bottle into nonic

A: very clear, thin bodied appearance, pillow of large bubbled head (offwhite) brownish amber color

S: a bit cidery, maybe a touch of mint

T: cidery quality comes through in the taste, slightly metallic, sweet with a hint of bitterness in the finish

M: light to medium body, no carbonation bite

O: look elsewhere for your beer. This one is not very good. There is no defined malt or hops, just meh.

Golden-amber color, clear. Moderate carbonation rising up. Small frothy head that disappear really quick, leaves a fairly nice lacing behind.

Mostly sweet malts, there some funky sourness.

Sweet malts, candy-like caramel, buttery. There's sourness towards the finish. Body is light, a little dryness in the aftertaste, medium carbonation.

A - A finger of slightly off white head - slight brown. Foam sticks around for a bit. The body is clear and a nice amber color. Not a bad looking beer.

S - Mostly just lager yeast. Some wood, slight orange/lemon citrus, and a little Corona funk.

T - Get it out. Gym sock, some bitter malts, and very vegital.

M - There is something that makes my tongue tingle a little, but not in a good way. It's like the beer is trying to kill my taste buds so I can't tell how bad it is. Otherwise, good carbonation which holds up a weaker body.

O - I can't believe I used to drink this stuff. Well, not Fischer's specifically, but I'm sure if I would have tried this five years ago I would have told you that's how beer should taste. No it's not. I was just looking for a flip-top bottle.

Poured from a bit above a glass gives this beer a big white head that dies into a thin off white lacing above a clear honey copper colored beer.

A lightly roasted grain malt aroma without much else if anything else coming through.

A light roasted caramel malt taste with almost a slightly burnt quality.

The light caramel taste follows through in a light dry aftertaste on this medium bodied beer.

For a light caramel malt taste I do believe there are about 5000 beers that would better qualify, yet I have only had maybe a hundred of them. I guess I better do some work.

Served in a free McDonald's Coca-Cola glass. ;)

Has a really nice copper penny color. Not terribly vigorous pour yields a solid head with good retention that leaves pretty nice lacing. Aroma is all right, some malt, some light hops but nothing very special. At worst it could be called slightly chemical. Flavor is not overpowering in any way. Hops and malt have a pretty nice balance with a finish that isn't at all objectionable.

Overall a good beer that is very drinkable. It isn't going to wow anybody but I'd drink it if it was put in front of me again.

When I opened the bottle got a nice aroma. Nice smooth taste and nice even taste on my palet. I would recommend this to any beer drinker.

I received a 30 beer from around the world from my mom. So far so good and I will definetly rate all of them as I drink them.
