It's like a cross between an iced tea and a Newcastle. I think he ended up fermenting it to about 2.5% ABV (1.030~ - 1.006) He gave me 5 gallons worth in bottles and I drink it exclusively on brew day as both a cautionary tale and a crutch to keep myself from getting stupid drunk when I shouldn't.
Cool story bro! that's frikkin hilarious

That's just what he told me. I don't know the recipe as I wasn't there when he brewed but it's definitely beer. Very low alcohol beer but beer nonetheless. Like I said it sort of has the character of an iced tea but it has a persistent head and everything you would associate with a properly fermented beverage.

And even though he ran the mill in the wrong direction I imagine he still cracked open enough malt to get SOME sugar.

Hey, if you're buyin I'm flyin.

That's a good point though. Just enough diastatic power to ferment but a bunch of starch. That must be how Buckler does it

Budweiser Black Crown-not too bad... after 5 session sized beers .Thats discipline. Noticing a sweet grainyness it has in general.The name seems fitting to taste as well, Golden amber lager-think about that one. Still has a spicey dry diety aftertaste,maybe they use aspartame. Kidding. Its O.K. to me. Think we all know the meaning of O.K though maybe. OK= its still beer going in my face not down the drain? Grainy-light caramel a bit sweet seems to be the theme of this beer though. After having this though?.. I kinda feel like Id rather have a budweiser. In fact now I think I want a super light beer,think I have a crappy pabst in the back of the fridge still. ONly cuz its my lightest beer I have I think.
