500 mL flip top, best before 10/06. Single bottle from Tower, Piedmont, Atlanta, GA, USA. Probably past its best. Honey, butterscotch pour but it has a weak, watery appearance and a very light mouthfeel. Sweet wheat in the nose and replicated in the taste. Mildly acidic (perhaps because of the beers' age) and slightly musty. The head is way too airy and light. A poor example of the style in my opinion. I wouldn't bother.

$2.99 Smyrna World of Beverage, Atlatna, GA, USA. 500 mL flip-top bottle broken out from the original four pack. Best Before 10/06 (this stuff did not shift well at SWoB). Pour is standard a golden color that looks a little paler than normal toward the bottom of the Sweetwater 420 Pilsner glass. Plenty of active carbonation, but a small and short lived head that ultimately leads to a very thin misty foam sitting atop the body. Sweet, malty aroma. Sweet taste with a very mild hop presence.

Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse
$2.99, Smyrna Beverage Warehouse, Smyrna, GA, USA. Encouraging burst when the flip-top is "flipped", despite the fact that I know this bottle is a little past its best date. This has been hanging around in this store for quite a while. The pour is horribly murky (fair enough for the style) but this goes beyond that and looks like a nasty Debbel crossed with pond water. Not good. Big carbonation, but it is very light and gassy. Mouthfeel is weak, and this beer is too thin for me all around....
$2.99 Smyrna Beverage Warehouse - also had the mixed four pack of Moosbacher beers for $10.99. Flip top bottle. Very ordinary. Light brown pour with a good head. The nose and tastes are mild caramel with a dry character cutting across the initial malt sweetness and the later bitterness. Finish dry and bitter. The dry character was quite pronounced I thought. Not much to report here, reminiscent of a very average English keg bitter. Drinkable, but also pretty forgettable.
