It is thin with mediocre head retention and straw color. Smell of adjuncts. Lets face it, this is a cheap American lager, nothing more nothing less. Better taste an lower price than any of the products from MillerCoorsAnhueser. Similar to its sister beer PBR. Am I proud to drink it? Not really but I am proud to not waste money on mass marketed swill.

Reviewed from notes.

Straw yellow with a respectable looking foamy white head. Poor retention and not much lacing. Smells and tastes like grain and corn. Somewhat sweet and musty. Feels thin and watery. Not something I care to try again.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

small head, gone rather quickly.

light amber color, cystal clear.

very light nose, some grain/corn.

light taste, smooth and dry. finished with minimal bitterness.

thinner than ice water in the mouth.

overall i would say for the price it was above average beer. i would buy it again and not be afraid to share it with friends.

Blatz has a thick, white head and a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, with minimal associated lacing. The aroma is of sweet, musty grains, and the flavor is of grass, sweet grain, and a touch of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Blatz finishes crisp and dry. Overall, this is very good, and I recommend giving it a try.

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

Appearance - Pale yellow. Clear and bubbly. Short and short-lived white fizzy head.

Smell - Moderately strong sweet pale malt. Corn.

Taste - Somewhat sharper than usual, but light, pale malt sweetness. Lemony and watery. Light and refreshing, but hardly distinctive.

Mouthfeel - Watery and crisp.

Overall - One could easily spend more on a worse beer. An adequate beer for the style.
