2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
@ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear deep gold with a steady 1/2" head, wide bands of lace. Taste is sweet malt and adjuncts, growing a little in the palate before adding light carbonation to finish. Sure, it’s no big deal, but it is also drinkable, better than most of the big box guys. Glad to finally have a can.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. can thanks to Skyview. Canned as "Brain Belt, Zombie pub crawl" clear gold with slow steady carbonation. Thin layer of soapy head. Aroma is sweet grain and mild lager yeast note. Also a berry note?
Flavor is simple and smooth but really not much flavor. Sweet grain, corn and maybe a blueberry note, ok... The finish is real clean, no lager yeast after taste. Very easy to drink and beats the hell out of Bud, Miller or Coors. Decent for a pale lager.

Draft 3/03 (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a decent sized head. Aroma of grains and sweetness. Taste of the same with slight hops coming thru. This light bodied brew is pretty darn tasty as I was not expecting this to be this good.

Bottle - small foamy head, pale straw color, sweet malty aroma and flavor, mild fruity flavors, mild hops - not bad for a pale lager

Brain Belt can thanks to J. Been after this one for awhile, believe it or not. Pours clear cold with fluffy white head, good retention, lacing. Aroma: crisp - crackers, mineral, light sweet fruitiness. Clean lager. Taste: lightly sweet, dry finish, crisp - cracker, toast, dry finish with only slight bitterness. Palate: light body, crisp easy drinking. Overall: I haven’t had many of these pale lagers, but this one is really nice. Also, the zombie can is pretty rad.

There is something about this lager. Sweeter and lighter than the average pale lager and strangely addictive.

Thanks Jace Marti!
Light, light yellow with a loose fitting cap of bone white foam. Absolute clarity. Smells super light, some grain, some maize, some grass clippings and a hint of bread. Taste is also really light with some light malt, a touch of cornbread with sweetness some slight bitterness and a overture of steel. Thin, real thin with moderate carb and an off dry finish. Could slam this all day on a hot one.

I’m rating the Brain Belt variant, same beer but much cooler can, celebrating the Zombie pub crawl here in the twin cities. Pours a clear light yellow with very little head. Nose is sweet malt with a hint of corn. Easy to drink. Very subtle flavor. Will be sending these as bonus extras for the next few trades.
