2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ Victory: This one pours a clear golden color. Suprisingly, there was almost no head on it at all. No fizziness also. The aroma was quite mild, but not unpleasant at all. Some malts and a slight hint of floral aromas. The taste is actually pretty good. Similar to the macros, but a bit more flavorful and therefore it has more character. I know I had many of the old Schmidt’s beers back then, but I can’t really say if this is faithful to the old beer. I do remember my father drinking it because it tasted better than most of the other offerings of the day. I wouldn’t mind having a few of these.

What a way to celebrate the end of prohibition - Light in color with a grainy aroma. Taste is surprisingly good for a Pale Lager, with some good grainy taste and a nice mouthfeel. Best Pale Lager I’ve ever had, and a nice way to pay homage to the beer of yesteryear.

Pours clear gold with a tiny white head. Aroma is grass and cereal grains. Taste is sweet with a lightbitter finish. Light and airy. Overall this was pretty good’ it finished clean with no lingering off taste.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Aroma of corn, sweet pale malt. Flavor quite corny, grainy, but nothing offensive, quite refreshing in fact. For something modeled after shit, quite good.

Light golden color, clear with a small head, very macro looking... cereal grain aroma minimal hoppiness, flavor follows suit... as decent as a pale lager can be i guess...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Max’s. Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Slightly sweet cereal aroma with grassy hops. Sweet flavor with crisp grain, noticeable corn. Fades to a bitter hop finish. Not bad, but I found the sweetness a bit too much for me.

pretty decent lager, cool concept to have a recipe based on an old school lager, but i didn’t exactly dig the sweet grassy/corn taste that come with it, but it was very smooth and crisp with a bit of a sweet aftertaste.

Tap at Capone’s. Clear yellow color with spare lace. Aroma was sweet, sweet malt. Taste was pretty much the same, Almost honey-like, with just a hint of hops. Light body.

Draft at the brewery. Nice chugging beer. Light at clean looking. Had that cheap beer taste. Besides that tasted like a beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a lager dude but I had to give it a shot. Pours a clear, medium gold body with a small, and I do mean small, white head. All malt aroma. Flavor is that of a cheap macro lager. Not my thang.
