Smells so skunky I can’t hardly drink it. I thought that maybe this batch was bad and someone had poorly handled it. Nope. Every batch smells like a skunks rear end. Awful.

The wise man said: "Pours a yellow color with a medium white head. This beer brings back memories of college. I used to drink this stuff then wake up in my roomates bed. Not sure what it is about this beer but it makes me a wee bit crazy. Anyway, it has a metallic aroma and a flavor to match. The body is fizzy and cheap feeling. I can’t believe I actually liked this beer. Ugh!"

Bottled. One of my favorite standards. Golden, non-descript, fizzy. Decent mouthfeel, light flavor, although the flavor present it kind of hinting at yeast, but kind of barley...session beer.

pours yellow with a white head that vanishes quickly. smells like a bud or similar macro. has more flavor than aroma suggests, but then again the aroma suggests no flavor. sour barley taste that is not overly offensive. i can’t think of anything that stands out as overly good or bad about this.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Can (keg can, how cute). Ok, automaticaly loses points for the cutesy can. On to the taste...Nose is nothing special, kinda corny and sweet. First flavor notes are cardboard, staleness, and (seriously) soy sauce. Watery, and bland, and they try to cover the blandness with over hopping. A poor attempt at masking a crap taste with too many hops. Makes Grolsch taste like ambrosia. Finishes bitter and still stale.

leaparsons (9674) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2004
Pale gold with a decent head. Aromas are sweet and sugary with corn, grain and metal. Flavours are sweet and syrupy for a lager, although some floral hops are present, too. No great aftertaste but this is basic and inoffensive.

Poor head and colour. Did it taste anything? A sweet, light aftertaste. Good as a thirst quelcher.

You have to be in the mood for something sweet. This beer tastes like sugar water. It has something more that can be strangely addictive at times. More often than not it is a poor choice, however sometimes its taste may fit your fancy.

STAMEEX (5) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2004 does not count
This beer is one that really seems to vary depending upon something. Sometimes I love it and sometimes it just isnt right.

DortmunderKolsch (14) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2004
A mid range beer. Nothing fancy or special, but never a bad choice. A good full flavor, but still sharp and crisp when cold. Not my first choice, but I’d never be unhappy with one.
