|The Dreaded Green Bottle!!|
Look: Poured an dark amber orange with a half inch white head that faded slowly. The bubbles were small and the carbonation was abundant at first but later died down.
Smell: Definitely getting some kind of grape wine, and it is strong. Smells a little funky and fruity like prunes or figs. Lightly bitter as well. It's got a bit of that skunk going on.
Taste: Like a light malt liquor with raisins. It's not bad. Not gonna say that it's necessarily good either. It tastes different than I had expected, but still has that German flair about it. Reminds me of Rolling Rock for some reason, and I'm not really into that beer. I know I may be a funky guy, but there's only so much I can take sometimes.
Mouth: Feels a little filmy, bubbly. Medium body that goes down alright.
Overall: Aftertaste is like I drank some grape juice that had gone bad. It's not really unpleasant, but that doesn't make it any better. The bottom line is that the taste didn't agree with me. I wouldn't really recommend this.
