look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type: Bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Light, golden straw, filtered

Smell: Strong hoppy aroma with equally strong biscuity malt finishing if off.

Taste: Fairly hoppy initially with a strange aftertaste that reminded me of liver. I like BrewUSA's description of old, dried turkey.

Mouthfeel: A bit too carbonated for me.

Overall: Certainly unique, I'm happy to add this to my list of "have tried". I've had worse, but will probably pass on this one in the future.
