1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Yellow and clear. Large head of frothiness. Looks like the surf being washed up on a beach. Lightly acidic aroma with some hints of corn and that sort of thing. The flavor follows suit, but there is quite a note of honey. Finishes off sort of offensive. I’m not sure I can get through the entire bottle... but I’m a trooper!
