Newcastle Brown Ale 0.5  
John Smiths / The Brewery (Heineken UK) Tadcaster, North Yorkshire
I'm a New Castle Lover but i stuck it out when the changed it the first time as it was a slight change. But the garbage they're calling New Castle brewed in CA & IL is just straight SHIT! Lost a 20 year customer and I hope you lose market share in the U.S!

Newcastle Brown Ale 0.5  
John Smiths / The Brewery (Heineken UK) Tadcaster, North Yorkshire
Oh. How good this used to be. When production moved to Holland, the taste changed slightly. Now it is made in California and Chicago and tastes like garbage. Somehow, their new interpretation of an English brown ale is another IPA. Everything good about this is gone.

Pabst Blue Ribbon 1.9  
Pabst Brewing Company Los Angeles, California
A weak shadow of the great PBR that I had a keg of for my 18th birthday. Now it's just plain old adjunct World lager.

Krombacher Pils 0.5  
Krombacher Privatbrauerei Kreuztal Kreuztal-Krombach, North Rhine-Westphalia
Carbonation désagréable en bouche. Célèbre pour son faible prix mais ne le vaut même pas.

Southern Tier hazy brut IPA 1.4  
This beer is an embarrassment for southern tier. Dishwater color and not much better to drink. Thin and soapy.

Untitled Art / Drekker Raspberry Sour IPA 0.5  
Untitled Art Waunakee, Wisconsin
Hazy pinkish blush hue with a thin pinkish head. Nice slightly creamy raspberry nose with a very slight razzy fruity tartness. Smooth flavor that’s gently tart and a touch custard creamy vanilla-y with bright raspberry fleshy juiciness throughout. Tasty.

Biber Bier Blondes 1.7  
Biber Brauerei Euskirchen, North Rhine-Westphalia
500ml swing-top bottle, popped open after a walk around Stiperstones. Pours gold with a light mist, frothy white topping the recedes. Aroma is pissy vegetal sour lemonade. Taste seems to agree, continuing along similar lines, lots of sulphuric off-notes, sour.. poor yeast infection. Shouldn't be on sale really.

Makai Sour Cranapple Blonde 1.6  
Makai Brewing Company Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina
Sour apple nose. Cranberry comes across more in the flavor. Not intensely sour. Very cider-like. Clear straw yellow with no head. A bit of vinegar. I'll pass.

Warsteiner Premium Radler Zitrone 1.9  
Warsteiner Brauerei Warstein , North Rhine-Westphalia
Bottle from AH. Clear golden with minimal head. Candy aroma. Light with candy orange sweetness. Like an alcoholic soda. Niet zo goed. Gotta be a better radler out there - quest on

Unertl FitamInn 1.4  
Unertl Weissbier Haag, Bavaria
Es ist schön, dass eine Brauerei sein Bier mit heeimischen Rohstoffen herstellt und die Gesundheit der Trinker schonen will. Aber dieses Mischgetränk aus Apfelsaft und alkoholfreiem Bier brauche ich trotzdem nicht. Es ist ein komisches Irgendwas zwischen Malzbier und Apfelschorle. Absolut keine Empfehlung von mir.

Abbaye des Rocs La Montagnarde (Ambree) 1.4  
Brasserie de l'Abbaye des Rocs Montignies-sur-Roc, Belgium
Décevant. Aucun équilibre. Le goût d’une vieille cuve jamais nettoyée. Un arrière goût infect.

Amstel Light 1.7  
Heineken Nederland Zoeterwoude, Netherlands
The Aromas are pale malt, wet grain, stereotypical pale lager characteristics. Flavors are like nose, more sweet with a hint bitter and some carbonation to balance. Very little going on. Also very boring. This is another one of the beers that I've rated in the past and somehow ratebeer has canceled my former review.

Wolters Pilsener Premium 1.5  
Hofbrauhaus Wolters Braunschweig, Lower Saxony
16oz can. Pours a pale piss gold with a moderate, sudsy white head. Aroma is soggy biscuit, light honey, and floral hops. Taste is sweet; yeast, biscuit, citrus, light floral hops, and lots of minerals. Yeast lingers for days. Light body. Low, grainy carbonation. Watery mouthfeel [1.5/5]. Vile.

Coal Harbour / Doan’s Secret Track 1.7  
Coal Harbour Brewing Company Vancouver, British Columbia
473 ml can. This is horrible. Blackwater brown, bitter citric dirty taste, in cohesive, drainpour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
