2.08/5 rDev -24.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2
Single bottle (no date I could interpret on bottle) poured into a shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Pale yellow - plenty of carbonation bubbling up through the beer. White foam (1/4" thick) on pouring quickly died down to leave just a thin non-complete foam across the top. No lacing noted.
Smell: Quite faint - grainy, maybe a hint of metallic and cider in there.
Taste: Not exactly bitter - but definitely not sweet with malt either. Earthy? Some metallic tastes in there (not strong) and sometimes some apple-like cider, but that cider is fleeting against the mild bitterness/metallic taste.
Mouthfeel: Plenty of carbonation on the tongue, maybe a tad on the watery side.
Drinkability: Maybe if I had this beer as a counter to a very spicy meal or something really flavorful I might enjoy it better, but otherwise I'm not liking it nor would I reach for another. Even yesterday having one alone after mowing the yard didn't exactly do anything for me. I won't say awful (I finished both beers) but I'm not impressed.
Serving type: bottle
