Had last night while out with the wife and some friends.
A- I had this in the bottle with no glass. Why is that? Well I asked for a glass and none came my way and I wanted some so...oh well. Average is what I'll give it because I've seen it many times over in other people's glasses.
S- Skunked and more skunked. Light sweet grain bill to this with some hop presence (earthy) this gets all covered up with a skunked Euro Lager style nose. It made me kind of not want to try it to be honest. But I did of course!
T- Some sweet upfront to the beer with light grainy flavors. This gets put in background with a light mild bitter hop flavor. Although, this even get s covered up with a ton of musty skunky flavor. I meant this takes over the palate along with a light hop bite. It's not bad but I know it shouldn't be there.
M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation was high but good for the beer. Light skunked flavor left on the palate and long into the aftertaste with a hint of hops and alcohol. Flavors were off balanced due to the skunked flavor. Not clean although overall it had a crisp hint to it. Light alcohol drying on the palate.
D- This beer was average in the drinkability. It wasn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Is it a great beer? Nope. Does it do it's job? For the most part. I would rather drink this than most offerings from BMC.
