look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.25

Serving: On tap in a bar game
Served: 17 August 2013

Appearance: Very pale yellow with no head to speak of unless agitated violently. Crystal clear and clean looking. This would get more points if it had a better color, but it almost looks sickly yellow, rather than something a little fuller bodied.

Smell: Is there a smell? This one just smells like "beer" not much else to say. No off smells to speak of, so that's good, but this nose is almost too squeaky clean- there's nothing going on here at all.

Taste: This beer was so cold, I almost got brain freeze. The bar I was at said their serving temp was below 32F. I can't imagine what this beer would taste like if it warmed up to a more reasonable temperature, but I can't imagine it would be good. All I tasted really was "cold", if you can imagine that in a bottle.

Mouthfeel: Nice a spritzy, good carbonation for a light lager style. Could be very refreshing in a hot environment such as a tailgate or ballgame.

Overall: This really is a terrible beer. Not much to say about this, because there isn't much too this beer. The appearance is bland and sickly at best, the nose is non-existent and the coldness of serving temperature way overpowers any possible flavor you might get out of this. The mouthfeel was somewhat redeeming, since it made the beer very spritzy- almost like a soda, though with a flavor as bland as this, I think I would have preferred to be drinking that!

The first thing I noticed, this beer smells like a doctors office. Kind of that weird super sterile alcohol smell that makes you think you'll get a super virus. it has a bitter taste with a slightly skunky aftertaste. At least is is pretty smooth so it does have that going for it.
