COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are times when an ice-cold beer fits the bill. This is an easy-drinking brew that’s reliably tasty without being fussy. It’s a straightforward beer with good hop flavor without it being over the top. This speaks of a simpler time when you could order a beer, and they wouldn’t bring you a full menu. They’d just bring a good beer at a good price. Life can be complicated, but your beer does not have to be. Enjoy the taste of Simpler Times.

We all wish for simpler times, when Little Kings 40s were 99 cents, when delivering telephone books was a legitimate excuse for work. Simpler times... when a hangover meant watching Alf, back to back before back to back Cheers episodes... waiting for your employed pals to get off work so you can repeat the last night’s beer guzzling festivities. Yes, this beer reminds me of those simpler times. So does Ballantyne. If I were homeless (ultimate Simple Times), I’d panhandle outside Trader Joes and trade Joe my daily merits for these inconceivably awful cans of fortified bum juice. Like Leelee Sobieski below me notes, this is your stereotypical adjunct ale. Catering to a class that favors function over fashion.

12 oz. can Poured in a pint glass, yellow with short lived white head, Corn, grass and malt flavors. Light body and average carbonation. A bit of graininess in the middle and a mix of slight alcohol and hops in the finish. Reminds me of cheap Polish mocne lagers.

Canbthanks to macPoost. Poured into snifter. Light corn aroma. Pale gold. Minimal white head. Taste is inoffensive and bland. Mediocre at best.

Kind of dirty but not horribly so. Some elements of concrete grinded chewing gum and a little chemical smoke. Simpler Times indeed. Can.

Atom (2525) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2017
12oz can pours a pale golden with a large off white head. Big sweet cream corn malt aroma, light Belgian yeast. Sweet corn malt, infection. So gross...

bergstaden (3096) - Røros, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2017
Pale golden with white head - Malt aroma that has no hops at all - Flavourless malt body that lacks hop and lacks bitterness - This malt finish - This was just very boring

The only thing this beer has going for it is a 6%+ alcohol content. That’s all.

Can. Pours a clear yellow with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain and corn with a bit of hay underlying. Flavor is similar with corn and sweet grains throughout and a bit of hay backing.
