3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, I was surprised to see the low rating on this brew, but I have to admit, I was surprised how good this brew was to me. Nothing stands out, single dimensional brew, but nice flavors.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
There is a reason this wasn’t imported here for well over one hundred years. This Vienna-style lager, which is an ugly light brown color, is terrible. It tastes like Busch in a can, no BS. Also, the glass they designed is quite top heavy and will fall over if you breathe on it wrong. Another attempt at trying to market a crap beer to unsuspecting drinkers. They call it ultra-premium. Ha!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
OK, so I thought this was going to be a pale lager. i tell ya, the difference between pale lager and some other styles is kindah grey. Lots of visible carbonation in this almost pale lager looken brew. First taste is a little dull with slightly more personality than a pale lager. yet its still well behaved. Not too bad up front. As session continues the co2 shines thru, good sizzle on this one. Gets a little more difficult towards the end, hints of medicine tries to appear but don’t. Crisp clean aroma. Can appriciate 4% but it actually comes across more like 5 or more.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle poured into a high-ball glass. The aroma is primarily a corn and unleavened bread. There are some muted secondary notes consisting of grass, cola, and even ash. It pours a clear brown-copper body with a quick dissipating, white, soapy head. A very thin ring is left with a clear surface and no lacing. The taste is a medium sweet with a light-medium bitter. The texture is on the thin side of oily with an abundant, active carbonation and a medium malty body. The finish is a watered down caramel and cornbread with a touch of apple, maybe some citrus, a light, dry spiciness, and an ash-like quality. There’s a slight cloying, burnt syrup aftertaste; it’s mellow and fades quickly.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours dark straw with frothy white head. Nose is pale malt, hopcitrus. Tastes of cloying corny pale malt, some hops although negligible, and a finish that reminds me of Baltika 9.

Another bland import lager from modelo. At least it's in a brown bottle, and it's not corona.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour is a clear copper with a fast dissolving white head. Aroma is some bready malt. Flavor is way on the watery side. No malts or hops show up and this might be one of the wateriest beers I’ve ever had. Like drinking a Corona with a little more color to it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Pale grainy malty base, hints of sweetness, and a relatively clean finish. Quite drinkable and really not that bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at King’s Hardware, Seattle
Amber color with generous head. Both aroma and flavour are fruity; smooth, but without much character; very low bitterness.
