Found a case of these in my in-laws garage, so here goes. 7 oz bottle served in a generic glass from the cupboard. Pours a light gold/straw with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is malt. Flavor is very sweet malt with no bitterness. Thin body with moderate carbonation. All in all not a bad pale lager.

This is probably about the 20th one of these little suckers Ive drank now, I think its about time to give er a rating.

Pours a clear golden color with a nice little tight white head, that is surprisingly well retained.

The aroma isnt great, doughy & corny for the most part. Not unappetizingly sweat but not particularly crisp smelling either. A mild herbal hoppy note redeems it, although the doughy/corny thing is far less offensive here than it is in a lot of beers.

The flavor is fine, particularly fine for a Minhas beer. Sweet and doughy, but the corniness is left to a minimum, some fruitiness is nice.... I swear I got green apple in some of the bottles, but its mild if noticeable at all here. Im guessing theres some acetaldehyde profile to the beer and that my palate is a little more sensitive than normal when it bothers me in the beer, tonight Im not really picking it up. The beer is balanced to some degree with a mild bitterness.

Honestly this is a beer I enjoy. I wouldnt have drank something like 20 of them if I didnt like it. At the same time, when you put it under the microscope things surface and become more annoying than when Im using it as a quick beer in the shower/something to have with dinner/the normal things I use this beer for.
I will be buying another case of it this weekend if the opportunity presents its self.

7oz baby bottle. This stuff is actually not that bad. Probably one of the better beers brewed at Minhas. Surprisingly sweet and slightly grainy, I could drink a lot of these. Actually, I have. Me and about 15 other buddies were in an Ice-fishing tournament and we had already finished 12 cases by 9am. Twas a good day!

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2012 Well obviously extra points for the coolest bottle ever. Pours a surprisingly deep gold with a small white head. Nose and taste provide surprisingly honey sweetness and a distinct almond tone. A bit on the sweet and corny side, but still quite nice, especially in 7-oz form. Thanks, Andy and Dennetta!

Poured from bottle, Im pretty sure that drowland drank an entire case of this stuff last week after the GTMW, pours a dark yellowish golden with a fizzy white head, aroma has a good amount of bread and some yeast, flavor has a sweet front end with a finish of grain, pretty clean, actually not terrible, touche drowland.

Aroma is grassy/skunky and mild sweetness. The flavor is malts, mild sweetness and a grassy/bitterness in the finish.

8/11/12. I drank about 20 of these little guys at cbfobes place last night. Cheap, light, corny, and mildly unoffensive. Cant complain, really.

Thin white haed, poof! Gone! Lovely, light, urine hued lager. Nose is soft grains and a little grass. Light bodied with yer typical PL carbonation (though better carbonation than some recently quaffed RIS,s i,ve had,,arf,arf!) though a certain twangyness shines through.Light grainy malts, lil sugary, some silage notes with faint apple and breads. Finish is too lasting and a bit sweet. uuuuuuuuuurrrp. Thanks christ it was only a pony bottle. You can now purchase this lovely brew @statelineliquors! Yeah Roberrrrrrrrrrrrt! Go buddy! ;)

Pours a light golden color. Smell is of malts and grains. Taste is the same, malts, corn, some grains. Feels highly carbonated in the mouth and overall is your average pale lager.
