2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear amber colour with a little carbonation.
Not a very pleasant aroma, almost like sewage.
Taste is a whole different world, whereas the aroma is obnoxious at best, the test is fresh, hoppy and nicely bitter.
Goes down smooth, thin bodied.
