Thought I'd experiment with a 6-pack I'd never had while visiting Imperial Nebraska for a wedding. I picked up this beer at a liquor store in Sterling. What a dissapointment to say the least.

No real flavor or smell to note except bready and earthy bitterness. Seriously, as if a Budweiser was given more hops to the recipe. No pine, No hop resin finish making you smack your lips with a smile, NO citrus period and No dankness. Just bitterness... which is fine but you need something...ANYTHING to go with it.

I did pick up some Pale 31 that was on the shelf next to it (which I've had plenty of before) and thank god I did..

Waste of $10

A: Pours a lovely clear, amber with a significant head composed of large bubbles. A thin layer of head remains throughout the session and laces nicely.

S: One whiff discovers a sharp and ferrous aroma with a tinge of rock-candy sweetness.

T: A faint and subtle, malty sweetness is soon overcome by a sharp iron-oxide tartness that lingers, and curls the tongue, long after each sip.

M: Initially full to the point of thickness, each sip dissolves into a carbonated fizz.

O: Perhaps my sample is too old. I can't imagine that anyone would taste this and say, "Yeah, iron!" But that's what this thing tastes like: a semi-sweet, thick-n-fizzy, rusted, cast-iron, beer. This is why freshness labels are so important. I'm willing to give Breckenridge the benefit of the doubt and call this one over-ripe. I hope that is the case.... otherwise this beer is supremely sub-par.
