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.

Purchased from one of the local cigar lounges.

A: A slightly amber/orange golden with moderate head and retention.

S: Slightly malt forward and sweet.

T: Pretty sweet flavor, (honey?) Mild hop and a little bit floral.

M: Mild carbonation and somewhat rich.

O: Not a great beer but not awful. Probably won't buy again.
