1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
$4.99/12 at Albertsons, I got 2 each of this, the PA and the wheat and went through the self checkout -- guess that thing’s good for something. Decent looking beer, cloudy yellow, really fizzy. Not much aroma, you can tell it’s a wheat beer though. Taste is of a little lemon, nothing particularly offensive like the other two I drank.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Saw this at an Albertsons that is closing, was on sale for $5.49 + the store closing sale put this at just over $5 after tax. < br>
12oz bottle with a smudged date code.
Starts out promising, hazy yellow with a tall eggshell white head.
Aroma is light, cooked banana and sour lemon.
Flavor was light as well. Barely detectable lemon, with some wheat.
That was a waste of $5.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Saw this brand in my local cheapo Canned Goods grocery, had no idea it was another MacTarnahans spin off.
Comes in a 12 oz brown short neck, nice simple label with two palms of course.
Poured into the pint glass its actually quite a nice representation of the style, slightly dark ,murky orange, with a small pure white head,livelly carbonation visible.
The aroma though was pretty non-existent except for a curious sour ,dirty aroma..like slighly smelly socks!
The taste ,thank goodness, is not as bad as the aroma..its just the usual american version oif a wheat beer..slighly "zesty"..a little wheat..and mostly boring.
Its pretty average on the palte..not too watery thank goodness.
All in all for a supermarket beer its quite drinkable.
