This brew was served on tap, into a Susquehanna Brewing Company pint glass, at the Holiday Inn’s Bistro in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. It showed a metallic yellow sheen, holding a two finger head of high and tight white foam. This left sheeted, slotted lacing to cover virtually the entire glass, following a medium retention. No haze or sediment was noted, while carbonation appeared to be active. The aroma gave notes of cooled skim milk, lemon skin, seed, and juice, powdery ale yeast, Styrofoam, unsalted cashew butter, cheap adjuncty pale malts, cereal grain, fermented and browned apple sugars, cardboard, white rice, raw popcorn kernels, soured white flour mash, tamari, clay, and anciently aged tobacco. Through the taste, we experienced wet cereal grain, raw eggplant and white onion, unsweetened Rice Krispie treats, wheaty dog food grit, burnt table pretzels, caramel corn, pork fat, lemon and lime rind, pale malt dust, hearty tinny yeastiness, light vodka booziness, cork, denim, and commercial white grape juice sugars. The body was on the lighter side of medium, with quickly fizzling higher carbonation to match. Slurp and smack off the lip were wet, thinned, and generally detracted from the experience, while cream or froth were essentially absent. The mouth was left cooled, prickled, zested, and thinly coated otherwise, but this quickly bled away into a chalky dryness. The abv was easy, and drinkability was only okay, despite the lightness.

Overall, it was clear that this was Susquehanna’s “BMC”, “for-the-masses” beverage. For the style, however, it drank much more thickly than most, and was, generally, more robust in flavoring. A robust flavor does not a better beer make. In this case, it actually makes it a bit harder to stomach, as the corn and metallic adjuncty bulkiness tend to overwhelm the drinker. This is not a phenomenal beer by any stretch of the word, but I think we can safely say that we would prefer it over the Miller Lite that is tapped right next to it, any day.
