Cotteridge Convention III – May 2017 - Bottle share at the damp marquee tasting. As Dark Horse Lambeak Wants Blood Orange. Huge thanks to Leighton for the opportunity to try this bucketlist ’top 50 worst beers ever’ beer. Pours a cloudy dark two-tone orange with no head. Smell gets you from a distance. All balsamic vinegar, highly vinegary, some blood orange if you’re searching amongst the vinegar. Not bad in all fairness – just like balsamic. But also doesn’t fill you with confidence. It is difficult to focus on the body as the taste is highly distracting. It is brutally vinegary – more acetic acid than any vinegar I’ve had. Burns all the way down, killing the cells of your oesophagus as it goes. I would be interested to know a) the % acetic acid in this and b) the pH. Virtually undrinkable, so it had to get a minimum score possible from me. (1-1-1-1-1=0.5) MrTipple (6952) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
I am glad I was given only a very small pour as anything more may indeed have provoked an allergic reaction or just outright vomit. Intense balsamic vinegar, maybe you could interpret some acidic lemon in there, would imagine Mr Duck toilet cleaner smelling similar, murky brown colour, more vinegar, strong acidity. Utter rubbish, would suggest to use this as floor cleaner but then again, it might ruin your floor. Bottle shared at Leighton’s - thanks to Leighton!

Bottle shared at CWC III, thanks to Leighton, cheers. Amber beer with small head. Aroma of conkers in vinegar. Taste is balsamic vinegar, not the good stuff. Nearly as bad as Fosters. RichTheVillan (8443) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle at CWC III; murky brown pour which only slightly suggests the evil contained within this glass, eye burning acidity, the tiny sip was balsamic vinegar, with a backbone of malt vinegar, it has cider vinegar in the finish, this beer makes me angry, how did it ever leave the brewery. I’d give it less than 0.5 if I could. Mr_Pink_152 (5753) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Tried at the Cotteridge 3 pre tasting. really not good this beer. murky brown colour, malt vinegar aroma. pretty much undrinkable.

Tap at the Cotteridge Convention III 2017, poured a hazy medium brown with little life. The aroma is pure malt vinegar. The flavour is strong sour with a pure acidic vinegar palate. Truly awful. WingmanWillis (430) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Bottle shared at Cotts Convention with thanks to L Dawg. Pours murky red brown with a little white head. Aroma is vinegar and a hint of fruit. Taste is pure vinegar. Can feel it burn as it goes down. Sweet fucken Jesus that is awful. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2015
Bottle at Chris and Ruth, Eater Tasting 150404. Vinegar. And some other quite terrible things. cgarvieuk (26365) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2015
Bottle at chrisO... Light hazy pink amber.. Massive balsamic... Big fruits.. Smelling it nearly kills you... Sharp tart.. Massive vinegar... Might be a great base for a chill sauce... Fascinating tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle: Thanks, Scot. Flat pour, oily amber color with a faint haze. Smells like paint thinner. Holy fucken shit. Acetone. Heavy nail polish remover. Almost giving me a headache. Acidic as hell on the nose. Goddamn. Enamel stripping acidity with each sip. I’m guessing a pH somewhere close to battery acid. It’s like drinking a cocktail of paint thinner, lactic acid, & C.L.R. There’s a hint of orange, but at this point it’s a lost cause. I can feel this shit eating away at my stomach lining. Jesus Christ have mercy on my soul. I must have been a prick in my previous life.
