2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle… Clear, light yellow lager with a mid-sized, fragile, white head and long-lasting, creamy retention. Grainy, musky, mild green chili aroma with just a hint of butterscotch – neither offensive nor inviting. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. Flavor slants toward the sweet side of balance – pale grains, touches of honey and butterscotch alongside lightly bitter, peppery hops. Crisp, bittersweet finish. Kudos to dmschefke for providing the bottle!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle 7/7/09 (Siciliano’s Market-Grand Rapids)-Pours a clear golden with a small loose white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma of grains, rice, and light hops. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is another run of the mill Pale Lager.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from dmschefke. Pours a light yellow with a small white head. Aroma had some crisp light malt flavor and grains. Some light hops actually coming through this lager. Not bad for a lager but just not my ideal style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Party World on Alpine, Grand Rapids, MI. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is grainy and corny. Flavor is much the same way without being very refreshing at all. Light, highly carbonated body. Meh.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from dmschefke. Gold pour, white head. Aroma is malty and grainy with a slight smell of hops. Flavor isn’t anything amazing, but it is refreshing and doesn’t have that horrible skunky flavor that many lagers do.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice gold with thick white head, surprisingly good lacing, head goes away quick though. Aroma is mild of slight hops, some malt, and wheat. Flavor matches. This drinks pretty heavy and is very refreshing. A nice beer to have now and then, but nothing special.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a clear yellow with little to no head. Not much aroma that I could detect. The flavor was skunk, and resulted in a drain pour after about a half bottle. I gave it a shot, though. Maybe a bad bottle? An inauspicious beginning for this beer, to say the least.
