Backslope Sour Cherry Been Untrue 1.2  
Backslope Brewing Columbia Falls, Montana
pinkish color. some cherry but mostly horrible. just doesn't taste good at all.

Backslope Buxom J Ginger Beer 1.4  
Backslope Brewing Columbia Falls, Montana
I didn't like this at all. the ginger was just overpowering. certainly can look at this if you enjoy ginger beers but I didn't finish my sample on this one.

Coors Light 1.7  
Bottle in the UK, ABV is 4% Pale gold, frothy white head; decent Aroma of light malts, grain, getting a hint of pepper; meh Moderate carbonation and very watery; poor Not much flavour but getting light malts and grain. I would normally say its boring but an easy to drink lager. However the body is so light there is nothing moreish to sustain it as a session lager, half way through the bottle I craved water as I wished for the real thing.

Odd Side Ales Brut² 1.3  
Odd Side Ales Grand Haven, Michigan
silver can with white labeling. From Chalet in boardman, nice place. Pale yellow with a nice big foamy head. Very heavy in hop flavor. Bitter as all hell. Borders on double IPA territory. Strong, almost volatile on the olfactory. Nose is straight up hop flowers. This is one big ballsy brew. Smack you in the head, kick you in the teeth punch you in the nose. What else can be said? Long bitter dregs for a finish. Nasty nellie for a straight up lager lover.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (Bottle/Can) 0.7  
Absolutely disgusting. One of the worst beers I've ever tasted on 34 years. Tastes like water soap with a horrible metallic aftertaste.

Oettinger Alkoholfrei 0.8  
Oettinger Bier Gruppe Oettingen, Bavaria
Piwo jasne klarowne o żółtej barwie piana biała drobnopęcherzykowa szybko opada bez lacingu. W aromacie i smaku rozgotowane warzywa, kukurydza. Bardzo słabe piwo.

Charles Towne Telstar VII 1.3  
Charles Towne Fermentory Charleston, South Carolina
Very hazy golden, raw honey coloured body with a very thin, single centimetre tall tan head that fades fast to just about nothing. Aroma of honey, dry grain, grapefruit, resin, flowers, a bit of grassy bitterness and a lot of astringent alcohol notes - way stronger smelling than 8,2 per cent. Medium-bodied; Super strong alcohol notes and bitterness that show grainy malt, yeast, dry floral and hay flavours, a dash of very peppery, spicey hop notes that ends in a light kick of grapefruit, but the alcohol warmth and astringency is overpowering. Aftertaste is super pungent, with the dry grass and floral notes still around, but no sugars, no fruit, just pepper, light resin and a ton of super astringent and pungent hops and alcohol flavours. Overall, perhaps one of my least favourite Imperial-ish IPAs ever that at 8,2 per cent, barely qualifies for the style, but with no complexity and just a flavour/feel of a 10+ per center abv bite, this is just plain bad. Do not grab this one, unless you enjoy alcohol burning in the mouth. I sampled this sixteen ounce, pint-sized can, purchased from the Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 12-June-2020 for US$6,29 sampled at my house here in Washington on the best of all days - 04-July-2020, Independence Day, after watching the fireworks over our nation's capital at the end of my street with my wife and three kids.

Tamarack Montana Herb Spiced Saison 1.9  
Tamarack Brewing Company Lakeside, Montana
at the brewery, like the kolsch and apricot, this had a bit of a dirty water taste with some herbs thrown in. sage maybe. not good.

Tamarack Bear Bottom Blonde Kölsch Ale 1.5  
Tamarack Brewing Company Lakeside, Montana
this was the worst beer here that I tried definitely some dirty water flavor. that dominates anything else. bad.

Athena Beer Pilsen 1.9  
Small white frothy head. Fair lacing. Mostly diminishing. Dark-yellow clear body. Aroma: light bread, moderate yeasty. Initial flavor: light sweet. Final flavor: moderate sweet; short duration. Palate: light body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. 0,9s

Rhinegeist Oddjob 1.2  
Rhinegeist Brewery Cincinnati, Ohio
Ominous looking red can, signals danger. Yes, that's what odd jobs are, they look easy but most of the time they turn out to be main jobs. Fairly fruity mild hop aroma. eye of slight pale haze with a big foamy head that goes rocky. First taste is volatile hops. Yes, alarming olfactory as it goes down the throat. I think I feel a little bit of a warming sensation. Difficult mouth coating alky laced palate. Whew. This is a bombardier fer sher. Kick you in the head punch you in the teeth. Whew. Soooooo rude, sooooooo nasty; its terribly on style! What else can be said except prepare yerself. Over the top and down the side. One of the rudest IPA I've had for a great while. Interpretation for IPA lovers? It's great. It does what it's sposed to do, catch you a buzz and knock you for a high octane flavor loop.

Beck's Gold 0.7  
Difficile anche chiamarla birra; sembra davvero acqua sporca con leggere note di malto e luppolo.

Beck's Alkoholfrei (Non-Alcoholic) 1.3  
Birra senza alcol che assomiglia alle altre industriali basic. Forse un po’ più dolce ma che sa dare davvero poco. Meglio fredda così da coprire le note spiacevoli.

Beck's 1.4  
Giallo chiaro, molto limpida e poca schiuma. Aroma sull’amaro, poco gradevole. In bocca è inizialmente dolcina, ma poi emergono forti note di amaro. Davvero spiacevole e se non servita fredda poco bevibile.

Spilled Grain Good Intentions Imperial IPA 1.5  
Spilled Grain Brewhouse Annandale, Minnesota
Tap at Spilled Grain. This was an uncommon miss for this brewer. Tasted like it was quite old - stale hops. Malty, overly bitter. Not very good.
