Reviewed from notes.
Pours out a somewhat coppery amber color with one and a half fingers of white foam that lasts for about two minutes and leaves behind some minimal amounts of lacing on the glass. Light spritzey carbonation and medium-light body.
Smells of blueberry pie drizzled with cough syrup. In other words: partially medicinal and artificially-sweetened. At least I can smell malt aromas which contribute to the pie crust impression I get from this one. The flavor is several decimal points drier than the sweet dessert-like aroma. I taste medicinal and boiled muddy bittering hops combined with some awkward cracker malts in the first sip. As it warms up the beer gains a measure of boiled vegetable off flavor (soggy canned green beans).
This one doesn't really work for me because of how schizophrenic it is. My best advice to the brewer is to decide to produce either a dessert beer or a savory beer; don't have the aroma of a dessert beer and the flavor of a bad English Bitter. The contrast is way too jarring and discordant.
