1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
draft. massive diacetyl infection with a lot of noticeable defects: aroma and flavor of butter / butterscotch, corn, burnt hair and a gamey / wet animal scent. oily texture with acidic solvent on the finish. goopy malt texture showing a lot of unfermentables. this a beer in such horrendous shape I have to assume the people here have no moral qualms charging money for an obviously faulty beer, or they simply lack the ability to identify diacetyl and dimethyl sulfide. probably a quick boil messed up the beer and then poor equipment management gave it that wonderful boiling-butter-in-a-pan smell and flavor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly hazy copper with a thin foamy head. Nose is funky fruity with like a biscuity pear tone and bitter grassiness. Taste is a little bitter and a little vegetal out of nowere, with a bunch of dry earthy biscuit. Too bitter overall.
