Diacetyl and dry flowers/straw in the aroma, weak alcohol, taste is a weird grape juice and floral bitterness over light grain thing, still not much alcohol.

Big beige head. Clear deep dark red body with light carbonation.
Earthy dusty roasty aroma with fruity notes. Sweetish dusty
earthy perfumy taste with roasty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft
mouthfeel. Dryish roasty perfumy candy aftertaste with bitter

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Smells liek burger meat. The flavor is about at light and sweet as a beer gets. I don’t know what they do to get it like that but it is like soda.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Deep amber, clear, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing. Faint cardboard on the nose, dusty biscuitiness. Soft biscuit on the tongue. Falls off quickly, leaves a little nuttiness behind. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Soft nuttiness lingers. Not bad, but light and fairly boring. There is no zip to this one.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle served in a Newcastle NBA pint glass: Deep amber hue with a lovely off-white head and sticky almost nitro lacing... it went downhill from there. The aroma has notes stale caramel malts, soap, oxidized hop extract, and some minerals and wet burlap bags. The taste was not any better, dull and lifeless with a strange twang that is borderline infected. Where in the hell is the rye? A toothless creacher this is. UTTER GARBAGE!
