1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
I’ll admit I didn’t have very high expectations for this beer. But it looked OK and the aroma, though barely noticeable, wasn’t offensive in any way. Then I had a sip, it was a bit like licking a 9V battery. Not that it gave me a small electric shock (though it tasted shockingly bad) but it gave me that same metallic mouth-feel. Needless to say most of the bottle went down the drain.
