1.99/5  rDev -27.1%

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Three-finger white head with large bubbles rapidly eroding. Pilsner color, golden color beer. Nothing special.

S- Slightly spicy hop aroma. Pretty much all I'm getting from this. Like a pils.

T- Water with a few earthy hops dunked in. Tastes like watered down tea. Not bad tasting...but almost not tasting at all.

M- Water. Maybe a little bit thicker.

O- Mediocre is too high a score for this beer. Not bad tasting, but pretty much just water.

Had this Beer from the bottle. Six pack from Kroger's. Reviewing my second beer, put the first in the freezer and to cold to truly review.

Head- Poured into my favorite glass, used a little more force this time, first time i poured normally and barely had a head. With a harder pour I got a head about to fingers, which quickly died back down...

Appearance- Golden copper, with light carbonation.
Smell- Kinda sweet, not real hoppy
Feel smooth with a weird after taste
Overall- expected a better beer, Not a great pilsner by any mean, Doubt I'll but this beer again, Worth the try though

A: Slightly pale, golden hue and bubbly with a sudsy head and a tiny bit of lacing

S: Lots of grains; a a bit of butter, with some toasty bready malts and a hint of citrus and herbal hops--quite subdued

T: Some slight hop bitterness up front followed by grainy, toasted malts; some butter; it's okay but pretty simple and the buttery sweetness on the back end gets a bit wearing

F: Kind of sticky--too sticky actually; okay body

O: A pretty simple and boring beer; nothing too off putting but pretty bland all around

Another brew in the 6% ABV category, tried again at this dimly lit establishment, as you should check out my review on its nearest competitor, Bud BC.

I'm going to make this really brief and understandable - this beer tastes like Evian water with a slight hint of effervescence, as this brew lacks carbonation big time. Despite this characteristic flaw, I did enjoy the beer with Shrimps cocktail. A worthy one-time try (at least) - it is slightly better than Bud BC. Bon appetit!

Not too bad with my pizza on Friday night. Lately I have been doing a half and half on a lot of golden yellow beers with different dark beers. I halfed this with a Yuengling B&T and the result was fairly palatable and definitely affordable, $1.00 per bottle from the local grocery for each and for two bucks got the equivalent of an English pint and was fairly happy. Not good out of the bottle but poured it is a much better beer. I would be interested in halfing this with another dark beer, Guiness to start. I think the result would be decent and worth the effort. This is better than B*W* brewed in the same place
