On tap @sbwf13. Cloudy golden with white head. Aroma is discreet with sweet malt and caramel and some fruit. Taste is thorouhfully infected, watery and sour. I spoke to the brewmaster and he claims that there was nothing wrong with the beer....

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
7/3/13. 12oz bottle with big "thanks" to blomster. Shared this on a night that happened to be full of huge awful gems. Hazy golden pour with a soapy off-white head. Awful, awful aroma... vomit, oxidation, sour yogurt, and lemons. Sour lemon yogurt flavor as well, green apples, bile, and vomit. Just awful. Drain pour for sure.

Blir nästan lite upprörd. Surt skit. Vafan är nu detta? Är dom nöjda själva? Gjorde dom en batch, smakade, tänkte att: Det här blir bra!? Finns inget som är bra med den här ölen. Bedrövelse

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33 L bottle from a trade with Cunningham. Pours a shimmering pale gold with a low white top. A pretty nice smell of tangerine-scented hops and light honey-sweet malts. From now its going downwards. Watery palate, thin and fizzy. Taste is sour-acidic with some zesty fruit tones. Bone dry and sharp malty. Sour, light bitter ending. There’s appearantly some bugs in here, messing with the beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml Bottle - Golden with a foamy head. Lemon, malt, grain and a hint of tea in the aroma. Sour and tart taste with lemon, hops and malt detected. I wonder if it’s infected. It’s hard to tell with these boys. It’s certainly not an IPA, though.
