1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Reviewed from notes.
I poured this into a pilsener and a pint glass.
The appearance was mostly clear with a delicate haze to it and fast rising carbonation was seen filling the one finger white foamy head that ended up dieing within about a minute. Once the head died, there was barely any lacing and it was really stringy.
The smell was basically over-cooked caramel malts, kinda reminiscent of someone leaving their baking bread in the oven too long, but not long enough for it char up.
The taste was basically the same with that same over-cooked caramel aftertaste with a dry finish.
On the palate, it sat fairly light to almost a medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation is somewhat smooth, and I would say is decent for the style.
Overall, one I would come back to, probably not as I really didn’t appreciate the smell and taste too much.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale pour. Unremarkable aroma. Flavor of slight carmel maybe, like its manufactures seem to do with most beers its kinda bland. I would rather order bud heavy than over pay for its twin in a pretty bottle

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle - Clear gold pour, smells of grainy malt. It has a sweet, grainy flavor with maybe, just maybe a touch of caramel. Light bodied. It’s better than a regular Bud but there’s nothing worth paying extra for here.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
16oz can into a glass. Pours a corn/hay yellow, piss shades, glazed sunshine. Head is fizzly, light, loose and small, lacing streaks down the glass in small amounts. Aroma is gross, stale corn, tortilla chips, honey, and recycled malts. Taste is sweet malts, grainy and bland hops try to pounce around, seaweed somewhere, corn nuts, dry white wine blandness, and and ok sense of nutrisweet in the end. Not really good at all, the higher gravity and low price is what makes this appear before me. An amped budweiser in disguise really. Not the worst thing out there, the sweet mild kick of the malts is not too disturbing, but nothing to sit down and revel in. A good beer for fast pregaming.

Golden color. Thin white head. Scent is a little banana. Taste is pretty much the same. Not bad for what it is.

Good beer in a bottle. Good taste but there are better beers. Nothing special coming from it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: pours a golden straw with a foamy white head. Aroma is grassy, grainy and corny. The flavor is sweet and mildly grainy. Much like any macro lager... There is a time and a place I suppose, but it’s nothing incredible.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle into an ale glass. Aroma is very weak. Pour is a light gold with a thick head. Taste is on the low side, German bud I think. Finish is flat.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light golden honey color, with a very fizzy thin white head. Aroma is slightly grassy, faint hops, and not much else. On a good note I will say that there is not much off-putting about it, mostly because there is just not much there in the way of smell. Not much flavor on the front end, mostly just a burst of carbonation and seltzer water like flavors. This is followed by some mellow malty flavors which have an interesting after taste to them. Much different than I was expecting. Beer is VERY carbonated and that takes away from it in a sense. Overall this beer could be worse, but it could also be much much better. You can’t expect much going in to it though.
