Ok, so I enjoy almost all beer, but this stuff was pretty terrible. Can't even blame it spoiling in a bottle since I got it on tap. It smelled like yogurt and dirty socks. The flavor was not much better. The best thing I can say about this beer is that it was amber in color and the 1 finger head was pretty thick. Based on this experience, if a brewery ever markets a yogurt beer, I will pass.
