Lynchburg Lager served @ 45* into a Dos Equis tulip pint glass, consumed on 5/15/12. No bottle date.

A- Fizzy one-finger white head with horrible retention. Dissipates to nothing instantly. Swirling gets nothing. Zero lacing. Brilliantly clarity, I would say it's probably filtered. Deep gold body.

S- Out the neck, it smells a lot like a macro adjunct lager. Once poured, more of the same. Grainy, maybe a little corn/DMS, some light solvent & estery notes. Smell is bland with nothing very appealing.

T- Not really looking forward to this. A little sweet, very thin & watery. Slight hop bitterness. Some light graininess. I think there might be some light notes of acetaldehyde. As it warms a small amount of toasty grains come out but it's too little too late.

M- Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

O- Maybe a small step up from BMC but not by much. This just makes me want a Brooklyn Lager really. It's been a really long time since I've had a PBR but that's kinda what it reminds me of.

No head, no lace. Yellow color and nearly clear.

It smells like wet cardboard and brewery floor. Not attractive.

Round, malty flavor. Nearly no hop which makes this slightly sweet. Thin bodied and highly carbonated. No aftertaste.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a dark golden color with a fizzy white head that leaves leaves so fast it doesn't even remember the definition of lacing.

Smell: Sweet and malty.

Taste: Very sweet and malty with a rum type flavor.

Overall: The beer is way too sweet and I really don't like the rum flavor.
