A very sour beer. Just about undrinkable.

Never could find a smooth drinking light beer. Most were too crisp, or flavorless. When I drink regular beer, I become full and uncomfortable; especially if I'm drinking more than one. Being alumni of Ohio University in Athens, I very seldom drink one beer. Recently, I purchased 12 pack of cans of Hudy Delight. Was unavailable for many years, now has been put back in production. I brought the beer home and got the cans ice cold in cooler full of ice cubes. I was surprised at how smooth and drinkable it was. The key is make cans ice cold. Tried some out of fridge and tasted much different. It is less expensive than big brands and has become my new favorite beer. May be difficult to find outside Metro Cincinnati area. My local beer store is now ordering for me. Most of the time I leave a little in bottom of can when drinking beer, but I've noticed when I drink Hudy Delight my cans are completely empty. Remember get them ice cold in cooler and enjoy a Hudepohl, I think you will be surprised.

This poured with the clearest of pale yellow complexion but the mass of bubbles that clung to the glass blocked the visibility. The head was a huge mass of tiny bursting bubbles that grew out of control.

The nose is a sour malt, kind of metallic, with a light corn and breadiness.

The flavor is sour, metallic, corny, piney hop maybe.

The feel is prickly and brash with so much carbonation.

I simply couldn't even entertain myself with this and had to eventually pour it out.

For a light beer, this is the way to go. Light in color, mild aroma, and mild taste; high carbonation. A really good beer for someone that may not like the complexity of craft styles, it is very easy to knock a few back without getting "too far gone." A staple beer in our house for an after dinner or summer drink- you can't beat this light beer for the price.
