2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle with Woodmanís generic label but with "Popcorn Lager, brewed with popcorn and butter" printed on neck ring . Color is the palest straw yellow Iíve ever seen and slightly hazy, with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is that of smoked shrimp, with a bit of lemon and floral hops, but no popcorn or butter. Taste is slightly bitter, with thin body and very lively carbonation. Easily drinkable, and much better than macro-lagers. The smoked shrimp flavor was a present surprise in this random grab from a huge grocery storeís M&M 6-pack shelves. If itís around Madison the next time I pass through, Iíll try this novelty lager again. Easily drinkable, obscure, and bizzarre.
The only mention of this that Google could find was this unfavorable review from someone who had a bad bottle:
