In nearly 35 years of drinking, this by far and away one of the worst drinks I’ve ever come across. I joined this site to specifcally warn people of this noxious brew whose taste is a combination of earwax and grapefruit The pint I bought was in The Cross Keys, Covent Garden last night - I managed two mouthfuls before feeling uncontrollably sick which only a bad pint of Directors managed 30 years ago.

imdownthepub (10224) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Cross Keys, Covent Garden, London. Hazed gold with white head. The beer was fairly opaque, but there was a hoppy fruity aroma that promised much. The actual flavour didn’t quite live up to this, but there was a bitter sweet element, some tropical fruits, orange and a herby note. A pretty decent beer but not totally convinced with the condition.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Keg @ The Duke Of Wellington beer festival. As ’Sas-squash’. The pour’s deep golden with a tight creamy white head. Lovely looking. The smell is strong sweet passion fruit and mango. I swear I could smell this as it was being poured. Some additional notes of aromatic cheddar cheese and grassy funk. The taste is funky dank weed, soggy grass spiked with nimble orchard fruits. Apricot and strawberry preserve. Bracingly bitter finish. Still, very smooth and easy drinking. Nice fine carbonation. Overall, quite impressive.
