What Would Eli Drink?
Henry Weinhard’s Private Reserve

Henry Weinhard’s Private Reserve

WWED Grade: B

Appearance: Clear. Gold. Like foil. Kinda shiny. No head on this pour.

Smell:  Like an American lager. Kinda musky. Not over-bearing at all.

Taste: Not bad. Bitter at the end. Slightly sweet for a lager. Not heavy on the hops – but enough that you know they’re there.

Drinkability: Very easy to drink. Mild carbonation.

ABV: 4.8%

Serving Type: Bottle poured in glass.


This is a great American Lager. Think of a fancy Budweiser or Coors - something along those lines. Easy to drink. Great lager flavor. The hops are well balanced. What more can I say? Sessionable? Absolutely. Pair well with food? Totally! BBQ, Chicken, Veggies. A real versatile beer. Just seems like something is missing – something I can’t quite put my finger on. A little more hops maybe? Or not – Henry Weinhard’s been brewing successfully since 1856. They obviously know what they’re doing – worth a try for that reason alone!
