1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
A: The pour on this beer is light orange-amber in color with a small white head.
S: Smells...strange. A strong aroma of menthol. There are certainly some bandaids mixed in there. A bit of grass and dry malt extract. Light popcorn to it as well as a touch of mint.
S: Tastes worse, somehow. Lots of green apple which gives a slight sourness, but not in a good way. Heavy on the popcorn with more bandaids and menthol. It tastes of wet paper or cardboard. Definitely a hint of rubber, too.
M: The body is light, very light, with medium carbonation.
O: I hate you Bobby. This was awful.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice light smell. Like wheat? Like an amber ale - "malty" with some hop? Certainly not that corny Bud aroma. Light amber color with a white head that went fast. Medium mouthfeel. Starts very nice (almost like a light amber ale), then gets a burst of sweetness, followed by a complex of unfamiliar flavors. The finish seems fairly balanced with hop, dominated by a strange flavor that must be the sorghum. Makes me think of Mongozo. Better than Bud any time.

Bottle from Wild Oats, Cincy. Poured dark clear amber with a large off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate balanced malt and hop aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced flavor with a bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is better than my expectations.
