2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 355ml can. Pours clear light golden with two fingers of slightly off white head. Smells is malts, light sweet fruits (apricots), some citrus marmalade. Taste is similar with the hops muted, probably by the time. I guess a too old can to fully appreciate it. Not very pleasant bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
From can. Pours a clear amber with a medium whitish head. Aroma has citrus and caramel, but also a strong butterscotch. Taste is the same, notable bitterness along with the sweet malts. This is a year-old can from a purchase last summer, but I had the same impressions then. I’d be willing to try this again, but won’t go out of my way to buy it.
