Rye Candy Red Ale - or what is left of it

Rye Candy Red Ale - or what is left of it

Rock Paperi

Ok, I keep this review brief and short this time. If you have read my review of the Rock Kivi Lager you might remember that I had problems with its best before date. On this one the best before date really needs to be moved one or even two month down. This beer was sour and bitter. There was no ale taste anymore left. It had just gone bad. There were still 3 days left before the best before date. If I would be able to give this one back and reclaim my money I would immediately do that. But how to prove that this beer just went bad? Probably impossible. I need to get my hands on a second bottle.
