look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75
A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2014. Acquired a little while back from a B&M store.
Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear golden-amber colour with good carbonation. Forms a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before reducing to a surface layer. Aroma of cooked grain with hints of DMS, faint yeast and a twinge of stewed leaves. Slightly sweet. Fairly clean but doesn't whet the appetite.
Tastes of watery, grainy malt with a mild finish. Notes of cooked grain, weak malt, yeast, mild DMS and stewed leaves/overdone veg. A faint bitterness upon swallowing, with a harsh, dry character. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with prickly carbonation and a thin, watery body. Slightly astringent, followed by an acrid aftertaste of stewed leaves, cardboard and grain.
Not particularly nice. It looks pretty good, however the aroma is a non-event and the flavour is weak and plagued by unpleasant off-notes. Average body for the style. Too much grain in the flavour - where is the crisp character and spicy noble hops that distinguish a quality lager? No need to hunt this down; spend your money on something good....

2.41/5 rDev -10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2
appearance: Not a bad looking beer butt too much of a weak straw color. Vigorous head
smell: Skunk like smell that is not appealing, Hints of alcohol and grain but not something to look forward to.
taste: Not as bad as the smell implies. Has less of a grainy flavor than one would suspect. Almost similar to a Bud, in fact about the same in dynamic of flavor. Somewhat sweet.
mouthfeel: Stays at the back of the palet where the hops come out. Seems like it rests there a little too long.
overall: when in Rome, stick with the wine. this is a great reason to have limochello instead of an after dinner brew when on the boot.
