Got this in a single bottle.

A- A hazy golden yellow color, not really any head and no lacing throughout.

S- Smelled a bit like malts, not really any hops coming through, and a bit sour.

T- This killed it for me. It really tasted like tapwater with a beer accent to it. It was sour, slightly carbonated. I couldn't taste anything specific but tapwater. I was really letdown by this one.

M- A grimy feeling left from this one. Almost mineral like consistency with the tapwater feel to this.

D- I wouldn't drink more than one of these. If it was ice cold maybe better off.

I was really upset by this beer. Mad Anthony makes some good beers, this is not one of them. If you're going to try one avoid this because it will not leave a good impression with you.

Attractive beer that poured with a translucent yellow hue and pure white, large head. Aroma was very lightly hopped with a faint citrus tone and nothing else detected. Taste was very light, very watery. Mouth feel was very thin, too thin to be enjoyable. Watery feel elimnated most taste and too away from the decent aroma. In fairness, pretty close to style, but just not a beer to seek out.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Straw colored, slightly hazy in the glass with a thin white head.

Floral smell of hops with a slight scent of honey lemon.

Nothing stands out in the taste other than what I believe to be honey. Hops are only slightly present as the sweetness tames the bitter.

There is a nice cleansing feature to the beer, but that is its only redeeming quality.

There isn't enough flavor for this to be very drinkable, though it might make for a decent summer beer.

Pours a very light yellow color with a bit of haze and a finger's worth of head that breakds down pretty quickly. Nose is less malty than just sweet and grainy, without much of a whiff of hops. Even some of that modest character doesn't make its way through to the taste, which is rather bland--grains without any particular character. Mouthfeel is reasonably balanced, and this is smooth and adequately drinkable. Bottom line: This one is a decent representative of a style that doesn't appeal to me.

12 oz bottle pours a clear light golden body with a very large white head. Generous patch lacing adorns the glass. Aroma is mostly buttered popcorn(diactyl?) with some light notes of sweet malt and spicy hops. Light body is well carbonated. Taste is well balanced and spot on for style. Light spicy hop bitterness and a sweet bread maltiness. A hint of soapiness is distracting. Drinkable but forgettable.

Bottle into pint glass.

A: Pale. Small head that dwindles quickly, no lacing.

S: Sweet malts. A hint of what malt I believe? Very slight hops, Euro pale odor?

T: Ever so slight Blonde flavor but what hits up front with an off Berliner Weisse flavor.

M: The only thing better than okay. Light body, bubbly a bit oily not to dry.

O: I may have got an older bier. If I try it again and its better I will revise. Not an undrinkable bier, but one better suited for hot summer sun instead of -22 polar vortex shit.

I found this particular lager to be just so-so from our local brewery.I wasn't all that impressed by it to say the least as is evident with my rating of this beer.It poured a medium sized head and it left a good lacing on the sides of the glass.There was very, very little taste with this beer, but it did have a mild ending flavor to it.

A- Hazy gold. Almost no head and no lacing.

N- Sweet malts and some crisp floral hops. Hint of alcohol

T- very crisp with decent blend of malt and hops. Tastes a lot like a better massed produced beer.

M - light and fresh.

D- very easy/. Ifthis were mass produced would likely feature as a stable in many fridges across the country.

Thanks to raznug (my Secret Santa) for this one!

A- Body is a very pale straw yellow color that has the slightest bit of translucency. An aggressive pour produces a head of one finger or so but this fades to a very thin collar pretty quickly. No lacing is left behind in the glass.

S-The main scent is sweet pale malt. That's pretty much all I am getting.

T- Faded sweet pale malt flavors upfront with almost nothing to balance it out. The finish adds just a touch of soft pine and is very clean other than that. Nothing lingers on the palate.

M-Medium to high carbonation and a light drinkable body-that is a hair thinner than I like.

D- Not bad for a run of the mill blond lager. Very light and drinkable. Reminds me a lot of an all-malt lager rather than a BMC type though. Not bad. Would take this over BMC any day.

Let me just start this review by saying I've had this beer both on tap and now in bottle. There is not a whole lot of difference, imo.

Pours a cloudy yellow with decent carbonation. Thin layer of head on top of this beer throughout.

Smell is off. I detect a sour note. Not a huge fan.

Taste is slightly of malts. Bit sour.

A very bland and simple beer. I'll stick to their top only beers.

This brew poured a medium head which left a nice lacing. It produced no noticeable aroma. Probably from the fact it had very little taste too. It did have a mild finish that was hard to describe. The brew is brewed in my home town of Fort Wayne Indiana.

A: Nice golden pour with little yeasty flakes flittering about.Thin wispy head.

S: Smells of light malts and floral hoppy notes with some sour scent.

T: First to the taste is a light hop and then some malty notes and a yeasty after taste probably from the flakes.

M: Medium body to full, almost no carbonation slightly acidic bite almost alkaline like when young and touched 9v battery to tongue...hmmmm

D: Dont care for it to much but could drink a few of them, when drank with some nice bitey chese... a sharp cheddar it was a bit better.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Presentation: Poured form a 12 oz brown bottle into a standard pint glass. Laebl is a typical Mad Anthony, logo across the top and the name of the beer superimposed over a picture of some brewing equipment.

Appearance: Pours with 2 fingers of white foam. This settles quickly into a half inch head. leaving no lacing. The beer itself is pale yellow with plently of activity. Some fairly substantial chunks; not what I would expect from a lagered beer.

Smell: Smells of slightly sweet malt/adjuncts, with a strong aroma of herbaceous and grassy hops. Slight metallic twang.

Taste: Mild sweetness upfront with a smooth malt flavor. Adjunct flavors are present, but as a nice compliment, not overwhelming. Some hop bitterness int he finish, but nothing strong or lingering.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation level is average. Body is good.

Drinkability: While not overly impressed by the looks, this one does deliver on taste. Mild and easy drinking, a hallmark of the style. something that would be nice on a hot day.

Oh my lord, what a lot of floating particles. The beer, when poured into a glass, is a cloudy pale yellow with large and small floating particles. This is not a good looking beer. The aroma is floral and sweet. There are some fruity elements, like a peach or nectarine. The taste has a touch of hops, but maintains a grainy and wheaty flavor. Absolutely a yeasty aftertaste, full of body. The mouthfeel is full and heavy. It leaves a strong impact on the palate. Middle-of-the-road.
