Half-liter bottle, $1.50 @ Binny’s Bolingbrook. Let us now tick off Armenia just because I found a bottle cheap. Let us also be politically incorrect by prying the cap with an Efes bottle opener. Yeek! Smell of skunk and piss in the green bottle. Doesn’t let up in the glass, but instead airs out some adjuncts. Still, a clear golden yellow with a tight white head. Well, what did I expect for the price. Taste is corn additives knocked back with bittering agents. Each swallow makes me worry about this stuff. I notice the label doesn’t go to the pretext of reprinting any medals from old beer festivals.
