Purchased at Reilly’s in Hilton Head, South Carolina, USA in a six pack. I wonder of this stuff makes it to HHI specifically to appeal to the large number of Ohio residents that seem to congregate here in the summer?
I would describe this is as an above average version of the style. Nice looking brown pour with quite a lot of carbonation. Despite the carbonation the head fades diappointingly quickly though, especially considering the amount of froth that is generated from the opening the bottle.
Malty nose as expected, but the first sip reveals a mouthfeel that is too thin for me. Not overtly so, but definitely a little lacking. The lack of body hurts this beer. Tastes are similarly malt based, but a lack of bitterness and a general insipid experience combine to make this somewhat forgettable – not unpleasant, but just another average beer that you could easily knock up in your basement if you were a proficient homebrewer. Ho hum.
