1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not much body, head or lace. Bitter, somewhat metallic taste. More like a mass produced beer from the last century than a present day craft.

Draft sample at Volksfest from notes. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had pale malts, grainy, lightly herbal, hint of citrus, general mass produced feel, this is cold, wet alcohol (light alcohol at that.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle.
Bottle and 6 pack carrier indicate Newport KY brewing.
No dates anywhere and cery cheap, so I was relieved that this is a decent beer ... an unremarkable lawnmower beer, but plenty drinkable.
Actually, the aroma is fairly appealing for style, albeit light in hops.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass. A piece of Cincinnati brewing history.
Pours a clear pale yellow with a smallish half finger white head. Very minimal head retention with just a little bit of lacing.
Aroma is bready malt mixed with corn and wet hay. A little metallic with some DMS showing through as well.
Bread mixed with grassy hops on the taste along with an assertive bitterness that lasts all the way through. No metallic taste and the hops shine through more than they do in the aroma. Less DMS too.
Overall, this is not bad at all for a budget beer. I’d like to think this is similar to a Classic American Pilsner and what might have been enjoyed by the masses 50 years ago. A lot better than today’s fizzy yellow beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured at a good temperature with little head or lace. Color is a clear yellow with a lot of large bubble trails. Aroma is grain, malt, beer. Flavor is similar to nose, bittersweet, carbonic tang, relatively simple. Body is ok, tho carbonation seems aggressive. Finish is like flavor - alternate between bitter and sweet. Guess it’s not too bad for a budget brew. Better than some I can think of for sure.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pale-straw brew that is serviceable for a decent drink: it has caramel, nut, and a little burst of hops in there as well. Okay. 12oz bottle
