Bottle into pint glass.

A: Pale. Small head that dwindles quickly, no lacing.

S: Sweet malts. A hint of what malt I believe? Very slight hops, Euro pale odor?

T: Ever so slight Blonde flavor but what hits up front with an off Berliner Weisse flavor.

M: The only thing better than okay. Light body, bubbly a bit oily not to dry.

O: I may have got an older bier. If I try it again and its better I will revise. Not an undrinkable bier, but one better suited for hot summer sun instead of -22 polar vortex shit.

Appearance:
This beer came in a bottle. After pouring this beer into a clear glass, I noticed that it had a pale medium yellowish colour with a nice amount of carbonation and a two finger that disapated quickly. Very noticable lacing seen.

Aroma:
You can really smell the hops!

Palate:
Nice very subtle bitter/sweetness and definantly a light palate.

Flavour:
Undernotes slightly light in tone.... too bitter for my personal taste.

Overall:
This is ok but definatly very average.

A: Nice golden pour with little yeasty flakes flittering about.Thin wispy head.

S: Smells of light malts and floral hoppy notes with some sour scent.

T: First to the taste is a light hop and then some malty notes and a yeasty after taste probably from the flakes.

M: Medium body to full, almost no carbonation slightly acidic bite almost alkaline like when young and touched 9v battery to tongue...hmmmm

D: Dont care for it to much but could drink a few of them, when drank with some nice bitey chese... a sharp cheddar it was a bit better.

Got this in a single bottle.

A- A hazy golden yellow color, not really any head and no lacing throughout.

S- Smelled a bit like malts, not really any hops coming through, and a bit sour.

T- This killed it for me. It really tasted like tapwater with a beer accent to it. It was sour, slightly carbonated. I couldn't taste anything specific but tapwater. I was really letdown by this one.

M- A grimy feeling left from this one. Almost mineral like consistency with the tapwater feel to this.

D- I wouldn't drink more than one of these. If it was ice cold maybe better off.

I was really upset by this beer. Mad Anthony makes some good beers, this is not one of them. If you're going to try one avoid this because it will not leave a good impression with you.
