Oh dear. My best guess is that the Hilton Head Brewing Company has made a calculated decision that the production of a light lager is what the folks want, and that this has the potential to be a commercial success that exploits the ignorance of the masses.
This is utter garbage. The whole experience, from appearance through to aftertaste, combines all the charms and depth of Bud, Aspen Edge, Michelob Ultra and Spring Water. A real treat!
Pale, with lots of initial carbonation, the brew then rapidly resembles nothing more than frightened water. Zero character. I suppose one could say that this beer is at least fatihful to the style, but it’s a disaster zone for BA’s.
It’s a shame, because they make some decnt beer here, but why one would waste time actualy brewing something like this is beyond me. I know nothing about the brewing process, so perhaps this is an incredibly difficult style to produce and as such requires great skill. If it is a difficult skill to perfect, then it hides that fact well – this beer gives the impression that it could have been whipped up in your garage at home within 24 hours. Horrible, but I bet it sells well!
