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

Clear yellow pour with white head. Aroma is grainy. Taste follows nose. Good mowing the lawn beet. Not good for much else.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Bottle. A- Cereal, citrus, wheat. A- Golden color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Cereal, watery, malty, citrus, wheat, slightly sweet. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish. O- Just like a glorified Bud Light. A decent beer with a little bit of flavor but still lacking a lot of qualities. Drinkable nonetheless.

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 isn’t 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, it’s 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. It’s 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.

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.

12oz bottle. Pale gold with a small white head. Aroma is of banana lady taffy, grass, grain. Taste is of sugar, grain, and corn.

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.
