Poured brownish red with no head. Thin white ring and skiff on surface. Dark in center.
Aroma: Caramel malt. Diacetyl.
Taste: Plum raisin and molasses with mossy hops.
Mouthfeel: Moderate, malty but watery.
Overall: Once I got the diacetyl, it was hard to notice other dimensions of character. Seems like it could be a drinkable beer.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Served:Bottle with minimal descriptions on it,not even ABV

Appearance:Dark,copper red with a finger head with yellow colour,somewhat like a yellow teeth with loads of carbonation

Smell-Malts and slight hops

Taste-Pretty carbonated,tasted sweet .Had a very unique aftertaste(In a bad way)In my opinion it tasted like the smell of burnt plastic which was evident in the smell halfway drinking and the taste was damn nasty

Mouthfeel-Watery,mellow even though it's carbonated

Drinkability-I didn't finish the whole beer,I left about 2/5 of the mug because the taste of the burnt plastic was horrible .You're better off with a Carlsberg or something
