2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Q-Brick. Nose not bad, stone fruits, esters, caramel, bready malt, some diacetyl. Orange-brown color with lace. Strange astringent flavors, malt husks, burntness, strange esters, peaches. Needs a lot of work still.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Qbrick. Big stuffy yeasty nose, with some unidentifiable fruitiness. Cloudy deep straw-amber. Stale yeast in initial / dank, nasty bittering. Thin-medium body. Nothing really works so well in this beer.
