Draft at brewpub. It looks like a normal beer. It pour yellow with No head. Doesn’t smell like much. It tastes fucking, fucking nasty. There’s a slight hop presence but mostly it’s like this green apple thing. Just fucking nasty. What kind of sick evil fucking mind wound foist this on people. Just fucking dire.

(draft at the brewery, 5/21/10). Light copper color, with light cloudiness. Small off white head. Aroma and flavor of acetaldehyde (green apple) that is overwhelming throughout this beer. They seemed to have this problem with all their in-house beers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
There are hops in this one, perhaps as noticeable as the hops in the ESB, but more citrusy in this beer. Still the malt profile isn’t as interesting and this beer ends up being the middle of the road in their sampler.
