look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

12 oz brown bottle, coded date on the neck

Average in look for the style, nothing else to say here.

Smell and taste are on the sweet side, vegetal character, a bit metallic, with more sweet corn. Ugh.

M - Pretty terrible, even for the style. Way over carbonated, rips across the palate, not smooth at all.

O - Won't be revisiting this one.
