The seedy underbelly of the beerworld.

A burnt out neon light illuminates an unnatural orange bodied liquid. A drug-addled, artifical head forms in some places, but not in others. Bizarre and somewhat frightening.
The guttered breeze is heavy with chemicals unfit for human exposure. Sickly, sugary, sweet, soapy, sad.
Down the alleyway, a needle-scarred vagrant asks for a fix. Having no dope, I give him the next best thing: a cream soda. The entire scene is disgustingly and sickeningly sweet, with vanilla whores running amuck with disproportionally large corn enhancements, laying their advances on the underaged and underdeveloped malts.
The ramshackle houses are covered in chemical paint graffiti. The soapy attempts to remove these marks is also tasted as well as the chalky residue that remains.
I came to this part of town looking for hops, but found none. A shadowy character drives a rusted steel syringe into my back and injects some sort of powdery, sandy hop substitute. The world goes dark...

Upon awaking, I make it all stop as I pour the rest down the drain and into the dismal slop from whence it spawned.

This is God-forsaken land.
The worst I've seen.

12oz bottle shared courtesy of TomDecapolis.

Poured a medium and clear golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of corn, grains, and light citrus. Tastes of caramel and light citrus. Thin and watery body. Thanks Tom?

Poured a pale amber color with moderate white puffy head. Smell is minimal with a slight sweetness and a bit of hops. Taste is also minimal with little flavor to note. Mouthfeel is refreshing, but little else. An easy drinking beer that would be nice for a hot summer day.

This beer poured a clear lightish amber, with white uneven low density head that left absolutely no lacing at all.

Smell was typically lightly hoppy. Nothing special.

Taste was a little off, with a slightly medicinal/chemical taste to go along with the milds hops and even milder malt.

Save your money for better beer.

2.8/5  rDev +27.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured a crystaline orange/bronze. Attractive, yet eerie - too clear and unnatural. Aroma boasts of a spicy, assertive hops, but the flavor profile does not fulfill the promise. White bread toast in the malt, with hopping that tries to be fruity, but somehow falls short. A touch of metalic twang in the background, as if a penny is in the glass. Finish wavers to the watery side. Drinkable, but one that you don't give a second thought and move on.
