2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-6-07 bottle. Clear amber color with bubbly head and lacing. Smells like a sour pale lager - very bland, no floral or fruity hints - just blah. Drinkable - but little to no real flavor or depth.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smelled some faint hops for a second before pouring it but after that it was all overly sweet, gooey mildly gauzy malt. Taste was similar with an odd sweetness and equally unusual tart bitterness. Not infected bad, but still not enjoyable. Something about the whole experience of this beer was extremely unappealing. Not the worst I’ve had, but I didn’t bother finishing the last half.

Slightly green with a dimpled white head. Aroma is minimal. Grassy, slightly metallic taste. Past its prime, perhaps, but it has a bitter skunky aftertaste. $1.60/12oz

Looks a bit disgusting with a cloudy greenish tint but has a decent white head. Pretty malty on the nose but quite sweet. Tastes a bit like a warm macrobrew beer.
