Holy Mackerel Special Golden Ale

Dave pulled this one out of the back at The Brick Store for a quick, Friday afternoon sampling. A couple of 12oz bottles.
We did it blind, so I had a guess at what I thought it was. I said a 9.00%, Imperial Pils type. That was the closest that I could guess, even though it really lacked any sharp, crisp hop bite that one might expect in that case.
Pour was a typical golden, macro yellow, but the head was large, and well retained.
All I got was a vaguely sweet, slightly bitter smooth beer with some fairly significant alcohol. Went down very well. Initially any Belgian yeast characteristics were lost on me a bit (i.e. I didn’t really get any), but as it warmed they came a little more to the fore.
Not bad. pretty drinkable just not too sure about the style label.
