I hate for this to be my first review, but I feel compelled to do so.

This didn't even taste like beer. I thought the waitress had accidentally served me a long island iced tea; it was about the same colour and had a citrus sourness to it. I made my wife taste it to make sure, and she said, "yeah, it is beer, just not very good."

Pitiful.

12oz glass on-tap at The Tap brewpub.

Dark red, almost brown in colour and clear. Practically no head. No lacing.

Aroma is mostly malt with a little sweetness and a hint of medicine. Almost like a cough syrup.

Flavour is sweet malt at the start then a medicinal quality comes in at the finish that reminds me of cough syrup. Basically no aftertaste at all.

Thin-medium mouthfeel with very little carbonation. A bit watery.

Overall this is kinda like thin, watery cough syrup. A hint of sweetness, but that chemical/medicinal quality at the finish really hurts it. Very plain with no depth at all.
