2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention and no lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cereal, toast, biscuit), light spicy hops, and a clean lager character. Flavor is cereal and biscuit malt with faint hops and light bitterness. Light body and warmth, medium carbonation with a lightly sweet finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home, sent from Buffalo, NY. Been ISO this wale for quite a while. Isn’t a shelfie out here but I guess it is upstate New York. Clear, slightly burnt orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Some caramel / toasted malty notes in the aroma along with a bit of spiciness from the hops. Hmmm, more toast in the flavor along with some doughy / crackery notes. Almost reminds me of a Samuel Adams Boston Lager. Not half fucken bad.

For an Amercian lager this one is at least drinkable. Not great, but drinkable. A richer color than most and a better malt flavor without the skuniness found in many of USA’s worst lagers.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 This beer has all the best characteristics of several other bland american standards.
Appearance = Coors Extra Gold.
Aroma = Coors Light
Flavor = Somewhere between Budweiser and Original Coors.
Palate = Miller Light
This is "America's Oldest Brewery"? I guess this is a testament to the average American's affection toward flavorless beer brewed with lots and lots of adjuncts.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a clear medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel and malts. Lightly sweet a well. Thinner body. Nothing to go out of your way for.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Surprisingly quaffable, for a macro lager, especially at the end of a hot day, with few beer choices at an official function. Assertive carbonation,

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep golden colour, with a thick white head. Malty aroma, caramel, some noble hop aroma as well. Flavour is well balanced, caramel sweetness nicely balanced by floral hoppiness. A nice surprise.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On Tap. Pours a light brown with a small white head that dissipates rapidly. Aromas of caramel malt, faint hops, and apple cider. Taste is like caramel apple cider- not sure how to better describe it. Somewhat buttery mouthfeel. Hops are in wanting. Good clean and sweet finish. My pick out of the macro American lagers.
