A: The pour is quite hazy and turbid, just like many of the Bruery’s other beers. The head is about a finger tall and white in color without great retention. S: Smells like hops more than anything. Lots of fresh grapefruit and some definite grass and straw qualities. There’s a touch of cooked corn in there and a mild sweetness. A big vegetal at points. T: A mild sweetness: nowhere near what I’m accustomed to with beers of the malt liquor variety. Decently citrusy with some of that grapefruit character. Grass and hints of light fruits. A mild bitterness from the hops. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation to it. D: This was actually not bad. Sort of like a sweeter and less awesome batch of Humulus lager (of one of the other humulus beers, perhaps).

bu11zeye (12717) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2011
(Growler) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of mustiness, grass, grain, some tropical fruit notes, and pine. Flavor of grain, herbs, grass, pine, and citrus with a dry, bitter finish.

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Draft… Lightly hazed, straw-colored lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is loaded with hops that are funky, earthy and musky as Hell – my overused, under-washed gym shirt comes to mind. I like it. What can I say? … I like my own flavor. Full-bodied and velvety with medium carbonation. Even at Florida-style room temperature, this brew nods toward the bitter side of balance – rindy, musky, pungent hops galore. The bitterness isn’t overwhelming, but the hops are so flavorful and the residual sugar is just not there, even when warm. The lengthy finish is bitter, grassy, and then quite dry.

First off, why can’t this be called a Malt Liquor? They say it’s 50% corn. STLWill shared a growler at The Royale last night- thanks again, Will! He was right- this crazy beer was, in fact, the main event. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a small white head. Big aroma of herbal, oily hops, lemon peel, plastic, fresh cut grass, corn, and straw. Flavor hits with hoppy, boozy bitterness immediately and has notes of corn, lemongrass, oily and herbal hops, and lemon peel. Light-medium bodied, with an oily, bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This is a wild one. Thanks to The Bruery for the Arrested Development reference and a crazy beer to match the invention of George Bluth.

bb (8539) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Draft. Straw colored beer with a big off-white head. Yeast and malt aroma with light corn. Sweet malt and yeast flavor with light spice. Medium bodied. Sweet malt lingers with spice and yeast.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 26, 2011
On tap. Pours with a hazed golden body with a huge white head. Aromas are super dank, pine, citrus, pineapple and papaya. Flavors are slightly earthy and grainy, pine, fruity and crisp. Lively bubbles and dry. Pretty much a double IPA skipping the normal yeast.

joeneugs (5751) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 7, 2011
On tap at Beer Revolution. It pours cloudy pale yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is very hoppy with lots of grapefruit and citrus with a touch of grassiness. The flavor is the same with some doughy pilsner malts throughout before a bready finish. I’m not a fan of this style, the doughy malts usually throw me, but this has such a huge hop presence it didn’t matter. Good one.

Clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Big grainy and hoppy aroma and taste with a big bitter bite.

JohnnyJ (5402) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Draft at the Bruery. slightly cloudy yellow pour, white head. Fruit, citrus, bready malt, and kind of grainy. Really easy to drink for the high abv. I wish I could get this for $2 a 40oz I would drink it a lot.

Growler courtesy of Sean, poured into my Narke tulip... The body is a very murky honey gold that has a neon tint to it, not liking it. The head is bright white, ok retention, not so on the lace... The aroma is very strong, you can almost see alcohol waifing up from the glass. Other notes of grassy flowers. Not bad at all. A hoppy citrus ipa... The taste is nice floral hops on the front, alcohol and hops in the middle, a lot of alcohol on the finish. Reminds me of a lesser dipa. Worth trying.
