Very thin and no body. Like a glass of lightly malted water. Down the drain it goes. I need a home brew now.

What the eff!!! I love that beer. I've never had it in the can, but I can't imagine it being that much different than bottle.

Actually, in the nitro cans, it's a thing of beauty. I've been thinking about getting one since seeing the post above.

Another St. Louis gem from Schlafly.

That's what I was thinking. Guess I'll have to pick some up.

Well, to be fair I've only heard that from right coasters we have higher standards over here. I had my first one last year, and I considered it to be in no way better than say, a DFH90. One of them balanced IPAs, with good malt character but not the hops of an epic IPA.

I am a fan out of the bottle myself. I had to try these nitro cans when I seen them though. Makes for a very light beer in the mouth feel area.

Totally agree. Really good, but not nearly what some make it out to be. A comparison to 90 Min is a good one, malt forward, li'l to sticky and not nearly enough hops.


But I think this year, even the east coasters are a tad less than blown away by this beer. Still, if you want some, let me know. I'll give you my honest opinion after I try this year's.
