Bottle: Deep golden to copper coloured, clear, smaller loose white head, malt and cooked vegetables in the nose, suppressed hops detectable; moderate bitter-sweet flavour and light to medium bodied; slightly lingering drier and hoppier finish with some fruitiness in the aftertaste. Not totally convincing…

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting thanks to Ansjelaah. Clear orange color, no head at all. Smell lightly malts maybe a touch of sweetness. Taste is hard to describe, cause there’s virtually no flavor at all. No idea what to say about this flavor wise.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. clear amber body with a small white head, quickly diminishing but with lasting lacing. starchy oat and rye bread and seedy malt and raw wort aroma with notes of DMS , corn, sulfur, dirty dishrag, dried peach and apricot esters and vegetable-stew American hops. medium-light body, light sweetness, medium bitterness. very sourish malt with a starchy and husky graininess and raw celery and cooked leafy greens. I don’t see how this sort of beer would be appealing to people.
