Massachusetts

1.8/5  rDev -18.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Presentation: 12 oz clear bottle with a gold foiled neck, “best before end” freshness date on the back label.

Appearance: Very pale yellow, one of the lightest coloured imports I have ever ran into. Decent head retention, sticks well to the glass and holds a two fingered head for a while.

Smell: Astringent grain in the aroma, light hop and a ghost like skunkiness. Odd smelling.

Taste: Saying it is light bodied is not even close. Malt flavour is minimal. Hops are annoying with a lightly brash bitterness. There seems to be an astringent grain flavour that plays tag team with the hops on your taste buds in a bad way. Thin in flavour with a watered down biscuity grain in the dry finish.

Notes: Why? There is no need for this, we have our own light beers to make fun of. This is damn near close to water … tap water at that. If I want light beer, not that I ever do, I’ll just stick to domestic light beer. Don’t waste your time on this one. Has a similarity to Amstel Light though the head is better in this beer.
