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.

Pours straw yellow with light head which soon dissipates. Doesn?t have much flavor. Tastes like a cheap lager. Henry Weinhard always disappoints. Down the drain it went!

12 oz. bottle. Poured clear, straw golden with a short, stark white head. The aroma of toasted grains.. pale malt . Tastes of lemon zest and grassy bitterness around.. with a crisp finish. Light-bodied and a bit old school.

Very light gold pour, little head, decent lacing. aroma is faint...grass, wheat and corn. Taste is bland. Watery, light. Really nothing there. Better than mass produced but not recommended.

Appearance: very clear light gold color, pours with a small head that quickly fades to nothing Aroma: wheat, grain, light malt, Taste: light malt, has some grain to it, corn, hint of hops on the finish, Palate: average c02, slight hop and industrial aftertaste Overall: this has something that reminds me of industrial lager, although it is better than that it's still not good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A little grain or hops initial tasting...not real pleasant but not bad either. Just your generic beer but something my dad or his friends from the 60s would be satified with (think Falls City).

foyle (416) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: pours a 2+" sudsy white head that recedes quickly with mild lacing. Color is a clear straw with moderate carbonation present. Aroma: mild aroma of lightly toasted grain and clean water Mouthfeel: light and crisp with a mostly dry finish Flavor: sweet barley malts (white bread) combined with a healthy hop bitterness in the middle and finish. Overall: This is a nicely balanced and decent lager. It is more akin to Euro-style lagers than American macros in flavor.

From bottle. So this is what Henry keeps for himself when he wants to kick back with a good beer and watch an evening of LMN? Given HWs other offerings, I was prepared to trash this one. Pours a light gold like an extra fizzy urine sample in a pint glass. Nose is corn and running socks with some faint wet dog. No hops to speak of. Given this, the taste is pleasantly surprising. Decent bitterness, some actual flavor and a peculiar finish reminiscent of a McDonalds hamburger. Not real good, but okay for a pale lager.

Bif (2187) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Pours a pale golden color with a small head that fades to no real lacing. Aroma is on the mild side with some citrus and just a bit of malt sweetness. Taste follows with a bit of citrus and mild malt sweetness. Very light bitterness and a clean finish. Light body and smooth. Fairly bland. A decent non-offensive lager. Good as a lawnmower or BBQ beer.

bottle. Golden with small head. Tastes like a generic slighly-above-average lager. Easy to drink and even easier to forget.

Decent to say the least. A pale yellow color with a white head that had good retention and some lacing. Aroma had some nice toasted malts, a mild cereal note and a touch of corn. Flavor was balanced mostly toasted malts. The corn note did not affect the beer in any way for it was on the mild side. No real hop character but the malts seemed delicate enough to need any. Would make for a nice session beer. Carbonation was on the low side which i found to be a benefit.
