Taste Notes

Aroma out of fermenter has a hint of the house infection- metallic vomit-like. Aroma from glass after cold crash and carbonation has strong apricot notes. Good head retention. Golden brown and clear, a few little particles floating around. Taste is a soft bitterness, with a weird twangy metallic aftertaste. Oily slick mouthfeel. If I focus on the house infection, there is some resemblance. Smelling the beer after drinking some gives me a hint of that. But the main weirdness is in the aftertaste. This beer will be presented to the Raw Ingredients and Malting class in 2 days. Remember to report their comments. Beer class loved it, especially the strong fruity aroma. Nobody detected off flavors. Some people said "spicy," like as in chile peppers. Super clear after a few days cold crash. Personally, I'm not enjoying more than one glass
