Olympia

CIMG7116

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.

Stats:
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.
