Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear orangey-golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma was soft and rather artificial with caramel, dusty grains, and detergent with a pinch of lemon right at the end. The flavor had toasted, grainy caramel at the core with herbal and citrus hoppage surrounding.. it lost the detergent, but didn’t pick up anything really good. Lighter-bodied and slick on the palate.. never got its legs. This had no glaring flaws, but just wasn’t very good.
