look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
This was served in a bottle and I decanted to a glass.
In the glass this beer was very light straw colored. No haze, very clear. Small head with a small amount of lacing. Head disappeared very quickly. Noted carbonation rising in the glass.
The smell is the first thing that hit me. This beer smelled very skunky. Maybe it was just the restaurant and their lack of knowledge of keeping beer out of the light, when bottled in clear or green glass. I wasn't able to pick up any other undertones due to the skunk smell.
Taste followed suite with the smell. It was hard to put aside the skunky taste and search for deeper flavors.
Felt a little watery, but overall mouthfeel was not that bad.
Overall I give this beer a low score, however I will try it again from another establishment and see if it was just that particular bottle that did indeed get skunked.
