From a variety pack from a tour of the Minhas Brewery.
Poured into shaker pint glass. Slightly cloudy glowing golden orange, dark honey color with a single finger off-white head that fades quickly into a few-mm thick cap of foam.
Smell is that good old Minhas bouquet of corn and sickly sweetness, although there is an encouraging smell of yeast (nice to be able to detect an actual beer ingredient). No hops to be found.
Taste...isn't horrible. It's the best Minhas brew so far, although that's not saying much. There is some actual beer flavor, although it's still mostly muscled out by that sickly sweet corn-water flavor.
Mouthfeel is relatively thin, but has a bit of body.
Overall, this isn't awful. It's not good though. Might be able to finish this one.

This beer poured out as an orange color with a quick fading white head on top. No lacing or retention on this at all. The smell of the beer is sweet there is no real hop aroma at all. The taste is very sweet, very sweet almost gross. There is no bitterness at all. The mouthfeel of the beer is decently carbonated and just very one dimensional. Overall this beer was not impressive at all to me. Avoid this one.

This will be the last beer I will ever have from this brewery for sure!
Clear amber gold in color this one had very little tan head which disappeared right away into nothing. No lacing.
The smell is of malt and sugar.
The taste was a non pleasant malt sugar mix. Nothing desire able in it.
Never again!

The 3rd and final beer of my Minhas morning, and after the first 2 my expectations were low. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has an amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is disgusting, plastics, cough syrup, boiled veggies, blech. Feels light and yucky in the mouth and overall I doubt the Swiss would want any affiliation with this beer.Strike 3 for Minhas, this is the worst of the 3.
