look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

A: Light yellow with a slight haze. Forms a small, fizzy white head that reduces down to a thin surface coating. Leaves some light lacing.

S: Catty, vinous, bready, and yeasty. Green grapes and pears. Awfully fruity for a pale ale.

T: Amazingly bad. There is a never-ending cacophony of putrid flavors: moldy bread, stale wine, rotten apples, yeasty fruit, and cat urine. There is a mild sweetness that comes across as apple juice. Long, punishing finish.

M: Lighter body. Mild-to-moderate bitterness. Medium carbonation.

O: Undrinkable. Couldn't even get through a single glass of this before I drain poured the rest of the bottle. And I've got to say I searched both BA and RB for more on this beer: it was brewed in November and bottle says it's good until March 2013. I can not imagine this one is old or skunked at this point. Unfortunately this is just a bad beer. Truly one of the worst beers I've come across in some time.
