1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slight hop and malt aroma. Medium modied, crisp, mildly bitter with solvent like chemical taste that lingers in mouth after swollowing. At 99 cents for a 22oz bottle, it gets the job done.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Distinctly catty with suggestions of lime. The hops have done something ugly -- hints of bathrooms youíd rather hold it and wait than visit. I wonít even ask him if heís thirsty -- my dog is not going to come close to this. Barring a teenage brewing experiment of mine using raisins and bread yeast, this may be the worst fermented beverage of any kind Iíve ever had. Though itís appearance doesnít itself warrant a 1 (itís a 2 and has a tin oily film over the top), as there isnít a black mushy cloud or worse, I can justify the one by contending other collective negatives drag the appearance score down to itís lowest possible level.
