Southern Tier 422 Pale Wheat Ale (bottle)
Another new vid.
I ran into issues rating this one, just because of the philosophical question around whether I should rate for style or for personal taste. I've always been one to try to understand the brewer's intentions first and foremost, and I tried to be very fair to this beer as I am to all beers. It's a fine APWA, really, but it just isn't interesting to me and I'll never buy it again.
Is it fair to knock a beer just because I personally don't like it? I don't know -- if you were to only judge a beer based on style, Bud and Miller would be highly-rated beers, too, at least a seven or eight out of ten. I think on some level personal taste has to play a factor, and since here I've given my honest opinion, my conscience is clear.
My numerical rating: 5.0/10
