Randhurst's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Randhurst (7) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Nice golden color ith tints of gren from the hops i’d believe. Tastes of quality barely, wheat, and decent hops. The 9.4% alc. is masked very well and takes effect smoothly. Goes down nicely. There’s nothing really wrong with this beer.

50cl bottle pours a clear gold with a ring of gold head. Sweet nose, malt, honey, metal. Flavor is very sweet, candy sweet, malt, honey, corn. Finishes sweet.

From a bottle at the DC RB gathering October 15, 2017.it is a clear golden color with an off white head. The Aroma Is of caramel. And the taste is thin like cherry cough syrup

Strykzone (7797) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2017
Thought this might be a country tick. Clear amber gold with a smaller beige head and active carbonation rising. Aroma of grain and fruit with caramel. An alcohol burn from the first sip. Well, this isn't very good. Some fruit, that caramel syrup, and alcohol.

Travlr (26417) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden color, small white head. Aroma of papery citrus. Taste is lightly fruity, crisp. Tolerable.

njnut (486) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Poured from bottle a lite brown with white head and lace that had little retention. Aroma was malt, corn and little else. Taste was like a bowl of cornflakes and Everclear. Was hoping for a bit more but have yet to find good beer from the homeland. Pass.

I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2015
5/30/15. Large bottle from World of Beer, Savannah. Copper pour with a small khaki head. Firey booze aroma, screams strong foreign beer, straw, corn, apples, yuck. Sickly sweet, adjunct flavor, boozy, corn, straw, hay, grassy, apples, grape drink, more booze. No thanks.
