Bottle at Pat’s birthday tasting at Chriso’s. Clear amber colour with a tinge of orange. Nose is farmyard, lactic, sour cream. It’s a slightly sourish bitter lager with some sherberty sweetness, bit petro-chemically and some fruitiness and farmyard in the finish.

16oz can thanks to Travlr. Wish I could have spent some more time with this one. Seriously. Late to the tasting because of bullshit traffic so had to catch up fast as the tasting was moving forward. This was so memorable that I didnt write a thing down. But I remember asking Gene where it was from. Not a favorite as is about par for me and this style.

16oz can thanks to Travlr. Yes...the elusive Pakistan tick. So rare the Pakistanis have no idea that it even exists. Sort of like Osama bin Laden’s hideout. Appearance is flatter light yellow. Non existent head really. Nose is odd: caramel yellow apple, caramel softs, big sugar. A little headache inducing. Definite butterscotch candies. Weird. Moderate diacetyl like kettle corn. Taste is decent, lightly vegetal, very watery and neutral. Alcohol content is absent. Turnips, root vegetables. Watery, thin palate. Not sure what this is but I’m happy I got to try it. Thank you Gene!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sampled at the DC gathering at GT’s place. Tallboy can pours very clear pale yellow with ring of near clear whitish head. Weird perfumy notes on the aroma and flavor, noble hop (old and faded) on the finish. light buttery. moderately low carbonation. a little better than I had expected actually. but still nothing better than just a tick.

Aroma is heavy pilsner malt, perfume and floral hops, light butter and diacetyl with light DMS notes. Flavor is heavy malt, spicy hops, light diacetyl, and a sweet finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.
