3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Lightly hazy orange color, full sized off-white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, hops, quite fruity. Taste malts, some caramel, hops, a bit metallic, a bit dry, medium to firm bitterness. I think if I would try this fresh it would score close to a 4, but it is clearly past its prime. Still decent, but you can taste that the flavor has declined.
