I was surprised to not find this beer already listed on BA. There is an enrty for Before-After Dopplebock, which has the same label, but this one is marked as a Premium Lager and the ABV is listed as 4.7%. I'm not sure if this brew changes style from year to year, but anyhow...here it goes

16.9 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Beer appears a bright clear gold with minimal white head, zero lacing, and poor head retention

S: smell is incredibly mild with faint notes of corn, cereal grains, and not much else

T: the beer has a twangy grain profile up front with notes of corn and straw, there is a slight sourness. This is followed by a mild hop bitterness and a metallic character on the finish.

MF: light body, high spritzy carbonation

D: Well, this beer is pretty unexciting with little flavor or character to speak of. The beer goes down easily, but this is not a testament to the craft of the beer, rather its watered down quality. Aside from the funny label, this beer is worth passing up.
