12 oz. brown bottle to a small pilsner glass
pkg on 05/28/14
A: Clear straw yellow. minimal head and retention. Nice amount of carbonation. Minimal lace.
S: Grains. Corn? Malts. A veg. note maybe.
T: Crisp, malty with still a vegetal (sort of cabbage-like) taste. A bit of cracker underneath.
Unusual and maybe not in such a good way.
M: Good average carbonation. Light watery but still crisp body. Easy drinking. Not enough to save this beer from being below average.
O: Disappointing. Not bad but this sort of wtf taste catches you off guard. Unfortunately there's not much else I can discern in the flavor. The unusual and not altogether pleasant veggie sharpness dominates. Will not purchase again.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

DATE REVIEWED: July 6, 2014... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... OCCASION: 4th of July yardwork and party unwinding... APPEARANCE: pale, tawny, watered-down yellow body; white head sits with an appropriate pillowy arc, then settles out as a reasonable, albeit soapy ring; sporadic, tentacle lacing... AROMA: spritzy, light pale malts suggest pilsner; some bubblegum as well, but not much more in complexity... PALATE: medium-bodied, yet light in carbonation; a pleasant, lingering aftertaste; a good partner for post-mowing deck essence, a slightly uncomfortable mouthfeel... TASTE: a predictably clean, taut malt assertion; biscuity at the finish; hops are clean and balancing... OVERALLL: little distinguishes this beer from the myriads of pilsners within the genre, but that is a positive in some respects; as a fourth of a sampler, hopefully not the one to be rushed towards, but that will depend on the rest of the mix...for now, serviceable and palate-cleansing...
