1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Gold color with a fizzy white head and lively carbonation. Very sweet citrusy aroma. Grassy as well. Honey almost. Eh... flavor is a sour, grassy mess. Too bitter and rough on the palate to be worth making a session of.

Grassy, wet sock aroma over a sweet pils base; rather flavorless and slightly sour; harmless, yet quite unappealing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Draft: Typical mild and fresh pils-sort of malt with medium to low hop bitterness but still noticeable. Somewhere between a helles with too much coarseness and astringency to the malt, and a German-style pils that’s underhopped.
Bottle: Smells and tastes like wet grains and sour, moldy hay. Completely unappetizing, and this was a cold draft pour at a McCormick’s Fish House. Horrible, horrible beer - I at least expected it to be somewhat refreshing and flavorless.

This was the first time I actually regretted that i wasn’t drinking a bud light. Piss yellow, no taste outside of the dredges of America’s "Rocky Refreshment". Too watery, poor carbonation

Had this beer at a local bar on tap. At least they served it to me in a cool glass, otherwise it would have been a complete waste of my $4 for this junk.

Piss yellow with a film of white head. Slightly lightstruck, grainy aroma. Mellow grainy flavors with a tinger of bitter and floral hop character, this character particularly noticable in the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and watery.

"Wifebeater" seems to be drink of choice amongst English pub-goers. Over-carbonated, fairly tasteless. Standard keg lager stuff. Have noticed that bottles of belgian origin tasted slightly better

on tap-pours a thin white head. Color is clear yellow. Aroma mild grain. Taste is grain and a Corona like ingredient, but better. Good carbonation. A good lager, which they tend to be middle of the road.

Poured a pale yellow color with a white head. Malty doughy aroma. Malty flavor with a raw dough tartness. Not really a lager fan but not a bad beer.

It sucks to live in Oklahoma. Just played at a brunch, and the manager knows I’m a big beer geek. When we were on a break, he says "Boy do I have a surprise for you. We got a new beer from Belgium." He then pours it in a wine glass. I thought it was a joke. Slightly darker than my drummer’s Bud Light, but nothing worth taking seriously.
