look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Served in a chilled pint glass

Keep this short and sweet, like this beer.

Minimal aroma, a little honey, cut grass that's been rained on and sat around.

Taste is sweet, too sweet. Lack of flavor. Honey, grain, and a little salty in some instances

Rough beer. Carbonation minimal, flavor underwhelming, and just missing the mark

Only thing that saves this is high abv, which is inflated due to euro measuring standards.

cereal. sweet and floral and cereal. before I even sip it, I must say the abv HAS to be the best thing about this one.... no? IF you can get it down... from Bourbon County to THIS...? kind of like the state of our nation, no? could this be the Obama of the beer world?? I also want to state that I DID NOT capitalize his name above... damned democrat spell checker... barf beer, at its best. last beer of the evening for me. figured i'd get rid of the garbage.... and I know because I had the 'black' one a few weeks ago. took all I had to grab this one from the frig. and, being partly polish, I am utterly ashamed of their beer making prowess... this might have been a winner when I was 15 and pimping beer, but geez, this stuff is GARBAGE now that I understand what beer CAN taste like... blehhh. does that translate to a number? if you're reading this right now, you're too close!!! I mean, seriously, if you're reading this right now, you must have bought this crap like I did. i'm sorry. just remember, friends don't let friends drink $h*t beer... save the world... slap it out of their hands if you see them reach for it... aaahhhggg... barf. I believe I have sufficient legal grounds to sue Total Wine for selling me this.... put it back and move to another country...

look: 3.75 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 1.5

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, minerals, slight smoke, and pickle or cucumber aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and vegetal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is quite a poor beer with a really weird pickle-like smell and flavors that make this one a chore to drink.

1.75/5  rDev -34.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1

Poured from 500mL bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a crystal-clear body and a light effervescence. Head is a finger of quickly-dissipating white foam. Not too bad.

Smell: strongish aroma of wet grain and dank dampness. Not great.

Taste: sweet, dank dampness and a bit of alcohol bite. Kind of sickly tasting. Not good.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation. OK, but ... I don't really want to drink any more to judge the mouthfeel.

Overall: not among my favorite beers. I think this bad boy is going to be a drain pour.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Golden body, thick white head, sticky rings down the glass. Light, bready malt notes in the smell. Sweet grass. Taste mirrors the aroma character, coming across like a sweet cookie dough. Bitterness is faint, primarily making its presence at the finish. Medium mouthfeel, a bit sugary.

An okay brew. A bit on the sweet side for me, but not overpowering with its alcohol content (as far as flavor goes). I'd drink it again, but it probably just would not be my first choice if other options were available.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

500mL bottle. Pours a clear straw color with zero head. No lacing. Aroma is bready. Picking up on grains, sweetness, a bit of skunk, and honey. Really nice aroma. Taste is a sweet, grainy flavor with a honey aftertaste. Very little, if any, alcohol flavor. Nicely hidden for the higher ABV. This is a really tasty, easy drinking, high ABV beer. I like Black Boss Porter and I am digging this beer as well. A solid beer for under $2. Tough to beat that deal. Overall, looks like I will be stocking up on this one for the warm weather and the Black Boss Porter for the cold weather months.

The pour gives a light golden, straw colored brew. There is a quick one finger head of tight white bubbles, but it is gone quickly. The swill is translucent, with no sediment noted. Carbonation looks to be standard. The aroma is predominated by the grain bill. Malts and barely are detected, but adjuncts, specifically corn, are heavy and almost sour. There is a slight sweetness wafting off the surface, but this seems more attributable to the alcohol, curiously, rather than a fruit, or esters. As we sip, there is graininess up front. The corn is actually palpable, and quite dominant, as well. These flavors smooth out a bit through the middle, and the malts here taste somewhat of dried grass and straw. The finish is rounded out by bitterness of that same grain and some hollow malts. A sugary sweetness is the last thing that leaves the tongue, but it is briefly lived. The aftertaste breathes, again, with a bitter grassiness, grain, and slight sweetness. The body is light and the carbonation is medium to high, as it prickles the tongue ever so slightly. The feel is on the watery end, and the beer neither coats nor dries the mouth. The mouth is left feeling wet, but nothing else. The abv is stronger and only minutely noticed. The drinkability is fine.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was how there was nothing majorly offensive. Everything about it was kind of middle of the road for the style. Adjuncts were highly detectable in both the aroma and the taste, making this a bland choice.

3.18/5  rDev +18.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A pasty white fizzy head rises and fades semi quickly over clear tan pale orange color.

Nose brings some malts, extra and syrup aromas, a light grassy hop.

Taste of extract flavors, a light syrupy flavor, some malty flavors too, a light hoppy grassy flavor, little bitterness, some fruity lager flavors too. Finishes sticky and lingering syrupy extract and malt flavors.

Mouth is medium bodied and syrupy.

An OK drinkability, syrupy and sticky, some extract flavors take away a bit, and not as crisp and clean as a lager should be.
