On draught at the Brklyn Beergarden in JFK, Ubu ale is dark garnett with a small tan collar leaving light lace.
Smell is mild, sweet caramel malt.
Taste is also pretty mild oddly. Very little here for a fairly sizable beer. Mostly just a little sweet malt mid-palate before a bone-dry, slightly acrid finish.
Mouthfeel is dry, with very full, creamy carbonation.
Drinkability is ok. So little flavor that it is effortless to drink, but it's far from inspiring or anything I'd want to drink again given a choice.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A - A rigorous pour yields a 1 finger head that doesn't last too long. Color is a mostly opaque blackish amber. Looks kinda like a coke. Lacing is moderate.
S - Dark smoky malt. Alcohol.
T - Licorice and dark malt up front with a dry bitter finish. Alcohol is certainly evident.
M - A bit overcarbonated for the style. I felt like it amplified the bitterness making for a rather unbalanced beer.
O - A strong ale that doesn't really shine in the flavor department. It is certainly strong in some aspects but unbalanced.
