this beer had a strong taste much like a rusty nail. and not the good kind with scotch and drambuie. very strong metallic taste overwhelmed the hops. maybe it was just this batch but even though the price was right I think it was my first and last case.

Not a bad Brew

A. Who cares if I want Art I will go to an Art Gallery.

S. Who cares if I want a Nice Smell I will buy Cologne.

T. Nice taste not too hoppy, not to malty. Medium Bodied. Slightly Bitter aftertaste.

M. Nice mouth feel, not too bitter not too hoppy. Nice aftertaste. Would buy this Beer again.

O. Great Everyday Beer. $18.00 for a mixed case. Same price as Miller Lite or Budweiser.

10 out of 10 for Value.

Nice Beer for a hot summers day.

3.1/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Cloudy amber pour with effervescence noted. Sticky white head that retains well.

Aroma: Mild earthy hop notes up front. Low fruity esters. Clean fermentation character. A little biscuit aroma as it is agitated.

Flavor: Earthy hop bitterness up front. Followed by moderate biscuit and bread crust-like character. Balance is toward bitter but there is more than enough malt character to balance. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. No astringency or alcohol heat.

Overall impression: More like an amber. A good beer, just not an IPA.

look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Smell: a little like a skunky near-beer. Maybe St. Pauly Girl. That's it - it smells like St. Pauly Girl after too many days in the sun.

Taste: glue from the back of a postage stamp.

So, pretty much what you'd expect from Costco brand beer. I don't care how cheap it is, you have to have standards, people.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a nice amber copper color with a big cream colored head. The head has a decent level of retention fading over time to leave a good level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The smell is bready and caramel sweet with a nice blend of a grapefruit citrus hop and some lighter notes of a floral smells.

Taste – The taste is upfront bready with a light caramel sweetness with a decent amount of grapefruit hop flavors. As the taste advances further there are flavors of a pine hop come to the tongue with a loss of much of the sweeter flavors. The grapefruit hop flavors get stronger as the taste advances to the end where a moderately hoppy, bitter, and dry flavor are left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thickness suits the hop flavors quite well while the medium carbonation is nice for complementing the more crispness of the brew.

Overall – Not too bad, but a little too much of the a bitter grapefruit is left to linger on the tongue at the end of the taste leaving a somewhat unbalanced taste. Not bad and for ~ 75 cents for the bottle this is definitely a good deal.
