look: 2.75 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint. Hazy medium copperish with a very small bubbly off-white head that quickly dissipates with minimal lacing.

Yikes. Aroma is sickly sweet. Honey, toffee, and caramel. Slight bready malts and a touch of green apple hinting at acetaldehyde.

Not quite as cloying as the aroma would let on, but still very, very sweet. Very sugary with a slightly bitter lightly toasted taste. Minimal earthy hops flavor if you really look hard for it.

Light/medium-bodied and moderately carbonated.

Pretty bad. Avoid.
