This was disgusting like a Werther's original....diacetyl BAD. Not an infection but a serious brewing mistake and one that I'm rating to warn others to stay away! I was afraid I might not be able to identify this flaw if I ever encountered it, but good Lord, I know what it tastes like now. Oh, and another slam for the nitro tap! Bah humbug!
