COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Pale Lager, Henry Weinhards Private Reserve blends Henrys German heritage with the natural ingredients of the Pacific Northwest. If you want to impress your friends, you can say its brewed with 100% Cascade hops specially grown in Oregon. But all you really need to know is that its crisp, clean and one helluva beer.

On the deck in Kaneohe Oahu. Thanks to the last guest for leaving us leftover brews. What a view but not much of a beer.

Bottle. Clear light orange pour with a quickly dissipating head. Mostly a thinner palate, somewhat bland lager, but it has a little character that sets it above BMC. Not bad for what it is.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 For the style, this isnt half bad. Basically, this ends up being a more expensive version of the brand name lagers you see everywhere. It does this while pretending to be a craft beer. I get that. The Cascade hops give this beer a spicy, fresh bite, though. So yes, its a lot like all the other draft lagers. This one just has a bit more going for it.

For a mass-produced pale lager this is not that bad. If you want something easy to drink on a summer day, this would fit the bill. Its not offensive in any way and has a refreshing taste to it. However, I tried the Weinhards IPA first, which I thought was pretty good, and I was expecting the same quality. I was somewhat dissapointed.

travita (4935) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle. The look is clear, very light yellow colored, and light white colored head. The smell is fruity, malt, bread, just egh. The taste is malts, blah, bread, grain, and banana.

pours a clear golden color with a small white head. the aroma is rather weak but you pick pick up some sweetness and biscuit. the taste is very good, you pick up some sweet malt up front but there is a little bit of a hop kick at the end to balance it out. this beer is definitely worth a try!

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear honey color with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of cereal, grain, and sweet malts. Tastes like wet dog smells. Cereal, skunk, a bit metallic, and sour. This is horrible. Awful lingering taste in the finish.

For a normally bland style, this is very flavorful. Actually Little hop flavor and aroma. Not a thick malt presence. Light hoppiness is the only real flavor along with light hints of adjuncts. Very pleasing to taste something different in the pale lager category.

12 fl oz bottle. A10310940. Sep0213. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Clear pale golden colour with a tiny white head. The aroma is apple juice, mild sweetness, malt and... not much more really. The flavour is also quite mild. Some malt, mild dryness and some weak bitterness. Very drinkable but boring. Soft carbonation.
