2.13/5  rDev -29.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into Samuel Adams pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a very dark but clear brown with a one-finger off-white head that quickly dissipates. Spotty lacing is left on the glass.

Smell: Skunked to hell. An extremely light malt smell behind the skunk.

Taste: Not as skunky as the smell, but there also isn't anything else going on here. Light skunk, light metal, extremely light malts, water.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and high carbonation, easy as hell to down.

Overall: Good for occasional drinkers who enjoy AALs, because it really reminds me more of an AAL than a dark beer. Not what I was expecting, and not very flavorful at all.

Serving type: bottle
