1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample from bottle. Clear golden pour, white head. Grain, corn, light peppery hops, sweetness, and skunk. Very watery and not that enjoyable. Tick it.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A: The pour is a clear golden yellow color with a short lived white head.
S: Smells of chile peppers more than anything. A very green, spicy aroma which is quite strange. Skunk, yeast, and water make up a decent amount of the aroma, too.
T: Sweet and sugary with a definite corn and vegetable flavor. The odd spiciness and chile pepper character is also present. Other than the bad and strange, this is pretty watery.
M: Light in body with a medium carbonation.
O: This was one of the strangest beers Iíve ever had. And not a very good one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the Windows London Hilton. Pours an effervescent yellow with a foamy, white head. Cereal aroma. Sweet flavor, some straw, grain and cereal. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Some bready malts to finish, slight hay and slighter metal, more cereal. Not bad, really.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
10 ounce bottle, date on bottle cap of 07.10.10. The bottle was stored in the cooler at the Party Source, but Iím pretty sure itís nowhere close to being fresh at this point. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with a half inch white head. The head went away quickly, and there isnít much lacing, either. Aroma is sweet and bready malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís also a weird bitter taste that I donít care for. Mouthfeel/body is light, and itís a bit slick. Itís also smooth and goes down easy. For the style itís not a bad brew. Worth a try if you can get a single bottle of it like I did. I might have to try a fresher bottle of this in the future.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
10 ounce bottle purchased at Grocery Outlet in Woodland, CA. The aroma on this isnít half bad. Some sweet, floral, honey notes make their presence. Unfortunately, this does seem to give way to some corn hints as well as a some fusels. Transparent golden body that has a white head. Good staying-power. Metallic, fruity start, before this becomes...well, pretty watery and bland in the middle. Light corn hints later on, with miniscule grassy hop flavors. Iím sure the hop flavors used to be there, though. I get a smidgeon of fusel flavors late. All in all, this exceeded my expectations, and is pretty damn drinkable, too. Extra appearance point for the cool bottle, too.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.3L bottle, smallish head, clear pale straw yellow colour, lightish aroma with some yeast and a hint of fruitiness, medium bitterness which is a touch coarse with a complementing malty sweetness, dry aftertaste. Clean and quite drinkable on a hot summer day, but nothing special.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours transparent blonde with a slight white head. Nose is standard pale lager, with light hops, a corn-wheat type malt, and a little skunkiness. Flavor is weak but at least avoids skunk and has a little bit of pleasant sweetness to it. Hops are dead. Carbonation is low. Itís drinkable and servicable for the style, but that isnít really saying a lot. It is what it is.
