2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Fred Meyer. Medium copper in color. Nose is fairly sweet with a bit of maltiness and a little spiciness. Not much in the way of hop aromas. Bready and earthy. Some sweetness, which is probably the honey. Malts and sweetness dominate. Hop character is virtually non-existent.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear amber pour - kind of like a darker apple juice. Small foamy head. Sweet malt, a very mild fruity note behind it all. But not good. Not at all.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours out a crystal clear appearance, that of a shiny, new penny. No appreciable head formation, though.
Smell: A meager pale maltiness, scantly bready with a thin layer of blonde caramel and cooked apples.
Taste: Sweetish, initially, with a blend of honey and light caramel, giving you a sugary start. Touch of (baked) apple. Bready, pale malts. Near nil hop character or bitterness. Drying with a bit of the yeast on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.
Overall: Definitely lacking character, here. It could have benefited from a bit more crispness and a bit less sweetness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweetish, typical vienna aroma. Bad label, twistoff cap, clear tan beer. Lightly sweet, a little husky, under bittered. Medium body, loses carbonation. Meh. Kroger, Savannah.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
10/27/14. 12oz bottle from Five Points. At first I was taking swigs from the bottle as I was doing some errands around the house and was thinking "this really reminds me of Budweiser," but I figured I’d pour the rest into a Teku and take a look. Why not. Here goes. Very clear copper pour under a small khaki head that fades but sticks around as a thick ring with mild lacing. The aroma hits me with caramel and a light floral aspect, surprisingly some booziness seems to be showing. Relatively mild flavor hits me, doughy, a touch of nuttiness, almost creamy, and a hint of caramel, but if I’m really paying attention, there’s also a distinct lemon juice-esque sourness that just doesn’t fit and lingers on my palate. Eh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours copper with a thin white head. Light aromas of sweet malt. Flavors are sweet malt with a hint of fruitiness and a hint of smokiness in the finish. Not much else. Highly carbonated mouthfeel. Not a very impressive beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper, no head. Not much aroma - bread? I guess? Taste is clean and crisp, lightly sweet, with a finish of light grassy hops.

Bottle purchased from Kroger. Clear amber pour with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, lager yeast and some corn sweetness with noble hops. Malty sweet flavor with caramel accents before a crisp finish.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Faint grain aroma. Taste is sweet malt and honey. Reminds me of honey-nut cheerios. Palate is clean, sweet, medium bodied and soft carbonation. It was ok but not one I cared for. Too sweet.
