Can. Pours yellow, it’s beery. Not much that can be said, or should be said. Not like when Clint was drinking it back in the 70s. But then, not much is like the 70s anymore.

12oz can, thanks to b3shine. Date printed on the bottom of the can reads 1/07/13. Clear golden orange color, with some dark particles suspended in the body. Bigger off-white head. Good thin bit retains. Leaves plenty, thicker lace. Stale, musty, lightly skunky malt aroma. Lightly acidic chalky bite. Moderate bitter, light sour taste, moderate sweet. Definite awful acidic bite in the finish. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Texture and appearance aren’t too bad, but the taste and flavor is just way awful. I managed to finish this, though, so it’s got that going for it. A fair amount of effort on my part was required. I had a sandwich to help me with the process.

Smells like pabst. Looks like pabst. Tastes like pabst. Wait is that a hipster? Pretty sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can 24oz search for Bigfoot: Poured golden clear with huge two finger foamy white head. Aroma is sweet grass and straw. Taste is sweet grass, corn, grain and malt.

Best by 04MAR13 Pale gold glass with a solid stream of bubbles from the bottom. No foam. Smells of light hay, lemon, grain and a little bit of apple. Taste is clean and corny, with some grain and a little light white grape juice. The feeling is light, crisp and moderately highly carbonated with a wet finish. All and all I’m not particularly disappointed. Serving type: bottle 12-23-2012

Can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, pale gold with less than a half finger of white head. Aroma of corn and grains with a hint of some oddly dank malt. Taste is very lightly bitter. Grains with a bit of earthy hops. Full bodied with a surprisingly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a much longer than expected finish. Overall, not too shabby. Nothing to seek out but I’ll drink what I have.

Can. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy malts, faint sweetness, straw, and a touch of corny sweetness. Not awful.

Really bad even on tap at the Brewery in Washington.............................

bulldogops (2495) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
355ml Can, 4.8%. Clear golden yellow pour with a decent white head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is sweet, appley, malts, and a fairly potent hoppiness. Mouthfeel is bubbly, pleasant. Taste is layered with malty sweetness and a substantial hoppiness, but doesn’t finish dry or bitter... the sweetness lingers a little too long for my taste. Still unreal quality for a dollar beer.

Smells of lemongrass and biscuit. Taste like lemongrass. Like water on the palate. Nothing really to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
