1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On Draft at the brewery with TheDude. Brown pour with almost no semblance of a head. Tons of chemicals, alcohol, and weird yeast in the aroma. Smells strongly of bad fruit. Flavor is sweet, cloyingly so, with odd yeast notes. Thin bodied, watery texture, tons of alcohol in the finish. There were so many wrongs going on in this beer.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft. Murky brown with a quickly-dying off-white head. Yeast, metal and paint aroma on top of higher alcohols / fusels and rotting dark fruit (plum, cherries, apples). Potato starch texture with a strongly sweet and acidity yeasty off-brand cola flavor. Alcoholic and dirty and wort-like with lingering bacteria, yeast sludge and rotting apples and pear fruitiness. Thin, watery body. Gag-inducing.
