This is actually the worst beer I can remember drinking in recent memory - it is also one of those wonderful moments that clarifies that life is subjective, and what one might hate, another might love. I get the sense there is a beer, here, that someone might really dig - it just isn't me.

Nice color, nice body for a pilsner - but the finish, a sort of burnt, ashy, cooking yeast bloom, is nigh-unmanageable. And it lingers, like the ghost of a different, also-bad beer, long dead. That said, I know some folk who live by this kind of bitterness, so you may dig this beer...I have four more to soldier through, in my fridge, and I am NOT happy about it.

12oz bottle, bottled on 1/12/12. Pours a clear yellow with a fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet corny malts and some metallic, floral noble hops.

The flavor is sweet grainy malts with some vegetal notes. There's a good amount of bitterness in the finish from the noble hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.

Overall, decent hops but very vegetal and sweet.

Aroma is a bit skunk and malt. Flavor's slightly more sweet than bitter, wet grain, not all that great Finish is on the sweet side and not in a good way.

Big white head slowly settles into a pretty solid lacing above a clear golden colored beer.

Light sour lemon with some light soapiness and very light darker spices.

Bitterness with peppered spices with just a little bit of the sour lemon coming through in the taste.

Light bodied with a light dry to almost a light bitter dry aftertaste.

Nothing really jumps out and says drink more of this beer, so I think I'll have to pass on buying any more of it.
