1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear extremely pale gold color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing, oddly, considering the quality of the rest of the beer. Aroma is beans. Seriously. Beans, stale leafy hops and not much else. Taste is sweet malts with a faint hint of hops. Some graininess in the finish. Thin-medium bodied. This is all over the place, very strange and very, very bad.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Clear pale golden with a small head that disappears right away. Disgusting skunky aroma with some grains - and as ClarkVV mentioned reminiscent of canned tuna water. Flavor has some grainy sweetness and a lot of of metallic skunked hops with light bitterness. Light-bodied and watery. Horrible.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle... Clear, light yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is mostly sorghum and herbal hops with a faint note of skunk. The flavor is bland, but decently bittered for an n/a. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Astringent, moderately bitter finish. Went well enough with my plate of pork and guava gravy. Most importantly, it didn’t hinder my driving afterwards. Now that I’m home, it’s time for a real beer!
