Awful. My tastebuds are ruined.

A - Extremely light yellow tint to an essentially clear beverage. Some bubbles and a wimpy head.
S - Sugary corn. Unpleasant.
T - Corn extract. Overt sweetness. Little hop flavor if any.
M - Nearly non-existent.
D - Never again!

Perhaps this one went bad. It didn't taste "skunky", but if I have another (unlikely) and it proves a great deal better I will edit this review. Otherwise as it stands, this is a Bottom 5 Worst Beer I've Ever Had.

Some beers you buy because they are great or outstanding, and others because they represent a great value in an everyday brew. Henninger's lager in the pint cans is the latter of those two. The local Liquor Barn chain store had the six-packs of pints for $6. I divide beer into everyday brews and weekend specials. If you look at the price, it's about like paying $4.50 for a six of something else, which puts you in Budweiser range around here, maybe even Natty Light land. Would I rather drink this? Oh, hell yeah. Is it my favorite? No, but at this price, I'm perfectly happy given most of the things I really like are in the $9-$15 range, or more. In the end, we pick beers because we really like them, and avoid ones we think aren't worth the money. $8? Hmmm, maybe, maybe not. $6 for six pints of good (not great) German brew, that's a helluva buy to me.

TJ's purchase. Time to try something besides Peter's Pils from my favorite low cost grocery/beer store.

A: Poured into a pilsner glass. Transparent straw. Lively carbonation. Slightly less than one finger head. Mediocre lacing. Minimal retention. Looks very macro. Large bubbles.

S: Smells very macro as well. Hops are of the cooked vegetable variety. Malt is thin. Not even crackery, really. Think communion wafers.

T: Taste is much the same as the smell. Small amount of vegetal hop presence is unctuated by a thin line of poor quality malt. Very underwhelming. Dry finish, with a sudsy aftertaste.

M: Thin. Not much redeeming quality here.

O: Feels overly manufactured, which it is. Terrible represenation of a Munich Helles. Missing the grassiness, straw and biscuit aspects of a good German light lager. Poor.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear goldish yellow, thin head disappears quickly.

Smell: Corn, grain, and grass, a little bit skunky.

Taste: Corn, grain, and grass.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry, and smooth. No real aftertaste to speak of, other than a hint of skunkyness.

The Verdict: Meh. This tastes like Germany's answer to Bud Light. Drinkable but forgettable.
