2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Rated while drinking: Golden-leather color with a small, barely off-white head. Probably the most fragrant one from Minhas yet, but that’s not saying much. Grassy hops, sticky malts, etc. Aftertaste is probably the most pleasant part of the flavor; hops slowly make their selves known. As RiverHorse said, it’s very forgettable.
12oz bottle. Poured an amber color with a smaller sized head. Some fruitiness and caramel. generallee08 (773) - New York, USA - JUN 25, 2014
It has a fast fading, light fluffy head. It is bright white in color and full of big soapy bubbles. There is only some slick spotty lace here and there but not all that much to speak of really. The body is light golden honey colored and very clear. It has lots of visible in the beer and some big bubbles that stick to the inside of the glass. The aroma has a touch of leafy hops with some lemony citrus as well. Also there are notes of sweet bready malt and dry pale grain. The flavor has light grain, sweet white bread and some fruity orange marmalade notes as well as some sweet honey and buttery tones. There is very little bitterness and just a hint of citrus hop flavor. The finish is more of an acidic hop flavor vs. citrus hop bitterness. The texture is very smooth with a medium body and mellow carbonation.

Bottle from Brandon - thanks. Murky light amber pour with a smaller head. Light sweet malt with some metal in here. Not good at all. stevoj (5438) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Nice foamy white head with decent retention and good lacing sits atop a golden, borderline amber body which is clear and lightly bubbly. Musty vegetable aroma. Honestly smells like a lightly used shoe, not bad but definitely not good. Not hoppy, not malty, kind of yammy, a descriptor I tend to use for crappy, old, or old crappy beers. Up front it’s really generic and light in flavor, balance is far towards malt. Tastes like it was brewed ages ago which ironic considering it came from a package of antique styles, maybe they literally found some old ass beer. A hint of hops at the end, not as much as a vegetable flavor as I’ve experienced in some brews but still quite odd.
M/D - Light to moderate body. Drinkable. What I’ve learned from this variety pack so far. Old beer all tastes the same, and old.

Bread-like through out, similar to a basic lager. Drinkable enough but not very flavorful.

Aroma of sweet malt and honey with floral aromatics. Slight honey taste and light bittering hops. Crisp light aftertaste. Cybercat (6036) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Pours a nice clear amber with an average white head that leaves some good lacing. Aroma has a malty core with grassy, caramel and fruity hints. Malty flavor includes a bit of hops, a bit of apple and pear, and a bit of caramel - nice, if nothing to Tweet about. Smooth texture has good fizz and decent body. Better as a party drink, or to go with a meal. doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Golden with white head. Grain and mild hop aroma note. Full bodied, creamy texture, grain, lemon, and corn notes. Unbalanced, lasting hop bitter finish.

12 fl oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Copper with no head to speak of. Aroma is raisins and apples. Bitterness up front, then the fruitiness comes in. A ton of bitterness in the lasting finish. A lot of carbonation, surprising considering the minuscule head. Decent. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle: Poured a golden with white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt and barely, light fruit mixed in as well.
