2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper color with a quick little off white head. Aroma is dirty water and dusty malt and not much else. Taste is more of the above with a slight bitterness in the finish and a raunchy aftertaste. Palate is watery and finishes dusty dry. It’s okay, but no reason to purchase again.
