The Irish call this one "Harpic" (after the toilet cleaner). Not a big fan of it either. Light grain malting. Quite hoppy. Not adventurous. Almost a vinegar flavour - something which I had never come across in beer before. Not smooth, a bit rough. The pint I had had no head retention. Maybe it was just a bad pint.

Wow, hadn’t had this in forever but it’s hard to argue with free. Not much aroma but the taste is pleasant malt and sweet corn.

Bork (131) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Light but decently clean pale lager. Low on flavors and with some adjuncts in the aroma. Refreshing.

Per tractar-se d’una lager industrial no està gens malament. Por tratarse de una lager industrial no esta nada mal.

Vestlake (143) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2014 Pours a straw color with virtually no head. Aroma is corn and grain, bringing back fond memories of college. Taste is classic malty lager. I am enjoying this beer much more than I thought I would. Overall, a very nice lager. This will have a place in my refridgerator.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass most of the time but has been consumed from a pilsener glass as well. The one noticeable differences between the two glasses was a slightly larger and longer lasting head in the pilsener glass. The appearance was basically a light ruddy orange color with a quickly dissipating head. There wasn’t much lacing whatsoever. The smell had a stale bready maltiness running about it with some light apricots in and out. The taste was semi - sweet through the malts and basically just let the apricot blend into a disguised fruitiness. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a semi - sessionable quality about it. The carbonation finishes very smooth. Overall, not a bad beer just not exactly a go to, though I’ve never been a fan of the smell of this one.

1 pint can. Pours a pale golden with small white head that settles into a small rim that leaves somes lacing. Nose is of light peppery hops and fruity corn. Taste is pretty hard to find, dry and pretty much only void. Some light cereals and mineral water. Body is light, carbonation is high and mouthfeel is watery. Overall this was not good, refreshing if you don’t think too much about it but otherwise it is just incredibly boring. Meh.
