2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 USAís 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.

2.7 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. Isnít 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.

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.

2.6 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,

22 ounce bottle. Pours a copper color, clear, with a medium

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
When had on draft itís really not too bad, but most likely because Iím not in beer-geek mode and rather just enjoying drinking beer with whatever food is being had. Anyways, this beer does seem to have some decent hop character when I tried it, and overall it tasted fresh. Not complex, not really that interesting, but far from being terrible tasting. Light and oily, fizzy texture. Lightly sweet flavors of maple and grassy hops. Decent but you basically know itís not going to be too impressive.
