look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: yellow with a honey gold color. Great head with a mix of small and medium bubbles. Some lacing.

Smell. Astringent liquor notes. With heavy yeasty notes. Some roasted caramel malts. It has a sour quality. The hops really get overshadowed.

Taste: Sweet tea like quality with powerful honey texture. It feels heavy in my throat. Astringent finish. Lots of odd unmatched flavors. Lacks balance. The hops are bland. I think the use of well water gives it a mineral taste.

Mouthfeel: heavy bodied. Sour finish.

Drinkability: drinkable but probably better paired with a steak dinner.
