Grey Lady

22 oz bottle courtesy of Tom (DrDogBeer) as part of Secret Santa 2009. Thanks.
Pour is a miserable looking, pale, insipid off-yellow cloudy (almost beige) affair that looks worryingly weak in terms of body, head, retention and lace.
The nose and tastes reflect the look, and frankly remind me of old dishwater. Both aspects of the beer are horribly washed out, almost as if one (or more) ingredients had been left out! The citrus and yeast elements seem as if they have been (literally) watered down. At first I suspected that this would all change once I swirled the yeast from the bottom of the bottle, and if act I ended up inverting the 2/3 full bottle several times to attempt to improve things. The change was minimal and beer beer remained washed-out in all aspects.
Watery and lacking any depth, the mouthfeel fails to redeem the disappointing tastes.
This was so poor that I was beginning to wonder if the beer had a perhaps gone through a problem in production where insufficient attention had been given to the bottle-conditioning. Without a batch number or date on the bottle, that’s obviously impossible to follow-up on.
Anyway, my experience here was awful, I hope that yours will be better.
