New Mexico

2.58/5  rDev -37.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Bottle with DBD that looks to be sometime in 2013, but mostly illegible.

A - Color is pretty run of the mill pale gold. There are some visible floaties of some nature. Not sure what they might be.

S - Floraly hops, some citrus, lemon, some malty/bready notes. However, immediately on sniffing this, there is a soapy note, musty almost. Somewhat off putting.

T - Hmmm... Bitter lead, some malty-ness, theres the hops, lots of lemon rind, But theres that damn soapy overtone again. It just grabs my palate and dominates the flavor...

M - High carb, but not overly so. Good coat, even if its aiding that soapiness mentioned before.

O - I hope I just got a bad bottle (6 pack...). Maybe its just me, however, I had another brew right before this one, which I thought was great. I will certainly give this another chance at some point. Maybe (hopefully) this bottle is an an anomaly and the others in the six pack will be saved. Although my hopes arent high on that. Underneath the soapy weirdness, there seems to be a good beer. If this is a good representation of the brew, this ones not for me. But, I'll try it again some time, given my suspicion that I've just got a bad bottle here.
