Not bad, not what it used to be. Ruined by Miller. Once one of the best "non- micros", now just a hoppier version of MGD. If you drink it, pour it in a glass. Something about the Miller carbonation system just doesn’t work for this brew. When poured, the carbonation is knocked out and the taste is much cleaner. Yeah, I know...all you snobs are saying , this dummy pours this crap in a glass...

Not a pale ale like Sierra Nevada’s, but more like Rolling Rock. I actually prefer this to Rolling Rock. It’s very smooth, very drinkable, but lacking in overall flavor. Also leaves a bit of a dry aftertaste that isn’t very pleasant. Still, it’s a great thirst-quencher and a reasonably good deal considering it’s average cost ($4.99/6)

Good toasty aroma. Color a slight reddish gold. Taste is decent citrus hops, lots of toast and ground grain taste. Mouth feel is unremarkable, but decent aftertaste. Better than mass produced beers, but a little less than a craft ale.

Not as good as the private reserve, but still a good western beer to have every once in a while.

Better than most grocery store beers. I had kind of expected a bit more oomph somewhere but it never showed up. An easy drinking brew anyhow.

Washington is rating Henry Weinhard’s. 12-oz screwtop, brought to me by my boss as a gesture of kindness. And because he doesn’t feel like moving a bunch of beers over to our new offices in the next building. Either way, it’s the kind of thing that puts a fellow in a fine frame of mind. Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with loose grayish fizz on top. Mild nutty, corny, slightly earthy-hoppy nose. Watery light body, a bit fizzy. Corn, nuts, and earthy hop on the mid palate. Amazing neutral finish for an "APA." But not an awful beer by any means. Just horribly dull.

12-ounce bottles in a glass. A little boring, but that’s standard with Pale Ales. Not bad, especially for the price, but I would pick the Private Reserve from the same company before this one.

355ml bottle poured a pale amber gold color with a small white head that left very little lacing on the glass. Aroma was cereal grains and citrusy notes. Taste was a light malty sweetness with a decent hoppy bitter finish. Certainly didn’t taste like Cascade hops, as I have had many Cascade hopped beers since and all were much better than this one. Just tasted like another macro swill pale lager to me.

Bottle. Nose is noticeably hoppy, but the hops smell more like pepper than one of the traditional hop flavors. Taste isn’t all that bitter, but there’s a little bite to it, along with a faint hint of citrus. Not a lot of substance to the flavor, but drinkable.

weak aromas of hay, grass, and tin can. the taste is reminiscent of a cross between a lager and a golden ale. got a little bit of barnyard funk. unfortunately not much in the hops department. ice cold on a hot humid summer day is the way to go here.
