This one had some poor ratings but they don’t really mean shit. Pours crystal clear yellow and little to no head that will stay around. Nose had just a touch of sulphury lager notes but other than that there is some very light floral noble hop aroma and some toasted malts. Flavor is some light toasted malts and very light floral hops. The finish is medium light sweetness and light bitterness. Overall it is pretty bland and will appeal to BMC drinkers but isn’t that bad at all. Seemingly quality fermentation. Good for what it is.

On tap at the Warsaw location. Yep, its a Pale Lager. Light in color, aromas, tastes and body. Some grass and corn.

Very thin offering from a local brewer whose other varieites offer a broad range of styles and flavors. Even at the tap at the brewpup of origin it fails to make an impression. Also offered bottled locally, but the bottled version is absolutely to be avoided - sours very quickly upon opening.

Bullit (4460) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 23, 2010
Draft @ Mad Anthony Old State Ale House, Elkhart. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of light lager malts. Flavour is lager malts, vergetables. A bit skunked. Slighly bitter finish.

A- Body is a very pale straw yellow color that has the slightest bit of translucency. An aggressive pour produces a head of one finger or so but this fades to a very thin collar pretty quickly. No lacing is left behind in the glass. S-The main scent is sweet pale malt. That’s pretty much all I am getting. T- Faded sweet pale malt flavors upfront with almost nothing to balance it out. The finish adds just a touch of soft pine and is very clean other than that. Nothing lingers on the palate. P-Medium to high carbonation and a light drinkable body-that is a hair thinner than I like. O- Not bad for a run of the mill blond lager. Very light and drinkable. Reminds me a lot of an all-malt lager rather than a BMC type though. Not bad. Would take this over BMC any day.

Pale yellow. Light flavor of straw and grass. Very light body which makes it easy to drink; however, not very flavorful.

Beer poured clear straw color with a thin white head. Beer has a malty corn flavor with some grassy notes. I don’t get much for hops or carbonation. Rather refreshing but not a complex beer at all.

Bours straw color with a nice white head. Smells of pepper, some dry malt. Tastes malty with a hint of citrus on the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2008 Even when very, very cold, this beer pours with an immense white head that takes a long time to settle. When you stack that atop a lemon-yellow body in which dusty particulate hangs, it’s not very inviting to the eye. (This observation is from my second tasting, while the first bottle was cellar-temp and similar in appearance.)

Have you heard the Jeff Foxworthy joke in which he makes comparisons on how men and women perceive smells differently? He basically goes on to comment that the worse something smells, the more appealing it is to the man... who will then shudder in disgust yet call a friend over to share in the experience. Well, when I poured the first bottle of this beer, I basically did this to my wife. ’’’’Oh my god... smell this.’’’’ Which she did and recoiled with a grimace. Then I said, ’’’’Go ahead, taste it’.’’’’ Which she again did before nearly decking me. I felt really bad about it and I apologized afterwards, but I needed to share this beer for two reasons. First: to validate my surprising disgust of this product from a brewer whom I had only heard good things about. Secondly: to save me from finishing the bottle alone.

Since I haven’t really written anything descriptive yet, let me simply offer a string of words: corn, feet, sour, DMS, phlegm, wheatgrass, cardboard, awful. This is actually worse than a lot of BMC products because at least those finish quickly and don’t hang onto your palate. This beer was exquisitely disappointing.
