I picked this up at Whole Foods tonight while looking for something different or a beer I had bypassed in favor of fancy labels or styles. As WF had a lot of Harpoon on hand, the UFO became the 1st target.
I brought it home and popped the top for a pour into my favorite beer glass, a 50cl mug from Crate and Barrel. It poured quite well with a puffy head that settled slowly as I was fixing other things up. The first taste brought back memories of what the original Coors tasted like before the mass marketing screwed it up, but it flowed slightly heavier with distinct tastes of wheat, grains, citrus, and light hops.
The clean lines of taste after taste polished off the first bottle without much thought and I went to another bottle. I slowed down in round 2 to notice it reminded me of some American lagers on tap I had consumed a long time ago in college at fun parties.
I could see drinking this anytime as it was very accessible and it will make an excellent beer to serve to friends this Summer. Now all I need is to find this on draft...and it could be a worthy contender for my annual Halloween party.
