1.4/5  rDev -36.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler.

Appearance: Pale straw yellow, thin white head - barest level of lacing noted.

Smell: Practically none, maybe a hint of grain.

Taste: At first nothing, then a bit of crispness following by a really bad sweet finish. It's like the hops were left out or were not dosed properly. The sweetness isn't even enjoyable...it's quite unpleasant like something else off has been mixed in there. I thought maybe it was the food I had with this (cheese and crackers) but drank some water and tried again. Nope - not good.

Mouthfeel: Watery, but not fizzy. Otherwise nothing special.

Overall / Drinkability: I could not finish this because of the taste. I'm not sure what they were thinking behind this one but this is not a good lager nor is it a good beer. Appearance is probably the only thing this beer has going for it. To the best of my knowledge, the first time I was unable to finish a beer to date. I don't like to be down on beer at all, but this one is poorly put together - at least to my tastebuds anyway.

1.51/5  rDev -32%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear golden body with tons of rising bubbles. The white head dissipates lightning fast. No lacing.

Aroma: Slightly sweet, kind of a glue-like aroma, some metallic notes.

Taste: Sweet up front. Boozy. A faint metallic and sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated, oddly sticky.

Overall: There's just something about this beer that is off. It's very malty, boozy, and metallic. Not sure what they were going for here. It wasn't refreshing at all.

Look, I may have just signed up on this site, but keep in mind that this was a beer that finally enticed me to review, and possibly because I finally got a smartphone. The 6.0% may sound enticing for the low cost, but don't be as dumb as I was, please. We work hard for our money, and we would be better off spending this money on something meaningful and more entertaining, perhaps a chinese finger trap... or a decent block of cheese from the grocery store (everyone loves cheese, yeah, even you, dude who says he doesn't like cheese.)
