Beer Info:
Descriptors: DMS Light-Struck Oxidized

Bottle Comments: Green bottle

Light struck, skunky aromas immediately dominate - catching wisps as I'm pouring the sample. Medium amount of grainy, Pils malt-like sweetness - light grape-like aromas - malt based, not esters. No hop aroma. Clean fermentation character. Very light nutty like character present, but quickly faded.
6 / 12

Pale golden with brilliant clarity. Pours with a moderate amount of bright white head that quickly retreats to the edge of the glass and persists.
3 / 3

Medium amount of grainy malt flavor that is hidden behind medium amounts of cooked corn, skunky, and a stale, honey-like sweetness. No hop flavor with a low hop bitterness. No fermentation character. Balance is slightly toward the malt.
10 / 20

Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Light creaminess. No astringency.
5 / 5

Overall a good example of the style - it suffers from poor storage and handling. Sample is oxidized and severely light-struck.
