bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Clear amber brown color, off-white head cover, a band of lace. Taste is lightly roasted malt that adds quite a bit of honey in the palate before turning just a bit bitter in the lingering sweet finish. Pretty simple, drinkable, but not very memorable.

Clear golden-amber color with a short light tan head. Faint aromas. Notes of honey, metal, and smoke. Watery texture. Flavor mimics aroma. This is pretty bad.
