1.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Tap at Pratt St Alehouse. Pours a clear, deep tea amber. Rockier white head. Soapy lacing. Funky nose- some sweat and strange chemicals. Not really a good funkiness. Taste is odd: cardboard, sickly sweet cherries,
chemicals. Becomes worse and worse with heavy butyric acid, sharp bile. Hot, chemical finish down the throat. Probably the worst tasting beer I have ever experienced in my life, unfortunately the aroma is decent, so I cannot score this a 0.5.

Served on cask at Max’s. Pours a clear copper color with no head. Aroma of caramel, grapes and a faint lactic note. The taste is earth, grapes, caramel, herbal notes and a very faint tartness. Medium bodied. Good, but doesn’t deliver as promised with the sourness.
