2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: 7/11 near Grantville (San Diego, Calif.)
Price: $7.49 for a 6-pack
Misc.: Best by date on label was June 17, 2013
Poured an amber clear color with a finger of off-white head that dissipated rather quickly. Bad lacing, bad retention. Looked more like a pale ale than an amber.
Smelled more like a pilsner than an amber ale. Got wheat bread, cereal (Cheerios), hay, toast and honey.
Tasted very close to the smell. Got Cheerios, bread, grass, wheat, hay and wheat toast.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft (below average) carbonation. Abrupt finish.
Just not a good beer. Donít try it if you were curious. I will not have it again (after the other five in the box).

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Saw this as the gas station and had never heard of or seen it before, and it was only a buck so what the hell. Aromas are dingy and yeasty. Flavor is rather weak, and reminds me of yuengling a bit. Nothing bad or offensive about it, but makes sense now seeing that it is a product of millercoors that this is just another run of the mill lager. Pretty sure it softened up my eternal chub a wee bit as well....

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A light copper tinted brew with a fluffy bright white head. There is a fall leaf smell along with hints of bread crust. There is also some peanuts. This tastes like a fairly sweet caramel covered bread crust. There is also some light nutty pecans with a raw potato finish. A little over carbonated. This is a decent light brew with just enough flavor to keep it drinking well.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a tasty but not overly complex amber with a robust mouthfeel. Not a lot to add here. Highly drinkable, great for the opening days of the summer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from beer rep party leftover stash. Boring dulled orange, filtered, weird factory alternate sized carbonation bubbles rising to the oily surface. Sweet and completely unimpressive aroma, factory putrid alcohol stains. A Vienna is a beer they could clearly conquer, but they dumb it down, and cheap it out..and this is what you get.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A half finger of head on a clear, medium straw colored body.
The smell is pleasant. Dry grain mostly, with a little of that cotton candy aroma that comes from using rice.
A fairly flavorful lager with a sweet foundation. The bitterness is subdued, which results in a smooth and easy to drink beer.
A crisp and fizzy texture. The high carbonation is a detraction.
A descent drink.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mild lager with a decent level of gravity at 5.3%. Brewed by Coors Co, so I wasnít expecting much. The finish is nice, and itís a fair session beer at the end of your night after a bunch of rich stuff.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(12oz bottle) Pour is light amber, very creamy and lasting head, but the head breaks up into an odd cloud like pattern after some time. Nose of biscuit, lager yeast, plastic, nothing too offensive, nothing too great. Taste is earthy, caramel malt, lager style hops. Medium carbonation, palate linger is biscuit/crackery. Not my style, but reminds me a bit of Sam Adams Boston Lager, which is good because theyíre in the same style.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty damn pedestrian. Has a bit more depth than the typical macro lager but thatís not saying much.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Pours clear amber with a frothy off white head that lingers around. Aroma of pear and yeast with some malt. Somewhat sweet spritzy taste on the first drink but it gets better towards the middle. I like this beer but it still has that macro taste to it. Not sure if they use corn or rice but Iím pretty sure itís not 100% malted barley in the recipe. Nice clean crisp finish.
