3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, at Northwoods. Yes, it is a light amber. Malt shows a hint a caramel roast, and we start getting into more noticeable hops. A clean finish, more like a “red” ale.

Caramel malt on the nose. Not too much of anything but a nice malt profile that fits the style.

very interesting aroma. something about it feels synthetic. Maybe thats the crappy part the title speaks of? don’t mind the graphic design yet I think the fish could have more character. As a viewer I want more. I can’t help but feel this fish is as charmless as the title. I wish the label had invited me, the participant, to guzzle the labors of the quirky brewers. I can’t get this aroma out of my nose. Strange juxtaposition from the relatively muted taste. Perhaps that is the strategy of the brewer? To cloud and overwhelm the nose and sneak in the taste. Taste. I taste fruits, tart fruits. My girlfriend keeps saying this beer taste weird. .
