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... weebs (17) - USA - SEP 3, 2006
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) CasperQuaffer (142) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 11, 2007
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. celticg99 (22) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2001
Not as good as the private reserve, but still a good western beer to have every once in a while. HH (166) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 23, 2002
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. Popoff91 (124) - Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2016
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. reebtogi (6385) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2012
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. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2014
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. crispaire (244) - - FEB 22, 2017
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.
