2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap in Cleveland - Pours pale golden with a fair white head that stays around a while. Aroma is of light grains. Flavor is light grains and a touch of corn with a slight bitter finish. Palate is light watery and very BMC like.. Definitely the least flavorful brew on their list.

Rock Bottom "Greenfield" American Light (Milwaukee). Light gold, thin white head. Light grainy corn flavor. Light hop bitterness. Not too bad, but very tame American lager.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 The Rock Bottom set of reviews is a reflection of my hasty attempt to drink a small quantity of many beers and produce accurate and helpful reviews. Clearly Iíve failed, but I hope my incoherent and cryptic critiques can help at least a few folks who wander in and want to know what to order.
It takes a very loving and, to a degree, forgiving person to love a canine creature of such hideousness as adorns (blemishes?) the label of Rock Bottomís Lumpy Dog. It takes a similar character to love the beer after which itís named. The sickly, urine yellow color is off putting enough to worry even a hardened beer veteran, and the cookie cutter American lager odor reeks of prosaic commonality. The taste is on par with any pale lager, which collectively deserve to take a one way tour of our citiesí fine plumbing systems. There is an appealing but low key sea salt taste, but thatís no substitute for good flavor. This should technically be the first sample you have, it being the lightest of Rock Bottomís fare, but you may want to skip it altogether and leave it for the beer nebbishes at the table.

This draft brew from the brewery in Cinci poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized mostly diminishing white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and weak straw yellow in color. Its aroma was non-existent. Its mouth feel is initially tingly and crisp with a lingering tingly crisp palate. Its flavor contained crisp mild malt hop notes.

Samples at the Denver Location. Very light color with a thin lace and thin head. Aroma is of grassy hops, light pils malt and some wheat. Smooth flavor with a bit of hops and even some dms/cornlike flavors. Very easy drinking.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very mild, grainy malt aroma is vaguely sweet. Brilliantly clear gloden body with decent, fine bubbled head that recedes to ring with nice lacing. Mild grainy sweet flavour with a slight lemon-citrus herbal note and a whisper of hop bitterness. Light body with strong carbonation. Sampled on tap at Rock Bottom Denver with Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light grainy nose, yellow color, lathery head. Full sweet barley taste for a light beer, surprisingly so. Odd balance. Low bitter. Watery and thin. A crowd-pleaser for sure.
