2.98/5 rDev +18.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
Appearance: Pours very clear and pale with a slight orange hue to the golden. There was an active 1/4" head of white foam at first, but this was gone within about 30 seconds.
Aroma: Some sweet malt with a tad of toastiness in there to add some complexity. I only get a faint amount of hops in here as a floral contribution. There is a good bit of corn aroma here that actually adds a bit to the sweet impression as it warms.
Taste: The flavor has a pronounced sweetness as well. There is a bit of the vegetal tasting corn thing going on in the flavor as well. This dominates the flavor and it seems that there is only a tad of hops here to challenge the malt. The attenuation gives as much of an impression of dryness as the bittering hops. Slight buttery flavor that sits on the palate for a few minutes after the sip.
Opinion: This beer really isn't too bad when you put it beside so many others in this category. There is a malt flavor here...and yes I said flavor. Of course I like my beer with a bit more flavor, but this beer still isn't too bad, and I would drink it again if I had it to pick over any of the Budmilloors.

Honey straw color with a big bubbled head. Settles into frothy cap.
Corn and cooked veggies. Light sulfur creamed corn.
Creamed corn and cookies veggies. Slight tin note. Quite sweet.
Light and watery. Sweet on the palate. Perhaps a slight dry note in the finish but not very crisp.
Not very good. Not even crisp which is hard not to do for the style.

Tastes the same going in as it does going out. Avoid unless you're deeply (and delusionally) nostalgic. If you gotta go Pennsylvanian, then go Yuengling or Troegs or even Rolling Rock before you go here. Pitt has a lot of other things going for it: Warhol, Stellers, U Pitt, etc. The beer ain't one of those things.
