UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 shared 500ml bottle. Pours with a clear rosy amber body and a decent head. Surprised that this is a decent lager, with way more malt than expected and a reasonable pomegranate addition. Slightly too sweet even though there’s some tartness and bitterness.

350 ml bottle from Ledgers in Berkeley, this beer is dumb. Mild fruitiness, some bread.

Big bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear reddish copper. Aroma is kinda pomegranate but not really. Weird fake fruit and some sugar water. Its like a jolly rancher with some dark stank. Taste os light bitter and light tart. Again with the fake fruit flavors. The bitter is very odd. Like dirt and leaves. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy yet flat carbonation and a longish finish. Overall, not good. Not totally awful but not very good either.

Finhead (1194) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2012
A hazy, reddish-gold pour with a soapy, pinkish white head. It has a fruity aroma with cherry and pomegranate. The light body has a watery texture with flat carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a quick finish. This doesn’t even taste like beer.

The things I do to tick... pours an ugly dirty white zin, with a touch of light tope head, looks terrible... smells like vomit and pomegranates, sweet finish, a touch skunky, I was thinking it would be horrendous, its merely bad... the taste presents the horrendous, its flat but over-carbonated, almost no flavor at first then some terrible generic juice and skunk... garbage

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Pours out with a pinkish hue with soapy bubble headmanship. Smells horrible with obvious fruit. Low carbonation and about medium weight. This brew is rather tasteless actually and what I do taste is quite offensive. It’s dry on the finish. Not a sweet beer.

There is something wrong w/ me. I see this beer w/ its hideous label featuring some sort of rooster in an Hawaiian shirt and I buy it. No good can come of this beer and I know it, yet here I am. It pours a vaguelly cloudy pink color w/ a small head and a few spots of lace. The pomegranite flavor is surprisingly subdued. I kind of expected an Kool-Aid-like artificial mess such as you see w/ macro fruit lagers in the United States. That pleasant surprise aside, this is actually just remarkably devoid of flavor in general. It smells and tastes basically of a below average Easter Eurpoean lager and is generally more watery and boring even than that. The pomegranite adds nothing at all except for color and overall I think this is one of the most flavorless beers I have ever drank in my life. It’s bad but it’s actually bad in a different way than I expected.

Bottle: Pours a light pink gold color with a thin fizzy white head. The nose is snappy with hops, husks and a light hint of fruit, berry or sweetness in the tail, can’t really tell. The flavor is sharp with a pilsner like bitterness and a very thin light malty body, not much in the pomegranate department, I’m wondering if that’s where the extra bitterness is coming from, but the yeast have consumed all the pomegranate flavor. Maybe the deluxe version has a little more to it?
