look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.5

White fluffy two fingers head. Clear yellow with a bit of a darker tint.

Smell is a bit off-putting, it’s got a lager smell but a bit wacky. Don’t know how to describe it.

Taste is like a spoiled lager. Slightly tart, watery.

It’s just a disappointment. Yuck.
