Yuck! sour!!! is that how it supposed to taste? almost like drinking vinegar? thought I had a bad bottle from my monthly BeverageBistro.com initially, but when the next bottle tasted just as awful...I guess it’s not the place, but the beer!!

I suppose others may have had a bad bottle, but I’m lucky - I can get it straight from the source in downtown Raleigh. I have, in fact, never had it bottled. Greenshields is a gratifying beer on-site, with a smooth, strong flavor and a fair color. I recommend it to visitors - we locals already know...

uh oh, i have a feeling what ive been thinking was "bad bottles" of beer, is actually the beer. all of these beers smell the same, fruity and sour smelling like a jolly rancher. its amber in color, but for gods sake, is this a beer? there is no presence of hops, malt, whatever you think is in beer, doesnt appear to be in this. its not very good, i dont think i would recommend anyone to drink anything from this brewery. this beer is horrid. i think i liked their ipa actually, but all the others ive had, are sir- not worth a fuck.

Medium brown color, Large head. Aroma is malty, nutty and sweet. A medium bodied amber. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. This beer is a touch lactic, possibly infected. This is also the 2nd beer from this brewery that has this ‘quality’. Otherwise it’s pretty much a run of the mill amber. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a touch sour

Not much aroma. Chemical taste - unbalanced malt flavor. No hops to mention, either. Somewhat ok, but not worth repeating unless its free.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2000
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2004 The beer after departing the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a reddish-brown with a fair to middling frothy light tan head that evaporates quickly leaving a sufficient sheet of lace to cover the glass. Nose is all malt, a bit astringent and the start slightly sweet with a light grain profile and the top light in its feel to the palate. Finish is crisply acidic and the hops adequate in their spiciness, very dry, drinkable.
