Poured okay - a rich honey color although the head did not stay long.

The smell was almost skunky. Before I even sipped it I was a little wary.

The taste was horrible - dirty diaper would absolutely best describe it. I had one a couple of weeks ago and felt for sure that it had to be a skunk bottle. Went back 3 weeks later - got another bottle - and tasted again. Same result -

I love a good ale.This is not an easy drinking beer.

This is a beer I could never recommend.

I'm not a fan of hoppy beer. The smell was very overwhelming.

Not a fan of this one. There is a strong funkiness I do not like. I would assume it is the brettanomyces yeast that I am not liking. This may be for some people, but to me it just tastes spoiled.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
