Drop Top Amber

Never really been impressed with Widmer and this isn’t the beer that is going to change that feeling.
16oz pour, Taco Mac, Marietta, GA, USA. Appalling bad pour by the barman bringing me a flat beer with zero head. Not ideal, but I am forced to induce the head myself with a straw!
The beer looks incredibly carbonated for the style, and there is a multitude of bubbles rising around the light brown/amber body. Collar of foam is all that’s left of the head after a couple of minutes. No lace. looks drab and dead.
A neutral nose and a similar, if slightly sweet caramel based taste. 100% non-offensive, but also 100% forgettable and uninteresting. Body is way too light for me and the tastes are simply “blah” for me. Mild sweetness which I like in the style, but it all feels put together in an amateurish manner.
The kind of beer that I would hope that I could manage to brew myself in my basement without too much trouble. Just not very good.
