ChadPolenz (1788) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 2A International Pale Lager

AROMA: Sweet grainy malt with slight lemony scent. Clean fermentation profile. Appears to be slightly oxidized. More neutral than bad smelling. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Crystal clear gold; very effervescent. Large white froth with tight bubbles. Decent lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: Moderate amount of grainy sweet blonde/pale malt. Low graham cracker/bready flaovr as well. Quite sweet for the style, though this is probably due to the age of the can as whatever hop character it may have had seems to have faded. There is slight spicy sensation in the background; otherwise bitterness is very low. Lemony sherry taste on the finish. No DMS, diacetyl or acetaldehyde. 14/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium-high CO2 at first but becomes a bit dull after a short time. Aftertaste is fairly clean, but the beer is not refreshing per se. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: For a generic pale lager this is actually pretty good and very drinkable. Can seems to be rather old, but it has endured well. Not sure why AC/DC didnt opt for an Australian-style brew, though. 6/10

24oz can at the July DC tasting. Poured a dark ruby brown/cola color with a small off-white, very pale tan colored head. Bready. Light malts. Cardboard. Falls totally flat. Why didnt they make an Imperal Stout and call it "Back in Black"?

solidfunk (8637) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Actually ok for a lager. Pours golden with ok head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Not as good as the Iron Maiden beer though. Tall can.
