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.

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.

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 isnt in the best state. Still, this is a boring beer that I wouldnt buy. Still better than Coors Light.

chinchill (4747) - 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.

Popoff91 (124) - Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2016
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.

Syzzer (644) - Oregon, USA - JUL 12, 2015
General rating is 3.9. It is alright, easy to drink. The Cascade hops are not pronounced well, especially after production moved from Hood River, Oregon to Irwindale, CA in late 90s. Light, pretty crisp. Clear, moderately carbonated. 3.9 BD

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

Transfer from BA review on 11-12-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a straw color with a one finger fizzy white head. The head fades very rapidly, leaving only a thin level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass and a bit of foam on the surface of the brew. Smell The aroma is mainly of a grainy nature mixed with some smells of a caramel and corn sweetness. Along with these smalls are some lighter notes of a grassy and herbal nature as well as just a hint of a lemon citrus smell. Taste The taste begins with a rather bready flavor mixed with some lighter caramel and corn tastes. The taste upfront is rather smooth and refreshing remaining that way much throughout the taste. A bit of a grainy and grassy flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle to the end of the taste, but yet still melds well with the other flavors, maintaining a rather smooth taste. In the end, a light level of an earthy and herbal flavor come to the tongue, along with a slight increase in the sweet flavors of corn and caramel, to leave a somewhat sweeter, but rather pleasant and still crisp flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are good for the lighter tastes and somewhat sweeter flavors of the brew making this a rather easy drinking beer. Overall A decent brew at a reasonable price. Quite easy drinking and flavorful in the sweeter department with a rather easy drinking taste making for a decent session/ social drinking brew.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Sweet, lightly toasty malt aroma. A hint of citrus, and a little dusty. Light caramel/sweet malt aroma, with bread crust/biscuit. Citrus, subtle sulfur/vegetable lager yeast. Sweeter in the finish.

Bulk_Carrier (4999) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a yellow color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about twenty seconds. There was barely any lacing and what there was of it just slid right on into the beer. The smell had a weird burnt bready / burnt caramel notes to it. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with not much sessionability about it as Im getting a weird cardboard - ness rolling over my tongue. Overall, I cant say Id try this again.

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

HuskerTan (2076) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - FEB 21, 2014
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.
