COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle. I’m going to steal my husband’s descriptor and say that it is black tea color plus a big white head. Smells tinny and lemony and grainy. Kind of watery with a little carbonation. Sweet up front, then kind of watery and grainy. Not my thing.

Bottle---the pour finished with a large head. The color is a pale brown with lacing around the edge of the beer. Aroma was malt, caramel and sugar. The taste was the same with some candy like toffee, slight bitter taste in the finish. OK beer but it needs to get everything together to improve. Bruisin Ales 4.50

Bomber. Clear, bight red color with a small white head. Touch of yeast and grain on the nose. Only a bit more malt sweetness than a pale lager and a similarly short finish. Not bad, but boring and not worth going back to.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Dark red with a good head. Malty-sweet aroma. Hints of brown sugar, but not much else. Mild, with a thin body and no aftertaste. Looks good, but not really interesting.

Draft at balloon fest. Just confirmed that I don’t like lagers. Couldnt wait to drink an IPA to get the after taste out.

Sweet aroma and dirty yellow pour with a strong malt backbone and lingering mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle poured a tea colored brew with a large head. Medium bodied with aromas and flavors of malt, butter, and tin can, with a barely noticable hop finish.

Tried during a paddle taster and was glad that I only had 2 oz. of this beer! Not a favorite or a second taster.

Tasted at twin city taps. So so beer. They did hit a ruby colored lager but missed the taste it is just an unbalanced mess.
