3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at night off a million zillion speedways 2012 at obriens. Dark black pour, with a thin tan head. Wow this beer is strange, but I liked it. Cucumbers strongly in your face when you smell this beer. Super fresh cucumber, vegtable, refreshing, and very light herbal ginger. How did such a dark heavy beer turn into this? Interesting, and they accomplished their cucumber purpose. Could use a bit more ginger, which was faint.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at O’Brien’s for Night of a Million Zillion Speedways. Pours ink with minimal red foam. Very intense fresh cucumber nose, fresh cut, very sharp. Taste is fresh cucumber, spicy ginger, more and more cucumber piling on. For such an odd flavor, it stands out enormously in this one. It is herbal, refreshing, but added to the wrong style of beer. Successful experiment, but not a favorite of mine.
