JW Dundee's American Pale Ale

Highfalls Brewery

USA

Ick. Not very good at all. Has a weird chemical taste that's very off-putting, and the color's too anemic. I shoulda known this wouldn't taste great, just because of the price ($4.99 for a sixer). Maybe this might be good for someone just starting to branch out into better beers, because it's not very bold; on the other hand, it might just turn them away from the good stuff if they think it all tastes like this. Do yourself a favor and sink a couple extra bucks into something tastier than this. And tell your swill-drinkin' buddies that if they want to try a craft brew, this ain't the one.

Apparently I didn't think this was as bad as Sam did. Granted, I didn't finish it, but that's because I was manning the grill at the time, and I wanted to make sure my burgers weren't over or undercooked (a problem I've had in the past). I didn't notice any weird flavors, chemical or otherwise. Maybe they tinkered with the recipe, or Sam got a bad batch, or Sam's tastes are better than mine, or who the hell cares, really. It was good for me, and the burgers turned out great.
