Bev store run after seeing the bone cracker..If I've never seen something before I just have to try it..

Pours a really deep, clear amber with a whopping two inch beige head. Head dropped to one inch after about 10 minutes and left Lots-O-Lace.

Smells initially of hops..subsequent sniffs had a medicinal quality along with said hop aroma.

Taste was slightly bitter hops..can't call them citrusy or piney...I really can't describe them...Not too much else going on here..maybe a bit chemical/medicinal.

Fairly light bodied with lots of carbonation.

Looks a lot better than it drinks!

This beer was less than expected. At the pour I had thought i stumbled on a gem. Poured a dark mahogany with off white head. That's where the gem lost its luster. The smell was biscuit and banana. . .(strong banana). The initial mouth feel was quite pleasing but the finish was metallic. Struggling. To finish, maybe it needs to age longer, maybe the sink need a drink.... i may have it again, if given...won't be buying this again.(even though i did get it for $2.50).

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a pretty mahogany color with a 1 inch head. Smell is sweet, malty, some dark fruits. Taste is of malts, sweet, kind of mild compared to the smell, a little bit of alcohol is present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Picked this up on a whim, doesn't look great and the other beer I had by them was terrible.

decent head, creamy 1 finger head, decent lacing, somewhat hazy mahogany bit of light ruby coming through.

Nose some syrupy mess, straw and paper, corn syrup, molasses, little boozy, hint fruity.

Taste is meh but not terribly awful, syrupy corn syrup and molasses, paper, corrugated cardboard, corn stalk starchy, fairly sweet, apple fig and raisin like fruit, date too, light chewy biscuit. Hint of grassy earthy hops in there, slightly herbal, and some boozy flavors. Weird herbal sticky corn stalk earthy paper finish, hint metallic, sticky syrupy mess.

Mouth is med bodied syrupy and over carb.

Overall bleh. Poorly done beer, tastes like an adjunct beer that was oxidized and brewed mostly with corn syrup and straw.

"Thanks" to JLindros for sharing this beer. Poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Poured a deep garnet hue with browner notes with a half of finger of light mocha head that fades to leave slight lacing.

S - Aromas of mediocrity ...corn syrup, roasted malts, grains, and twinges of metal.

T - Taste is meh. Cardboard galore with corn and sweetness. Oh wow, do I detect bread and cardboard?

M - Mouthfeel isn't too bad with sharper and decent.

O - Overall this was uhh meh. Just mediocre. Really not worth the money.
