Poured from bottle into a pint glass
(bottled on day 204 of 2013 = July 23, 2013)
Appearance – The beer pours a crystal clear golden straw color with a tiny white head. The fizzy head fades almost instantly, leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is overall sweet with a moderately strong aroma of corn syrup and a very light caramel. Along with these smells are some grainy and bready smells with just a hint of a citrus smell. Overall rather cloying in aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather sweet corn syrup flavor as well as some lighter bready flavors. The sweetness of corn syrup grows even stronger as the taste moves on with some lighter grain flavors joining the taste as well. A little bit of hay and earth join the flavor at the end leaving a rather overly sweet flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thicker side for a lager of 5.2 % abv. with a carbonation level that is rather average. A thinner body and higher carbonation would have been better for the brew, hiding some of the more cloying flavors and making it an easier and more refreshing drinker.
Overall – This is certainly not a beer I would recommend. Very cloying and rather unbalanced in flavors and feel. Most adjusts are far superior to this with a much lower cost and actually a better taste. I will likely not come back to this brew.
