Pair With:
A friend joined me in my sampling of Indiana beers, and after I poured this golden beer from Mishawaka, she took a whiff and said, “It smells like a cheeseburger.” Not a good sign.

I then smelled it and detected something was off. It smelled a little lemony, but there was a definite odd malty smell.

Unfortunately, the tasting went downhill from there. I don’t know if it’s because this beer was unpasteurized or if it was just bad.

The biggest problem was that it tasted flat, although you could see the carbonation in the beer. It was watery and then had a harsh bitterness—and not a hoppy bitter, it was a purely bad bitter.

Needless to say, drinking this beer made me want a cheeseburger, just to cover up the foul taste in my mouth. On the Wall Street I know of, this one’s definitely a bear.
