2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pale lager with slightly better taste than most macros. I do enjoy the can design and the fact this beer was sold something like 8 minutes after Prohibition ended.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very pale yellow color with bubbly fast dissapering white foam head. Aroma is like most normal pilseners, malty. Taste is watery, high carbonated pilsener, not the best kind. Short aftertaste. (Montreal 201210)

Pour on tap at the Denver Summer Brew Fest, clear yellow pour with thin to no fizzy head, aroma brought notes of adjunct corn, rice notes, touch of grain, spicy yeast, hints of grass as well. Taste is some slight grain, corn and biscuit notes, slight yeast, touch of earth and grass, finishing dry, clean.

Shared by turdferguson. Pours a clean piss yellow with one finger of foamy white head. Nose has some musty wet paper and corn with wet bread and old hay. No hop character and a sweet malt profile.

A very golden color, with a head that although small fights for longevity fairly successfully. Aroma is malty and metallic. Thin on the palate, flavor isn’t overly complex and is mainly metallic tasting. Not great, but better than other cheap beers. Also, the "golden nectar".

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz can-pours a white head and yellow color. Aroma is corn/sweet-grain/light malt. Taste is corn/sweet-grain/light malt, secondary spice (hallertau) hops bitter. Doesn’t work.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pretty much what you’d expect ... straight up American lager. Pale golden, active. Crisp, quite clean. Well balanced. Finish is a snappy malt. Nothing to complain about here. (#4255, 9/13/2011)

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Head is initially average sized, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), with light notes of DMS and metal.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky, unclean.
Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.
I bought this because the can said it was "XX Pure". If there’s one thing I look for in beer, it’s hardcore pureness. Who has time for softcore, it’s 2011 now. This sharpened me up for a bit of the ultraviolent and the old in-out, in-out. Well, it probably would have if I had been able to stomach more than a few sips. It’s XX Pure Swill, baby.

Ahh... Utica Club. Not the most complex or interesting beer in the world, but it gets the job done. $2 for a 12oz can at Monty’s Korner. Pours a straw yellow, moderate carbonation. Unoffensive taste. I’m not going to say it’s miles ahead of Budweiser/Coors/Miller, but it is slightly better. Would drink another if I was in the mood.
