1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bucket of 5 cans at the Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse, NY, during Polishfest 2013. Written "First beer sold in the US after prohibition" on bottom of can. Pours a light golden colour with a decent slight off-white head and has lacing. Chemical nose of typical macro lagers. Wet mouthfeel, boring. Weird hop taste that is light and chemical-like with corn in the aftertaste. Not really good, but real cheap. I’ll stick to the US micros.

Can @Bruce’s thanks to Mr L. It pours pale yellow with a small-medium white head. The nose is skunky, dough, light sulphur, light butter and floral notes. The taste is dough, hay, straw, touch of citrus (pithy lemon & lime), touch of spice and light floral aspect. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Ah not that bad. I can see why some people would smash these back after a big work-out.

Can @ Bruce’s. Many thanks to Leighton for sourcing beer. I have to admit that at times I’ve doubted whether I’d ever get a chance to try this regional classic. Anyway, the pour’s clear light gold with a small head. The nose is pretty bready. Hints of concord grape and cotton candy. The taste is of lightly floral hops. Captain crunch cereal. Honey. Little else. Light body, somewhat watery. Plenty of carbonation. Overall, this is certainly a cut above your typical pale lager.

Can courtesy of Leighton. Not too shabby. Easy drinking with no real off flavors. light hops and corn like lightly sweet crisp malts. Crushable.

Thanks Leighton. Crisp piss yellow. no head. Corn and citrus nose. Wheat like zest. Taste is nearly flavorless. Maybe some lemon? Finishes clean. Great beer for a fishing trip.

Thanks to Leighton for hauling back a can of his all time favourite brew! Clear pale gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Mild minerals. Light floral note, super mild citrus that turns sweeter before the light dry finish. A decent and quaffable lager, just a trace of paper in the mid letting it down.
