A--yellowy amber color, weak thin head with small bubbles...lacing could have been affected by the small plastic glass I had the sample from

S--this beer actually smelled a bit skunky. Had a cabbagey type aroma lingering around...and just a bit of citrus hiding in there somewhere

T--tasted of tangy citrus..not skunky like I expected, sweet malty after the swallow

M--finished dry, and I would have preferred more carbonation..this beer had very little

O--I wasnt impressed with this beer...maybe the skunk smell turned me off early, but overall I wouldnt recommend it.
