1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of wort, caramel, peach, unyeasted beer, draft. Sweet malty flavour, wort, grains, granny smith apples, some citric acid. Finish wort, draft, raw barley. A malty drink that’s almost, but not quite, entirely unlike beer.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
You know things are going to be bad when you smell a beer and the scent makes you think twice about putting said liquid in your mouth. Not in a confused way, but in a "get me the hell out of here" way. Appearance isn’t terrible, actually- nice tinted gold pour with decent foamy white head. Flavor isn’t as repulsing as the nose- which smelled of rotten Cheerios and dead flowers- but rather watery and flat with a little skunk. Palate was bubbly. Certainly one of the worst beers I’ve had, but I think distribution practices and poor treatment in store ruined this one much more than the quality of the liquid itself.
