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.

Leighton (21287) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle in NYC. Pours clear, bright gold with a weak, white foam head. Lightly toasted pale malts in the nose, some faint straw and cereal. Light sweet flavor, all pale malts, biscuits, cereal, light citrus notes, light bitter straw. Light bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Crisp and clean on the finish, some cereal, subtle grass and citrus, more biscuits and hay. Quite an outstanding pale lager. Very drinkable, nicely balanced.

For a mainstream lager it’s not that bad, really. In fact, the general (former) quality of this beer I think laid the groundwork for the palates of Portland to embrace quality beer in the way that they do.

bhensonb (15215) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Aroma of very light malt. No noticeable hop. Brassy gold color with a frothy white head. Thinnish body. Starts with light sweet malt, moderate carbonation, and some hint of pilsener type hop in the finish. It actually has a little bitterness that stays. Not outstanding, but better than the mass produced swill. Much better.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2009
Bottle at Hana Hostel, Hiroshima. Clear golden - white head. White bread, hay, grainy, straw, toasted, freshness, light hoppy, clean and high drinkability. OK.

Ratman197 (14848) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, light straw and a hint of spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, light carmel and hints of citrus and spice with a crisp malty finish.
Used to be my favorite beer in the 80’s but does’nt have as much flavor as I remember.

imdownthepub (14556) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Highly carbonated golden beer with a lemonade head. Very little character beyond the fizz, no silky malt or hop characterisics. Absolutely awful.

2.3
Drake (13739) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2012
12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a large fizzy white head. Average head retention. Skunky aroma despite the brown bottle, along with notes of faint malts. The taste is pale malts, corn, tinny hops. Medium bodied. Meh.

"this is a miller product. that explains a lot, being that it’s usually found in the micro section. better than all of the products with miller on the label, but not all that good."
