On Veterans Day 2017, I am delving into The Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody to see what is what in Whoville. This whatzis is from Subs & Six Packs here in Lancaster Co., PA. I do not hold out a lot of hope for this beer, though.

From the bottle: "Since 1857"; "The Finest Malted Barley & Hops".

I Pop!ped the cap & began another slow, gentle pour into the awaiting glass. Once decanted, an in-glass swirl raised two fingers of foamy, eggshell-white head with decent retention that left a surprising amount of lacing in its wake. Color was Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity, prompting The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus to do an about-face & come running back into my kitchen for a taste. Nose had a mild honey-like sweetness, indicative of a Lager, but there was nothing distinguishing about it. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was odd, not as sweet as the nose had led me to expect, but enough to make me wonder what sort of hops they used. There was a bitterness that was clearly hops-driven, but it was not the usual grassiness of Noble hops. It was not skunked, either. It was just ... odd. Finish was semi-dry, kind of unobtrusive & generally a ho-hum in total. I might drink it again if I were at an Indian restaurant where it was being served, but otherwise, it gets a pass in the future.

From Festival de las Naciones. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Age. Watery, without much taste nor aroma apart from a unpleasant grassy hops presence that instead of giving it some character spoil its flatness
