1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
Undated 16 oz can of Buckbean Tule Duck from Total Wine Charlotte 1 day prior to consumption.
Great looking beer is a very red amber with a large, frothy tan head that leaves sticky lacing. The body is clear. Smells like a contaminated beer; tasting confirms this. Undrinkable. Research show that the brewery went under some time ago. Rightlyfully so, in my experience. This is the second Buckbean I’ve tried and the other, a different style purchased last year, was also contaminated and nearly undrinkable. Shame on Total for selling this beer; it should have been pulled from the shelves by Total Wine some time ago.

I enjoyed this in a perverse way. Perhaps past its prime, this was a lovely little full bodied, sweet amber with a weird phenolic aftertaste. A little diacetyl too.

found this one on tap at Nu Yalk Pizza. A pleasant surprise, and so far Buckbean’s best offering. Pours a dark red in color with some off white head, good retention and a well balanced aroma of caramel malt and lively hops. the taste is more caramel malt (ala Tahoe Red) but with a fairly pleasant bitter dry finish. kind of a hybrid amber ale/irish red."

RBJG2 can. Big thanks to Travlr for these US state ticks! Aroma is malty, bit indistinct. Taste is buttery, quite sweet. Not so interesting but ok.
