So this was poured blind tonight with some of my local tasting group. Now, I had already pallet-bombed everyone with IPAs (KRBC Just Outstanding, Surly Furious, and Bear Republic Racer 5) and DIPAs (KRBC Citra and Surly Abrasive), plus we had been drinking some homebrews. But this was surprisingly drinkable and altogether not that bad. Honestly drinking it blind I thought it was a mediocre American interpretation of a Belgian blonde. I detected a light blond color, a hint of bubblegum in the nose, and a fairly smooth, nondescript taste and finish, but nothing offensive or even unpleasant. I don't really see how this qualifies as an "amber lager" (in terms of either color or taste), but I'm not ashamed to admit I liked it for what it was. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it but I certainly wouldn't turn my nose down at it if I'm at a party. That all being said, I don't really know what market they are aiming for with this, other than people who might like the Shock Top/Blue Moon style of non-hoppy faux-craft but won't buy anything that doesn't come with a BMC label. Anyone else tried this (especially under blind circumstances) and care to weigh in?
