A notch above malt liquor, has that old timey, cheap, street walking taste to it that Ballantine has. Not offensive, just headache wrenching. Skunky, green bottle nose, pillowy white head sitting on tip of a light golden pour. Sweet, alcohol taste with some overripe fruit notes coming though. Good companion for a lonely night if you do not need to wake up early the next morning. Not gut wrencing by any means, just slightly similar to smoking a Swisher Sweet - you get what you pay for.

This is the probably the blandest pale ale I’ve ever tried. I guess you get what you pay for. Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Henry’s brews are not bad, considering that you can often find them on sale priced near the Old Milwaukee’s price range. So if you are going somewhere like fishing and need a lot of beer for a little bit of money, you can buy Henry’s and not wake up the next day with a sour stomach and a pounding head.

Slightly better than the private reserve due to a bit more hoppiness. But essentially boring. slimweebs (164) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Thin and watery, but has more flavor than most macrobrews. A step up from PBR.

Pleasant, but nothing special about it, might as well get 12 stones for the same effect. brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Unimpressive. Poor washed out color. Faint hop aroma. Has a liquid dish soap taste to it. Weak flavor. Not very memorable. twilightsensei (3) - anon, Utah, USA - MAY 10, 2004 does not count
It goes down smooth without any aftertaste. I put a lime wedge in mine. It is weak. I think the alcohol content is 4.61%. It is one of the cheapest beers at the liquor store here in the people’s republic of utah. Would I get it again...not likely or only if I was desperate and on a budget. mreeves (276) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2004
A thin, watery, golden-colored brew. I like the review just prior to mine indicating it smells like "paperclip and armpit". While I've never tasted a paperclip, armpit seems an appropriate description. Insulting to the American Pale Ale category and all it stands for. willblake (2664) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2004
Pale, foamy, looks and smells like skunked Heineken. Hints of paperclip and armpit. This is the worst of the bunch, a true drain pour.
