Darklord -

My standing in line was for what they rated the #1 beer brewed in the US, and #3 brewed in the world.

I'll finally taste some in a few weeks when I celebrate my birthday.

Rasberry Brown

Style: Brown Ale, flavored
ABV: 5.0%
Color: never saw it outside the bottle
Price: 3.99
Rating: 3/10

Ok, this'll be short. This is a brown ale with "natural raspberry" flavoring.

I'll be honest, this beer is less than appealing. I thought it'd have a brown ale flavor with a hint of raspberry, but I unfortunately was incorrect. Rather, the raspberry flavor is so strong that it is almost sickening. It tastes like a carbonated, slightly bitter, raspberry iced tea. And after a while, it just tastes bad.

The after taste is where the chocolate malt taste comes in, but unfortunately, for the most part the good ale flavor that MIGHT be there is steamrolled by the raspberry flavor.

Not to mention I'm not entirely certain how "natural" this flavor is. Tastes pretty fake to me.

Steer clear of this one, if you're ever out in California.
