Batch two, the "bad" one. This was horrifying. "An actual nightmare. Undrinkable blend of industrial chemicals." were my notes from the day.

Sweet Jesus, this was awful. I give an "A" for effort, as the list of ingredients was appealing, but after pouring it in my glass and taking a whiff, I got nervous. It has a bizarre, slightly-sour note to it, but it reminded me of the smell of nail polish. I thought "what the hell", took a gulp, and knocked it down. Before it could clear my throat, I thought my flesh was under attack from the inside. The peppers literally felt like they were clutching at me and trying to eat a hole through, and I had to gag down one more taste just to confirm that I didn't make up that sensation. Only thing I enjoyed was the color, as it looked deep and inviting with a rust-tinged hue to it. Otherwise, one of the worst things I've ever had.

This is the worst beer I've ever had. As Jordan put it- "it's like vinegar and nail polish remover had a baby."
