1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The beer I grew up with. Drinkable, very light palate and nose. Better than a Bud/Miller/Coors, but not by much.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I find it hard to beleive that this is an ale. What a mess. First the good - poured a sparkling gold, fluffy long lasting head, great lacing. Palate is actually o.k. - soft and creamy (duh, "cream" ale). Taste is not bad - malty and moderately corned, a slight hint of hops. As expected, you can't let this one warm up, it turns oily and alcy tasting. I guess that's why there's a screw top on my 40oz'er - you can cap it and keep it cool in the fridge.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This cream ale pours a clear, straw yellow color. The head is thin, white, and fizzy. The beer has absolutely no aroma at all. It has a light body with high carbonation. The mouth feel is smooth and the finish is crisp. Not a lot of flavor, just a bit of malty sweetness in the background. I kinda like it, it has no off flavors and doesn't taste like it's full of adjuncts.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2003 Dark Yellow. Surprisingly dense white head, lively carbonation., Thin body, then a sour tase, barely any hops. Overall, Appearance is nice, but everything else is average to awful.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Light corn aroma, some beer-like flavor (maybe some hops?) Ends a bit sweet. If you gotta drink swill, this one isn't as bad as most budmillercoors products.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I saw this beer and thought it looked like a cheap rip-off of Guinnes, but for some odd reason, I still felt a desire to add it to my six pack. To quote the kick-a$$ country song, "What was I thinking?" Takste like a bad Miller High Life. Man, at least it's smooth...would be good warmer at a frat party or something, but that's about it.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2009 Crystal clear yellow brew. Large white head. Scattered lacing.
Smells like an American pale lager. Honey, green apple, white pepper and corn. Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Regarding flavor, it’s a bit on the sweet side. Not very malty... just sweet. Weak hops provide token bitterness. Short, not-so-clean finish.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 I don’t know about all this cream ale stuff... tasted more like an American standard. Pretty good for the price though... easy to drink. Beats the crap out of most beers in the same price range.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little smoother than the serious swill I usually drink. A little tastier, especially for the price.
