I’ve never had one of these before, so I thought this would be a good place to start on this little adjunct beer journey I’m about to begin. I’m planning on hosting a Beer Club for adjunct lagers, which they will be put into a NCAA style bracket. This is a classic beer from this area, originally brewed in Tumwater, WA (just south of Olympia). Now it’s brewed in California, which makes it’s old slogan, “It’s the Water” pretty ridiculous.
American Adjunct Lager. 4.8% ABV. Illinois (Brewed in California).
Pale yellow in color. The head was surprisingly nice, but mostly disappeared at this point.
Pretty typical aroma. Grainy malt with a hint of sweetness. Not terrible.
Highly carbonated. Light body. What did you expect?
Very, very light flavor. It makes Corona look like craft beer. Fairly dry but with a slight sugary flavor on the finish if that makes sense.
It doesn’t offend me, but it also has no redeeming qualities. 66 points.
