A - Pours a pale, straw-yellow color with a finger of white head that dissipated to nothing in rather quick fashion. No lace on the side, but some surprisingly decent legs.

S - Smells kind of skunked, with some sulphuric notes as well. Wheat, grain, little bit of hops, cereal malts.

T - Tastes like skunky and sour malts, little bit of mineral, cereal malts, some soured honey, slight hop bitterness. Not very pleasant.

M - Lighter bodied, pretty active carbonation, this seems fine for the style.

O - Didn't like it for the style or for beer in general. Taste was bad, didn't care for it.

Bottle. Golden crystal clear straw color with a fluffy white 2 finger head. Very clean smelling in that there isn't any overpowering aromas that come from this at all. The faintest smells are those of light malts sweetness and a touch of hops presence. The taste is also very light. Slightly sweet upfront with a surprisingly semi-bitter aftertaste. Some floral notes. The aftertaste is bothersome to me.

A-pours a transparent golden yellow color with a creamy pure white head.

S-the nose has a hint of toasted biscuit up front, barley and wheat follow, grainy, light grassy hop and a touch of honey.

T-hint of toasted bready malt taken over by grainy wheat, grassy herbal hops and a touch of honey are light in the back with a lightly bitter finish.

M-light bodied, a little grainy, semi dry finish.

D-not a favorite style but some balance, pretty straight forward and done to the style. Quite grainy and that seems to dominate but there is some balance with light hop bitterness.

Thanks to Bobby for sharing this one.

A: The pour is a hazy pale golden color with a thin layer of white head on top.

S: The nose is very buttery, which I was not expecting, nor did I find pleasing. There is a touch of light malt with a mild yeast aroma.

T: The diacetyl is present, but not to the extent that it exists in the nose. There is a slight malty sweetness, and a moderate bitterness which provides a welcomed bit of balance.

M: Somewhat light in body, but it works with the rather light feeling of the beer overall. The carbonation is moderate.

D: This kind of "tastes like beer"--in the sense most non-beer drinkers would describe. Nothing really all that good about this beer, unfortunately.
