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.

From Apr 2007 This one pours from 12oz bottlea clear light gold with a large head of foam that hangs around quite nicely and has some nice sticky lacing. The smell has a hoppy nose to with a touch of malt....typical of the style. The taste has a slight lemony hop flavour up front with some sweet malt in the background and finishes crisp and dry. A good thirst quencher is what it is and that's not a bad thing at all.

From old tasting notes. Light yellow gold color. Bubbly white head. Mildly assertive hops in the bouquet. crisp, light, dry hops are nicely balanced by a firm malty backbone.

12oz Flasche. Helles Gelb, flacher Schaum. Süffig aber langweilig. Industriebier, dass auf Microbrew und Tradition macht.

This one is pretty bland. A bit of maltiness, some grain, no notable hops flavors at all. Tastes mostly like water. Full disclosure: I just drank two tripels and ate some Indian food, so my palate isn’t in the best state. Still, this is a boring beer that I wouldn’t buy. Still better than Coors Light.

chinchill (5395) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2016
12 oz bottle on the bank of the McKenzie River (Oregon). No date or ABV found. Clear golden body with excellent clarity and a fine head that leaves patterned lacing. Medium plus carbonation and medium-light body. Bready aroma with a touch bolder flavor than average for style.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2016 $5.97 for a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles, poured into pilsner glass. Not as good as Pilsner Urquell, but for the price it is a pretty decent pale lager.
