2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
10.4% ABV? I’ll BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR! Unfortunately this cost more. What a tragedy, particularly in these economically stressed times when a 30 pack of Hamm’s Special Light can be had for under $12! Think about it! Overall I would say meh or bah, or not. Roll with the Blatz, or Hamm’s and I daresay your liver AND wallet will thank me in the morning....

2016 bottle, a few months old when consumed. Pours golden amber with a 1" white head. Nose is caramel, floral pine, very nice. Taste is fantastic! Smooth yet hoppy. This is a great beer that goes down dangerously smooth for 10%+

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a hazy copper-amber color with a very large, foamy, off-white head with long retention, and very good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a strong blend of hops notes, featuring pine above all, and a mixture of grain, resin, floral, and some lighter fruity notes. It had an aggressively-hopped taste with a strong bitter pine effect, along with some floral and grainy notes, and a very light sour effect, with a modest presence of alcohol. The beer had a thick and full mouthfeel with a somewhat lively body with good carbonation and a dry finish. Intense, but good and flavorful.
