Angry Cedar Brewing Co. Flash Flood Pale Ale

The Angry Cedar Brewing Co. is in Waverly, Iowa.  It takes its name from the June 2008 flooding of the Cedar River that devastated parts of many eastern Iowa towns.

This 5.0% ABV beer pours orange-copper in color with a quarter inch of off-white head, foamy, slightly soapy in appearance.  The aroma is malty, roasted and toasted, but an off-putting sour smell, like uncleaned tap lines. The taste is malty with a very bitter and dry finish.  Unfortunately, the off note in the aroma, an unclean sourness, is also quite present in the taste and ruins this beer.  This beer has potential, but it is a drain pour for this bottle, undrinkable.
