650ml bottle. It seems that the Rhinelander 'brewing' company is starting to change its main line of marketing offerings from "Bad Hare" to "Lazy Mutt", which conflicts with its contract brewer's (Minhas) brand. So I still don't get it.
This beer pours a hazy medium golden yellow colour, with two pudgy fingers of puffy, laid-back foamy off-white head, which leaves little beyond a few island specs of microbial lace around the glass at it readily recedes.
It smells most prominently of sassy lemonade and limeade fruitiness - tart and sweet at the same time - a bready, grainy pale maltiness, and a mildly acrid, well understated plain-ass alcohol edginess. The taste is middling, touched in the head lemon and lime 'fruitiness', a hollow grainy malt, with more than a hint of corn syrup, and little else beyond a basic drying earthy 'hoppiness'.
The bubbles are bristling, but not really up for a fight, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth in an off-set free environment, the overall sugary essence the key here. It finishes off-dry, the nature of the guest ingredient leaning more to its acidic side, which unfortunately allows the basic blandness of the base malt to 'shine' through.
I can't really front on this particular contracted offering, as the expected underlying unpleasantness is well obfuscated by the guest fresh lemon additive - the acidity co-opting any inherent weaknesses in the malt. Hard to make a call between this and a sixer of Rickard's Shandy for bottom of the barrel accolades, but I have to begrudgingly go with this one - less overall volume and such.
