Genesee Cream Ale

12oz can, $0.65 at Green's on Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA - why not?? Complete clarity on the pour with a very light, high head that is short lived but leaves a small amount of decent lace. Golden color, light carbonation. Very clean and smooth - definite cream soda note to the beer, especially in the finish. Actually I really enjoyed this! Extremely surprising to me but the simplicity, non-skunked and clean edge to this beer was satisfying. I could go for a few of these in a baking hot ATL...

Dundee Wheat Beer

12 oz single from Beverage Resort, Kennesaw, GA, USA. $0.99. Purchased on a whim, this may be very old! 1787 R 09:07 4W dot matrixed on the neck of the bottle. A bit confused by this one, maybe this has already been retired, but it does not appear to be in the BA database. Adding for completeness. Huge head on the pour with a murky orange body. Head and lace are both excellent. Unfortunately that's where the good stuff ends. Slight, carbonated clove in the nose but this is followed by a...

Dundee Pale Bock Lager

Purchased as a 12oz single for $0.75 from the bargain trolley/cart at Arbor Place, Douglasville, GA, USA. Golden macro-lager colored body underneath a decent head. Head is short-lived but leaves impressive lace. Not bad looking at all. Aroma is a malty grain, but not very strong, distinguished or especially interesting. Tastes are simple. Balanced malts with some hop character and some sweetness. A creaminess to the mouthfeel, and also in the actual taste itself. Distinct and satisfying finish...

Dundee India Pale Ale

Snagged in the bargain bucket at Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA as a 12oz single for $0.75. Can't go wrong. Light copper colored body with a fairly large, but not very dense, creamy head. Some lace. Small bubbles persistently rising from the bottom of the Sweetwater Pils glass. Surprisingly malty nose with a little hop presence. Balanced IPA initially, but really shows its American side in the finish and aftertaste. Smooth and tempered up front, but then quite a metallic, grassy...

Dundee Festive Ale

Picked this up as a single 12 oz at Mac's Downtown, Atlanta, GA, USA. I've not seen this in Atlanta before (in any form) so I was pleased to be able to get hold of it. Nice looking clear amber pour with an impressive pillowy, ivory head, a spotty film on the surface and some good lacing. Nice looking. Some mild spice in the aroma, but much more pronounced in the taste. Dark holiday spice with some fruits, all supported by a solid malt backbone. Good bitterness in the finish. Smooth and sweet....

Dundee Pale Ale

Well, well, well - what a nice experience and a pleasant surprise. I was expecting little, but enjoyed this one very much. I was expecting a poor quality, nasty macro type, but got a pretty sophisticated brew, againast all expectations. A nice amber pour with a decent head and some lacing. The overall experience here is a mildly hoppy, clean and overwhelmingly dry experience. Very clean with no nasty stuff. This is NOT a great Pale Ale, but it is a very servicible day to day beer. Dry was...

JW Dundee’s Amber Lager

$5.99 Six Pack, Publix Supermarket, Villa Rica, Ga, USA. Another beer that falls into the, "When I want cheap domestic, I'd definitely pick this up instead of macro adjunct lager swill, but other than that it's very average and poor compared to literally thousands of real quality micro's and many macro's", category. Aroma and taste are very muted with weak maltiness being the order of the day. A nice looking pour with a decent head that does hang around and produce some, if not much, lacing....

Dundee Original Honey Brown Lager

Typically macro in a number of ways; head retention (zero), fizzy carbonation, light mouthfeel and body, Looks better than average with a nice amber color. The honey taste in is evidence upfront, although I would not necessarily be able to discern it as honey were it not on the label. It is definitely sweet though. Not a sickly sweet that makes it difficult to drink, but a kind of smooth sweet that aids the drinkability. Difficult to know if the malts are adding to the sweetness or if its the...
