0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Sour vinegar aroma. Hazy chestnut with a gargantuan tan head... as in 4/5th of the glass large head.. as in I had to wait 10 minutes to taste the damn thing large head. Only to discover I had an infected bottle and will have to revisit this one at a later date. Sour lactic flavor, unpleasant.

this one was all over the place .. . pours a medium tan .. light foamers .. . why do women soccer players just not have tits? .. light brown bread, un sweetened maple syrup, and light nuts .. . light mouth, muddled finish - just average .. . . "Spin-off!" Is there any word more thrilling to the human soul?
