2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slutfest 2013: Smells of clay, shitty. Clear tea colored, medium yellow head. Clay and grass flavor, still shitty. Disappointing. Some of these Barrel series are pretty good, but not this one.

Pours and looks like a stout, tastes like a pale. A bit watered down taste. Not my favorite.

Sampled at Slutfest 4 - Sexytime! Clear light brown with ring of offwhite head. Don’t really get the pale ale much, but it seems more porter than stout. Not sure what is going on here. It’s fairly drinkable though.

Pours a dark, cola-like color. No head and light carbonation. Little aroma, some hint of coffee. Initial taste comes off with a little not of hops but ends more malty. Very average beer that left no lasting impressing.
