Weak, worty aroma.

Soda-like in color with diminished ruby hints. Not much of a head but a few specs of lace.

Rusty flavors everywhere here. More rubbery, spare-tire plasticene malts.

Harshly cutting mouthfeel per style. Sweetness can barely be found to counteract the harshness of the brew.

I think the brewer needs to rethink the malt/hop pairing here because this beer is drain-worthy. A nice flavor peeks out at the last 9/10ths of the swallow.
