look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours a cloudy light yellow with a bit of a white head that dissipates fairly quickly into some lacing across the top of the beer and the sides of the glass.

Smell is mainly sweet malt with some yeast.

Taste starts out promising with a bit of sweetness from the malt and honey, but then a weird funky flavor takes over, leaving a pretty nasty aftertaste, Not sure what s causing it, but ruins what could be a flavorful beer.

Feel is a bit watery, carbonation seems a bit low.

Got this as part of a make your own six pack, so only got one bottle, and it wasn't expensive. Good thing, as I don't know if I could polish off more than one of these. Many better examples of the style out there.
