The typical pale lager. Yellow, Fizzy. Bland. Really rather boring. Oh well.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Appearance: clear, pale, very pale, barely yellow color, with a nice fuzzy white head.
Aroma: zilch, empty, arid, nothing, nada...
Taste: I repeat, nothing, not terrible, but not much...
Alcohol heat kicks in, but therís little to stand over it, let alone with it....
No, not enough flavor at all...calls itself an "Ale Beer" on the label, but it most assuredly doesnít taste like it! Actually, tastes awfully like corn liquor!

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Not impressed with this one. Not much here and was unsatisfying IMO. Medium white head and fine-small sized bubbles that were mostly lasting. Transparent, carbonated and a yellow hue. Malty and somewhat of a skunky nose. Malt and metallic flavor. Unappealing. Smooth palate. Light bodied and sparse lacing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This bottled brew poured a large head of fine to large sized mostly diminishing white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and yellow-orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of malt and dough. Its mouth feel is initially slightly tingly with astringent malt hop notes and lingering slightly tingly astringent off palate. Its flavor contained malty doughy notes and was slightly off over all.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was much better than expected. Itís your typical pale lager yellow, with a fair amount of carbonation and a slightly herbal hoppy aroma. The surprise came when tasting. It had a kind of slightly sour fruit / bubblegum flavor somewhat like a wheat beer. How odd??? Perhaps itís a fault in the beer, but a fairly good tasting one. Finishes clean.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold body topped with a thick but diminishing white head. Average malty/bready aroma with some tiny herbal notes. Decent mouthfeel with good carbonation and fair hoppy flavors. It ends with a correct bitter final. This is very drinkable even if, as for most of the premium lagers, it has nothing to impress me.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hoppy aroma. Some flavors of corn and bread. Basically a macrobrew lager. Drinkable but lacking interest.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sparkling clear, light yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Sweet aroma with notes of butterscotch and corn. Inadequately balanced. Sweet and kind of gross. Light-bodied with an odd, syrupy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp finish. Iíll begrudgingly finish off this one pint bottle.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
This one tastes like that really corny malt liquor, the aroma is really grainy and rotten. The taste is clean and crisp, but has a metallic and chalky aftertaste. Not very good.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very light yellow color with a smallish white lid. Light grain and alcohol aromas. Mild vegetable nose. Light grainy sweet start. Uneventful throughout the quaff. Very fizzy in feel. Finish saves this one slightly. Nice pale malt flavors linger. Just to many distractions.
