1.76/5  rDev -36%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

A: Murky brown, light carbonation, head disappears instantly

S: Not much aroma at all, but a slight malty smell.

T: Pretty bland, slight c-hop, on the sweet side.

M: Light on carbonation and light in body, pretty limp.

O: Not impressed. I'm glad it was only a free taster glass.

2.82/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Red/light brown in color. Cloudy, white head.

S: Could not get much here. A bit of sweetness.

T: A bit of citrus here, sweetness. tiny hint of malt.

M/O: Light carbonation, fairly watery. Very light, so for me, was better when it was the coldest. Not something I will go back to. I poured half the pint into the grass.

3.53/5  rDev +28.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: red-brown, opaque, one finger head settles, leaving behind thick lacing.

S: Coca-Cola, sulfuric cave water, smoke.

T: Cherry Coke, yeast funk, bitter citrus--provenance unknown--biscuit, a pinch of smoke.

M: medium body, light carbonation bordering on flat, sugary finish.

O: I liked this a lot more when it was cold (maybe that's not a good thing) but it was certainly worth trying.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A: Pours a very murky reddish brown color. Lots of suspended yeast. A small white head forms, but recedes in a second. Looks like murky, muddy, water.
S: Really nothing in the aroma. Maybe some malty sweetness?
T: A bit more here, but that is not saying much. Tastes like dirt and diacetyl. Some yeast, sweetness, and maybe some citrus. That is it.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. A bit light and watery. Not something I will come back to again.

I did not enjoy this at all. Very underwhelming to say the least. This was really bland and devoid of any character. Avoid.
