Got this one as a single while visiting Buffalo's Premier Liquor. Never seen it before, or even heard of it.
One of these cheesiest names I have come across in a beer.
Deep golden, with a head that started thin with fat bubbles, and ended up a thin, bubbly film.
Grassy grassy grassy. As intense a nose as I have encountered.
Grassy to the toungue as well, almost minty. But here is a weird, weird thing going on here as well. The website brags of a rare hop in this one. Was it the burnt-rubber-tasting hop, the rare new jersery tire fire hop? Really weird. Comes out in the nose as well.
Despite the weird taste, it is still oddly drinkable, maybe I miss the pollution of larger cities.

Why do I think a slightly hoppy Bud Light. Better than Coors but not by much. Very disappointed. I really would have been better off with a Bud Light or Coors and saved about five bucks! I would not recommend this beer at all. It's the first High Point I've tried and probably the last.
