Thought I'd experiment with a 6-pack I'd never had while visiting Imperial Nebraska for a wedding. I picked up this beer at a liquor store in Sterling. What a dissapointment to say the least.
No real flavor or smell to note except bready and earthy bitterness. Seriously, as if a Budweiser was given more hops to the recipe. No pine, No hop resin finish making you smack your lips with a smile, NO citrus period and No dankness. Just bitterness... which is fine but you need something...ANYTHING to go with it.
I did pick up some Pale 31 that was on the shelf next to it (which I've had plenty of before) and thank god I did..
Waste of $10

A: Pours a lovely clear, amber with a significant head composed of large bubbles. A thin layer of head remains throughout the session and laces nicely.
S: One whiff discovers a sharp and ferrous aroma with a tinge of rock-candy sweetness.
T: A faint and subtle, malty sweetness is soon overcome by a sharp iron-oxide tartness that lingers, and curls the tongue, long after each sip.
M: Initially full to the point of thickness, each sip dissolves into a carbonated fizz.
O: Perhaps my sample is too old. I can't imagine that anyone would taste this and say, "Yeah, iron!" But that's what this thing tastes like: a semi-sweet, thick-n-fizzy, rusted, cast-iron, beer. This is why freshness labels are so important. I'm willing to give Breckenridge the benefit of the doubt and call this one over-ripe. I hope that is the case.... otherwise this beer is supremely sub-par.

Pours a copper color with a thin head that dissipates quickly.
Barely any hop aroma perceptible, mostly earthy/sweet malts in the nose.
Sweet caramel malts on the initial, then moving into a harsh bittering hop flavor midway through to the end. Aftertaste is all bitter.
With the poor head retention I was surprised to have as much carbonation in the mouth.
Below average drinkability, this beer lingers far too long on the pallate with astringent bitterness that is just not all that pleasant.
Overall, I don't see myself buying this beer again. Too bed I shelled out ten bucks for a sixer. Doh!
