22 0z bomber , brewed in Saratoga Springs NY. Attractive label with a lovelly kingfisher ( of course) to the fore. A perfectly good looking lager, darker than American macros so its a light ,clear golden brew with a largish tight bubbly white head. The smell was not too attractive though, there are hops but there is an off putting "detergent" aroma., soapy. Fortunatlly no soap in the taste again its a rather pleasant lager well balanced and smooth, you can taste the hops and the malts ,with a small sign of the adjunt( corn syrup) taste of US macros. Nice smooth, full mouthfeel. Good easy drinking stuff. I used to drin this all the time in Atlanta in my fav Indian in Little Fives, I was impressed then, though Iím far from impressed NOW its still a good lager IMO

Pours yellow with a fizzy fully receding head. Very mild aroma is grassy hops,doesn’t smell skunked. Taste is sweet cereal grain, slight metallic note. Mouthfeel is thin-bodied with medium carbonation. Less skunky and more mellow than the average green bottle. There might be adjuncts in here, but at least they are well hidden.

Skunky. It had a think oily taste with a skunky smell. It looked good enough but as soon as I opened the bottle I was afraid that it would taste like it smelled.

There is a light grainy aroma. The color is a light golden and the head is small and rapidly disapears. The taste is slightly bitter and has a light short lasting aftertaste.

Bottle. Slightly sour malt and light hops aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sour malt flavor - slight hint of grape and a bit skunky. Donít really get any bitterness at all. Light body. Probably not bad with a nice hot curry but otherwise not one to go out of your way to try.

Crystal clear yellow pour with a quickly diminishing soapy head. Aroma is kinda skunky, but the flavor is sweet and malty. Better than I expected.

minimal aroma, slightly sweet with little to no bitterness. Pours well with a good head and nice colour. Another bland-o-rama beer

I was taken by the almost complete lack of an aroma. If you sniff very deeply you can detect a minimal amount of sweet malt but no hops to speak of. The appearance is golden with a medium head. The flavor is a little sour with an unpleasant grassy bitterness I presume is from hops. On the plus side you can taste the malt especially in the finish. Palate is above average for the style. Overall its not that great.
