look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle, drank up out tha bottl'

smell is skunky, malt with earthy hops. taste is much better, a full feeling, medium bodied, semi-hoppy lager. white bread malts, some toast and roast going on, i'll say it again: earth hops. English.

"With a bank shot like Alex English I get distinguished"
