adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle in hotel room, picked up at a Hy-Vee in Lincoln, NE. Clear bottle = classy x10. A bit hazy, light brown appearance with a cream head. A bit nutty, light toffee, skunky, fairly shitty aroma. Pretty shitty, very very metallic, nutty, toffee, bland flavor. Each sip is like licking a 9v battery. Wowza.

Don’t put it in clear bottles dumbfucks. This one was fresh, but skunky and the base beer was nothing to get excited for.

I was sick/stuffed up, so it was hard to get a good sense of aroma and flavor... extremely carbonated...

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pour was a decent enough brownish hue, mixed with lighter notes.. like a sweeter iced tea. Small tan head that dissipates practically completely and does not lace. Aromas are fairly malty, caramel biscuity toasted malts shine through. Taste is similar, a little burnt in parts, but a malt profile matching the nose. Finishes a touch bitter with a bit of hops. I’d have to agree on putting think in the American Dark Lager category. Decent, but not really my thing.
