While this brew didn't cause a panic attack, I confess I was a bit buzzed by it. Having just finished a Yuengling Summer Ale with my dinner, a friend offered me the Holy Mackerel. So, I drank it. This beer has a wonderful dark golden appearance, but would I have another? No. It's syrupy sweet flavor reminded me of that "nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever, so you can rest medicine." If those symptom occur, however, yes I'd have another.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Dark orange/amber; No head
S: Citrus/Apple, faintly sweet
T: Tiny, bitter kick; refreshing citrus (and almost woody) aftertaste
M: Surprisingly mild for 10% ABV! Thicker than most but it still creeps up on you.

Hardly seems as strong as it is. Moderate bite yet still has some personality.

2.81/5  rDev -15.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a rather nice head that leaves a clump of lacing behind

Smell: Herbal elements dominate, with treacly sweetness underneath; fruity tones, as well, with orange peel and a hint of green banana

Taste: The treacly sweetness lays down a base, with orange peel, green banana and coriander developing in the middle; after the swallow, the beer gets very hot, with the fusel alcohol dominating the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and sticky, with moderate carbonation

Overall: Very unbalanced and unpleasant to drink; too sweet and too hot; I would have a panic attack if forced to finish the bottle
