Another poor offering from Dundee. I got a variety pack and this is the worst of the lot. It tastes like nothing. Seriously, nothing. So if you're looking for lame cheap beer that tastes like nothing then this is the one for you!

It's got a nice head, that's got to count for something. The beer itself is a slightly copper colored ginger ale looking liquid. The head is a couple fingers of different sized white bubbles. Thick and fluffy, it's got powerhouse retention and killer lace.

I tried and tried and tried to pick up some sort of scent, but there isn't much there. I think I detected something cracker-like, but I can't be positive.

It tastes like what I imagine dirty water would taste like. It's possibly got some imitation Noble hop variety and maybe even some ginger, but it really does taste like what I think dirty water tastes like.

Has kind of a faux savory feel. Either that or it's just beer gone bad, can't really tell. It gives me a bit of a pucker in the finish which I why I thought ginger might be in it.

Pretty bad beer. Not easy to get down. Better off avoiding this one.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: yellow/brown more yellow on the spectrum.
Aroma of light malt.
Taste: not much here. light malt, slight hint of some hops.
Palate: very light mouthfeel.
Overall: depends on what you are looking for. Easy drinking beer better than your classic lager but not as good as many beers out there.

Golden and a little cloudy with a light head. Slight metallic smell and maybe a little malty. Slightly metallic and sweet with notes of coriander and a malty aftertaste. Lightly effervescent with a little bite. There's not a lot to this beer. Like the rest of the beers in the sampler pack, it's fairly uninteresting and has a slight metallic taste. It's drinkable but as satisfying as a good craft beer should be.

A: pours super light blonde, white head, small bubbles some lacing on glass, plenty of clarity

S: nose has sour grain smell, musty hops, and lemon. Something doesn't smell right...

T: taste matches the nose spot on, there is a weird grainy must that comes through with sharp hop character. Terrible balance.

MF: sharp, high carbonation, light body

O: not that great, not worth trying.. too many other better things available to settle with this.

Disagree with others who felt that this is a flavorful beer. For me, initial flavor is malty/biscuit with limited other flavors, although did note some clove finish. Not as much bitterness as I would have liked. Overall ho hum, would not buy again, but was not so bad that I couldn't finish it.
