1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
355mL. Pour is a clear amber generating a massive, large bubbled, ice cream scoop, yellow head. Excellent retention. Lacing looks soapy and weak rather than sheety and full. Nose is really off- no infection but heavy trash and metals. Lots of old character- definitely past its prime. Taste is dishwater and soap to the max finishing with metals and heavy iron and copper. Really just disgusting. Drainpour.

Pours a cloudy brownish color with an off white head. Smells fairly malty. Has a slight hop aroma in there. Taste isn’t like a pale ale. Not horrible just not pale ale like.

On tap at Ram’s Head in Annapolis. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a bit of white head. Aroma is off, with some nasty cereal and old malt. Flavor has bitter malt and slightly soapy citrus. Finish is extremely bitter, but that helps hide the other (unpleasant) flavors.
