Default Mission St. Blonde Ale

I threw one of these in my mixed six pack at Trader Joe's because I liked the IPA they made.

I poured it into a glass and got a smell that was familiar, yet unrecognizable at the same time. I kept sniffing it, but couldn't put my finger on it, then it hit me.

This stuff smells like unfermented wort! You know, like your O.G. gravity sample before you pitch the yeast.

Seriously, that's what this stuff smells like. Has anyone else tried this? I'm wondering if anyone else thought the same thing.

I have some that I have yet to open. I'll toss a couple in the BeerFRIDGE and let you know what I taste.

Subtle is too confusing. Subtle only has it's place for aroma, flavor, and insult. Anyplace else, you lose. -GilaMinumBeer

Ginger, how long should I boil these crab legs for? I want them to fall off the bone just like Texas pork ribs. - Ace Club
