1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Iíve said it before and Iíll say it again.. Thanks to Bob for the bottle! Poured clear, bright golden with a dusting of white head. The aroma picked up wet grains, dishwashing detergent powder, and dry honey for the most part.. nothing about this said "Drink Me!". The flavor was a touch better, but barely.. tartness of unknown origin hit the tip of the tongue and rode all the way through the drink.. wet grains and honey again at the core.. sticky, prickly alcohol, salt, and mild woody bitterness around.. actually lasted a while on the unpleasant finish. Light-bodied, but tacky in several places on the palate.. nothing that was showcased here was any good.. yikes!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a clear golden color with a decent sized white head and a moderate amount of lacing. Aroma is of grain, corn, and sugar. Taste is of sweet corn with very little hop bitterness and a little bit of grass. Watery mouthfeel, pretty each finish, but not overpowering.
