Presentation: 12 oz can with a few freshness codes that I was unable to decipher. Brewed by Plank Road Brewery on the label … a.k.a. Miller.
Appearance: Pale yellow with a medium sized bubble head that foams as quick as it dissipates to a thin, almost transparent lace. Clarity is crystal clear.
Smell: Boiled corn with a mildly acrid husk twang and strained malt sweetness in the aroma, grain and cereal grain to smell.
Taste: Moderate bodied with a lost carbonation from the rush during the pouring, most likely this beer is meant to be consumed out of the can. Faint crispness with a watered down malt mouth feel and flavour. Cereal grains leave a marked twang and the sweetness of the malt stays just below cloying. Hop bitterness is minimal and wrenched with the flavour being muted. Oddly the bitterness of the hops stays for a bit while it makes room for a light astringent grain to finish things up.
Notes: Hmm … one of the BIG “red” named beers. Funny thing is that it is not red in colour at all … not even close. You get what you pay for with this one, the taste reminds me of going out to clubs and drinking cheap beer and feeling like crap the next morning. You get the picture right?
