This is not bad, same characteristics of everything else from this brewery. Light and easy to drink, balanced, watered down.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #4. Back in time even further...I don’t have all of these in strict chronological order, because I live in Resnais-Proust time. Google it. May, 2008: 12 ounce bottle from my former employer, City Market, probably the last crappy beer I bought there before my unceremonious, undeserved but unmourned dismissal in July of that year. Sample straight out of the fridge in an appropriate Coors Banquet glass. Pours a very, very clear pale yellow with a smallish, immediately vanishing white head...nose is pure, buttery diacetyl goodness, underlying corn sugar was later determined...body is sugary, syrupy, rather thick and cloying for this usually watery style, the low carbonation doesn’t help...no real malt or hop presence, barely drinkable. I was getting ready to move from Richmond to Burlington (both Vermont) at that point though, and cheap beers helped me through boxing up all the porn, guns, and Virgin Mary statuary.

Grain malts, bread, caramel, straw. Clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Light sweet. Sweet grains, molasses, lively carbonation. What a crappy Lager, way too sweet. Bottle at Grillstock Smokehouse, Bath.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle picked up out of boredom, curiosity, and the "gotta try them all eventually" factor. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a pale golden color with a little foam head. Aroma is an odd sour like grain, and a little fishy. Weird, and not a great one. I change my mind actually, it smells really fishy, and I don’t associate my kind of beers with that particular deScriptor. As this beer is described, it sounds really interesting, and appealing. I am quite disappointed. Nothing really special going on here. Funky grains, big lager yeast presence, and hardly able to consider refreshing. Glad I tried this, but it was a total miss for me. Can’t kill it in the score book though, it was finishable.

Look this is a poor beer, I had it years before I rated at a Super Bowl party I hosted. It scores better than most lagers just because it’s originally from New Orleans

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle at a friends house. Cajun cookout, so this seemed like a good choice. I was shocked by how sweet it was. Lots of creamed corn and sugar. Not much else. Didn’t seem very clean to me, but it washed down the food ok. Pretty unpalatable due to the sweetness. I’ll pass on this one in the future in favor of a Bud, Coors or pretty much any other macro.
