Uniquely embossed Buddha-bellied green-bottled lager becomes tiresome as Asian-influenced glutinous wheat-rice pastiness and musty malt souring falter. Dry-hopped astringency brings about dank dishwater soaping upsetting residual lemony tartness.
Wickedly inept 8% alcohol deviance can’t propel dismal corn syrupy clear-toned mess. Cloying honeyed maltose goo further undermined by astringent peppered hops.
Sweet rye-molasses confluence heightens burnt caramel malt sweetness as corn-husked wheat shard abets brisk hop spicing. Unobtrusive 7% alcohol flow, heavy for a lager, hidden by smooth sugary alleviation.
Abysmal funky-scented cloy-tasting malt liquor-like scum retains horrid corn oil astringency. Reprehensible.
Flogging malt liquor coarseness and sour malt nose merge to cloying Scotch signature worsened by cheap corn-sugared alcohol harshness. Oily hops don’t help.
After somewhat promising sweet malt salvo, pearly white-headed fluff depletes unassuming 7.8% alcohol burn for desolate mineral-grained tizzy. Abated oily hops dull herbal nuances consuming slick cloying finish that fails to reach full-bodied potential.
Skunked pale-malted phenol-hop bitterness settles up-front for highly carbolic moderate-bodied Ukrainian. Mild corn-husked barley-rice conflux lost to sour apple drear at drab finish. Harsh metallic aftertaste ensues.
Stench-y malt liquor-like 10% alcohol flow absorbs funky fruited malts and lively hop surge, but nice berry-melon hints drop off as miring corn starch nature and sourly metallic finish evolve.
Buttery Scotch malts and moderated roasted hop bittering engage brown-sugared chocolate-spiced cocoa bean undertones for heavily liquor-laden lager. Sweet corn and honeyed wheat provide backdrop. Just a tad acidic and harsh.
Opaque yellow tint, funky horsehide-fertilizer nose, and dry piney mouthfeel initiate covert 6.9% alcohol indulgence. Sugar malt caress, honey wheat passage, and carbolic citric hop mildness dent hard-watered texture on second passing.
Longer ‘lagered’ and more crystal malted than Rebel Pilsener, placing soft-grained wheat chaff above scant spiced hops to soapy mainstream finish. Strong alcohol pungency noticeable.
Crisp evenly-flavored clear-bodied Eastern Euro full of bitter hops and sour malts aiding roasted barley base. Cornmeal sweetness mellows boldly embittered malt liquor finish. Perfect with a whiskey shot.
