Looks:
Amber brown, very transparent minimal head quickly wears down to a thin collar. Tiny pinprick bubbles
Smell: Very subdued smell. Biscuit-y and earthy with a mild nuttiness.
Taste: Diacetyl butteriness , slight honey taste and a bit more nuttiness. Mild. Lactic aftertaste.
Mouth Feel: Smooth with little carbonation. Subtle.
Overall: Not spectacular but drinkable enough.

A - diacetyl is quite heavy and disturbing. Some sweet honey aromas sneak through as well as some biscuity notes.
V- deep amber color that is crystal clear and the two finger head that originally was poured discipated quickly into a thin, non-persistant white head.
F - as in the aroma the diacetyl slickness is quite noticeable and overtakes almost every aspect of this beer. It comes close to being cloyingly sweet with virtually no hope character at all. Some toastiness lingers in with the malt which is it's only saving grace.
M - medium-light body with very little residual carbonation. The buttery slickness from the diacetyl coats the entire inside of the mouth.
O - I must have gotten a bad batch based on previous comments but it was a pure butter bomb. I struggled through 3/4 of a PBR before I couldn't take it any more.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Medium wood stain brown, light haze, medium low carbonation, 4 fingers of light beige head.

S: Light toasted quality, light honey, dough, caramel, toffee.

T: Apple sauce, biscuit, light acidic quality, a sort of plastic quality. A sort of vinous quality like some kolsch style beers.

M: Light body, medium low carbonation. A little like white wine.

O: Found this one in Montgomery, AL and drank in Decateur, AL. I love to try local brews. I’d say its good, not typical for the style, and as some off flavours. Otherwise, its got a great label on the bottle, and is really not bad.
