Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 04.29.14.

A: Flat. No head or lacing at all. Somewhat opaque orange. Sediment is there.

S: Corn or grain first. Citrus, orange, lemon. It's very sour.

T: Burnt biscuit, bitterness, tangerine.

M: No carbonation.

O: The bottle read that this was unfiltered so I couldn't use that as a gauge for how old this was. At any rate, this was simply terrible. 3 sips into it and it was a drain pour. The was one of the most unbalanced beers ever. It was undrinkable.

Rating: F
