Hmmm, a beer brewed in Cigar City, using a Mr. Beer kit. Oh, and Ethan's first. Let's see...I guess I can thank Gary for going over to the brewery side, and filling a tasting glass.

A: Brown, no head or retention.

A: Hops and syrup.

T: Hops and syrup, with malt extract.

M: Medium body with no carbonation.

D and overall impression: Drinkability is huge for a brew made with a Mr. Beer kit. Overall, solid first try buddy. Lets try it on the new small batch system next time. Skal.

Ethan's first commercial brew. Made and sold prior to his 21st birthday, pretty cool to brew and release a beer before you can legally drink one.

Poured from the plastic tap of a Mr. Beer keg.

Brewed in a Mr. Beer vessel not according to instructions. Kicked up, and dry hopped.

A: Pours a nice rich deep amber hue, almost brown. A few bubbles, some hop particulate.... no retention or head.

S: Hops galore. American C hops, lots of citrus with a bold earthy greenness.

T: Hoppy for sure. Mild malt sweetness but mostly earthy green hops. Mild citric tones as well.

M: Rather light in carbonation (from the vessel duh) with a nice hoppy finish.

D: Actually pretty good. Who knew if you used a breweries worth of supplies on a Mr. Beer kit you can actually make it taste pretty good?
