AROMA: Very skunky (green bottle). Some spicy hops? Corn syrup? Light candy sweetness. Not bad if you can get past the skunk. 6/12

APPEARANCE: Clear pale gold. Bubbly. White soap suds. Some lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: Surprisingly sweet. Skunk not present in palette. Some corn syrup flavor. Very faint spicy hops, but other malt-forward. Fairly clean overall. No metallic or dirty sensation. Not bad. 13/20

MOUTHFEEL: A bit thick and undercarbonated. Not as crisp as expected. Clean finish. Smooth. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: One of the better beers of this style I’ve had, actually. 7/10
