34C - Experimental Beer

Aroma

Varies.

Appearance

Varies.

Flavor

Varies.

Mouth Feel

Varies.

Overall Impression

Varies, but should be a unique experience.

Comments

This style is the ultimate in creativity, since it cannot represent a well-known commercial beer (otherwise it would be a clone beer) and cannot fit into any other existing Specialty-Type style (including those within this major category).

Notes

This is explicitly a catch-all category for any beer that does not fit into an existing style description. No beer is ever "out of style" in this style, unless it fits elsewhere. This is the last resort for any beer entered into a competition.
