2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On Tap. Crystal clear light copper color with white head hanging around the edge of the glass. Light aroma mostly sweetness of some sort. Light and fairly crisp flavor of malty sweetness and some dryer grain malts. I can’t detect any hops. Very light beer that ends a little un-balanced leaning toward sweetness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured clear honeyed amber with a light cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up honey, corn syrup, and a touch of vegetable oil, with light lemon zest around.. kind of a dank impression on the back of the nose. The flavor found more honey and some bready malts at the core.. lemon left a little tartness on the edges, and some residual sugars on the finish.. too sugary-sweet at the end. Lighter-bodied with an odd interplay between tartness and the sugars.. OK level of carbonation.. decent stuff.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. An amber color with little aroma. It's deinately better than your standard American lager, with more of a malt presence. Easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Wintzell’s Oyster House in Mobile. I was surprised at how common this beer is in Mobile and other cities down south, since it’s such a traditional Yankee brew. Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, hops, grass, grain. Flavor follows suit, with a general earthiness to it. Mouthfeel is light and grainy. Finishes crisp with minimal aftertaste. When the choice is between this or typical American macro lagers (and that will generally be the case), I’m going with this every time.

A Sim Rate (on tap at Solas, NYC): Smells like soggy clothes when it’s been raining. Tastes a bit like bud with a slightly aley tinge. Crap palate.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
[1267-20080408] 12floz can. Grainy haystacks and dirty barn floor aroma with mild green leaves and fermented Concord grapes. Clear, bright amber body with a medium-lasting bubbly white head. More fermented grapes in the flavour, mostly grainy alcohol and floral hay and straw bundles and peat notes. Medium body is grainy but not harsh. "It’s better than a kick in the teeth."

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smooth and crisp taste with some malty undertones. A really good beer to drink in a bar, or really anywhere. A decent head, but not much of a aftertaste or aroma. Good beer.

On draft at a bar in Alexandria, Virginia October 2006. Pale amber colour with a slight white head. Aroma of sweet malt with a whiff of hops. The flavour also started with a touch of malt before a decent bitter finish. Pretty good for the style, which I’m not a great fan of.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet malt aroma, not quite caramel, but close. Medium/thin body. Flavor is the same sweet malt from the aroma with the faintest hint of hops. This is way better that most pale lagers, I actually enjoy drinking it... and it’s pretty common to find on tap at many bars here in the northeast.
