The beer pours a very clear yellow, like dehydrated piss and a big old white head on top that stays awhile and is fed constantly by a torrent of carbonation bubbles from the bottom of the glass. On the nose, the beer smells of slightly skunked grains, cereal and bread notes, with a little grassy and hay-like scent from the hops. The smell is clean except for the slight skunked notes. On the tongue the beer tastes sweetly biscuity with nice grass and hay notes. It shares some flavor characteristics with European pilsners. The beer begins with light hay notes and a little bit of funk, and then opens into sweet biscuit and hay notes and a slight skunk taste that sits below everything. The aftertaste is of light skunked malts and grassy hops. The mouth is left clean except for a slight lingering of the skunky/grassy taste in the mouth. The beer is thin and clean on the tongue, making the beer extra drinkable. Overall, this isn’t a terrible beer. It’s a little skunked, and definitely weak in flavor, but it’s not horribly flavored. A Jamaican pounding beer, I guess.

Stubby 11.2 ounce bottle.
A: Pours a clear straw yellow with a 1" thick white head which lingers and leaves semi-rings of lace.
N: Corny, grainy, malty and yeasty. Not too exciting.
T: A bit estery with very faint banana notes, yeasty and mildly sweetish malts.
M: Light body and medium carbonation. Semi-dry with a crisp and clean finish.
O: Easy to drink and it was refreshing on a warm afternoon.
