Old Dominion Spring Buck

12 oz single from Total Wine on Barrett Parkway, Kennesaw, GA, USA.
Poured into the Sweetwater Pils glass, the beer pours a noticeable yellow color and looks quite viscous. There seems to be a highish level of carbonation too. Head is creamy, dense and provides some nice lace.
Very prominent orange and honey notes in the nose and taste. I get quite a syrupy mouthfeel which for me is at odds with the light taste of the beer and it all sits a little oddly. It’s strange because the alcohol is not present overtly in the taste, but it is in the mouthfeel.
The beer is very sweet and thick and drinks every part of its 7.5% for me. I don’t really get how in t fits into the style, in fact I don’t think that it does at all, but there you go.
The drinkability is an odd thing; I thought it would be high but it turned out that the combination of style the mismatch and the high, syrup presence that it is not. Strange.
