Couldn't be less interesting.......................................

Grassy, corny aroma like a mass produced American lager. Ditto with the pale golden color and virtually non-existent white head. Starts malty sweet, but there’s not much malt. There’s about as much hop as a low end pilsener. The malt and hop play together, so arguably this is balanced. There’s just not much to balance. Amazing how an APA can be so low in flavor and aroma. Pretty much ahead of the standard Bud and Miller products though.

Green bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, spicy hops, light skunk and a hint of earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, light spicy hops and a hint of earthiness with a smooth finish.

Bottle from Ratman. Pours crystal clear dark gold with a small, fizzy white head, short with nearly no retention and spare lacing. Aroma is biscuit and cracker malt with subdued fruity esters and nearly no hops. Flavor is bland malt and old fruit with light hops and bitterness. Light body and medium carbonation. What a mess.

"cleaner than many pales, but that is because it’s a thoroughly weak interpretation of the style. standard macro attempt at a microbrew style. boring."

This clear golden beer poured with a thin white head and a thin hoppy aroma. It is a very plain ale with light hopping and a decent malt base.

Bottle. "Double hopped"!? With Cascade?!? WTF? I don’t want to waste precious seconds off my life even responding to such ridiculous bullshit. This is a pale lager, and a pretty shitty one at that. Like every other Weinhard piss juice. FAIL.

Can. Pours a light fizzy golden with a thin white head. The aroma is a strong sweet grain and corn. The taste is pretty simple; some sweet corn and a bunch of malt. Some honey perhaps and bit of stale bready flavors. Not horrible, just like a macro lager, but smoother and with better ingredients.

BuckeyeBoy (8861) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle Pours out a clear gold topped with a foam white head. Aroma of grain and light malt. Tast pretty much the same. A touch of hops at the end. Not much of a Pale to me.

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.
