The first sip was horrid. It was like tasting curry for the first time... and really hating it. And hating it, etc, etc. That was the bottle. On tap is worse. I've seen the breweries water source, and it ain't pretty. Dead bodies, pollution, etc. When I went to finish it off and move on to something tasty, like tap water, it did get a little better, but it didn't have much of a taste to begin with, so I guess it just got less nasty. A lot to look forward to. Less nasty.
