Appearance, a nice deep green, but a bit hazy from the particulate.

Louche: What's a louche? Barely even gets hazy.

Aroma: Heavy and medicinal. Lots of what seems to be lower quality wormwood. Some heat.

Mouthfeel/Flavor: Ack! Tons of intensely bitter wormwood. Not a good bitterness either. A rancid, horrendously drying bitterness.

Finish: You'll taste that bitterness all night. Not fun.

Overall: Macerated brands like this carry absolutely no resemblance to authentic absinthe. While Kyle Barnsfather might argue that filtration recreates the distillation process, the end result shows that he is not only wrong, but completely out of touch with reality.
