1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, malt syrup), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a note of diacetyl.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Medium body, syrupy/gooey texture, lively/soft carbonation.
Wow, just awful. Ridiculously sweet and goopy-syrupy with lots of diacetyl. Savagely underattenuated and raw/clumsy. The mouthfeel is horrible, it’s like drinking phlegm. I can’t believe this was acceptable enough to the brewery to actually sell.
