12oz bottle into a pint glaass

Light straw yellow, white head, no lacing. Apple, pale malt, and vinegar notes on the aroma. The taste is just awful, dominated by apple cider vinegar and cheap white wine. Its undrinkable. 400plus BA reviews and this is only my 3rd drain pour. Awful. Avoid.

Cascade, Hellertau, and Northdown hops are in this beer and it just didn't work for me. The color and the aroma was ok. I really enjoyed the mouthfeel and the amount of bitterness this beer had but I did not care for the flavor at all. There seemed to be some notes of toasted malt as well.
