COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pub Brew. Thirst Mutilator is a light straw-blonde lager with sharp doughy yeast esters that gather atop a perfectly retained head. Kilned barley produces perfect bready and flour-like qualities that blend pleasantly with the beer’s mild hop bitterness. Aided by a wonderful effervescence, these delicate flavors fade into a crisp clean refreshing finish.

Bottle to pint. Looks good; a hazy pineapple with white head. Smells bready with notes of lager yeast and light esters. Tastes like it smells with some pleasant hop notes that makes the flavor much more balanced. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Solid beer that smells better than it tastes.

(Identified as a Helles style lager on the bottle) Bready/doughy aroma to start with, and it pours a mostly clear light straw with a full white head. Malt forward, with dough and bread flavors starting it off, then fading to a nice crisp bitterness. This is a nice, light drinking, flavorful lager.

Pours a slightly hazy light peach color with an off-white head. Nose is light, mostly bread and cereal, some hints of citrus. Medium to light body, nice smooth mouthfeel, Medium carbonation, slightly sweet biscuit. Very nice, really does remind me of a Munich helles.

12 oz bottle...a slightly cloudy straw yellow color and pure white head. Taste is a blend of sourdough bread and lemons. Very refreshing and finishes with a spicy bite. Well done.

Onslow (1220) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle, part of a Shorts sampler. Hazy yellow brew with thick creamy (and fore ever lasting) head. Aroma is grain, bread, lemon, a little grass. Taste is a nice slightly sweet malt at the start with a modest lemon/grass finish. Lingering sweetness and a bit of ethanol at the end of the swallow. Very enjoyable.

ahh, idiocracy - a fine movie. out of the 12 oz bottle, straw and sourdough notes dominate, a golden hazy liquid with light carbonation and little head. more dough and toast in the body and some nice floral hops to keep things in check. nicely balanced but leaning towards a little alcohol heat, lacking a crispness that many pilsners have - perhaps from just a touch too much sweetness? a pretty decent brew regardless.

Hazy golden orange color. Grains and some light lemon citrus in the aroma. Taste of grains, grassiness and lemon.

12oz bottle, huge thanks to umich03jm. Wow, instant points for the label. One of the most fantastic I have ever seen. It is literally a My Little Pony with chainsaw arms. The blurb on the label -- "It’s not just light, it’s extremely electro-light!" Love that. Combined with the name of the beer, this whole thing is a clear reference to the cult classic film "Idiocracy", which is much appreciated. Date on the neck of the bottle is 10/13/14. Almost an entirely hazy golden orange color. White head nearly fills the head space of the shaker pint, slowly reduces to a good thin amount, that retains and leaves good splotches and dots of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of fluffy full texture. Crisp, light to moderate bright tingly carbonation. Lightly slick texture. Fantastic big citrusy aroma, get some strawberry, some nice saaz hop pepperiness, much appreciated. Super complex interesting aroma for a lager, tons of interesting fruit nuances in there, which lend to the refreshing aspect of it. Yeah, it’s bigger ABV and bodied than expected for something advertised as "extremely light", but it’s as refreshing as anyone could hope for, especially with that complex, bright flavor. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light bitter, and a light tanginess. A bit more bitter than your typical helles, but it works and I dig it. Indeed, super-refreshing, especially towards the end. Bigger body, but tons of bright flavor to back it up. Wonderful take on a helles. And possibly the best label ever... Definitely keeping this bottle.
