2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 Bottled. Not as flavorful as the better known SN, IMHO. Very pale pour. Just a touch of hops (but at least there are hops). Not much else to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow color with a fizzy head, vague hoppy aroma. The attraction here is a VERY smooth lager taste, well-balanced between malt and hops with a clean but bitter aftertaste and slight sweetness throughout. I would definitely return to this again when the mood is right for a refreshing lager.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2005 For as smooth as this beer finished, I was suprised at the mild bitter bite at the onset. I thought it was a pretty good beer, although nothing spectacualr.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured golden, clear and effervescent with a fizzy white head that dissipated completely. Aroma of grass, corn, and spicy herbs. Taste follows from aroma, with some toffee mixed into the rather dry finish. I’m not too fond of paler lagers, but this one is nicely drinkable.

Premium lager vs Pale lager
Premium = good
Pale = generally crap
Everyone goes crazy for ales but nothing beats something like this for summertime drankin
Golden color, almost no head, some lacing. Smells like ever so faint hops. Light taste, some hops, some malt. Pretty good.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma was of fermented malt. Cloudy gold body with small head on pour and disipated quick. Has a tang hoppy taste to it. Heavier on the palate than some of the other over commericalized beers. Decent, got the bitter taste out of my mouth from that last beer.

The first taste is a litter sour, but once your palate gets used to the taste, the beer is tremendous. I enjoyed this quite a bit.
