R Lager

22 oz bottle from Kenny Road Market, Columbus, OH, USA. $5.49. The label on the bottle is obviously amateurish which is probably a combination of deliberate style and cost consideration. Either way it looks like it was done by a freshman art class.
Pour is a little odd with a clouded butterscotch appearance that was mildly reminiscent of a Hefe or other wheat beer. Strange. Head was poorly retained though and the lace was watery.
Nose was a nice combination of sweet malts and some citrus based volatiles.
Tastes are quite frankly bland. The zesty nature of the nose is not transfered to the taste with any authority and there is a prickly mouthfeel that seems a little out of place. No offensive so the drinkability does not suffer too much, but this is the kind of beer that I could only appreciate if I was really dying for a beer. I thought it tasted like something I could make in my basement without too much difficulty. Again it seems “wheaty” to me.
Strange beer and unlikely to be visited again by me.
