2.1/5  rDev -18.3%

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear golden body with a white head that disappears immediately. No retention or lacing.

Aroma: Sour corn adjuncts or vegetables, faint sourness.

Taste: Harsh on the palate immediately. Slightly alcoholic opening despite the low ABV, followed by a metallic middle. Adjuncts come into play bringing notes of cabbage or other sour veggies. A tangy, sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated and thin.

Overall: I rate according to style, and I was not impressed with this one.

22oz bottle, got it for $3 on a whim. bottled in april so it's ~8mo old.

smell is corny grain, some sugar cookie dough. sweet and skunky. poured a little out to check the appearance, it's piss yellow with a bubbly froth that fades to a rim before your eyes.

starts light, clean, bitter, but sweet; ends with a slight metallic tinge and some other off flavors. amazingly, considering the style, there's noticeable hop flavor.

Good, but pricy for what it is.
