yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
Can. An almost clear one, dark golden in color and with a small, dense, light beige head. Fruity, piney aroma with some bready, caramel maltyness. Nice bitterness in the flavor, with pine cones, resins and a maltyness in the back. Pleasant carbonation level, full to medium body. Lasting piney and roasted, bready finish. A drinkable, repeatable one, although it feels a bit old now. 141213

HIGHB4LL (653) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2014
12 oz. can from Supermarket Liquors. Appearance: 2-3 fingers light tan head, copper/amber color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: sweat caramel, earthy hops, floral. Palate: medium body, solid bitter finish, sticky texture, soft-moderate carbonation. Taste: sweet caramel that slowly fades, with a building floral bitterness that comes in underneath, very strong on the back end of the drink. Overall, very smooth, drinkable, but a pretty bitter pale ale.

Got one nice and fresh. Pours a darker golden light brown, clear, with off-white head. Some pine and bread on the nose with a little grass; follows onto the palate. A little spice on the finish with some bread.

kdm1984 (707) - Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Aroma of sweet syrup and old fruit. Tastes like sweet syrup and old fruit. Not very good. I checked the bottom, and it appears the best by date says "May 14," but not completely sure. If so, this could be affected by age. Might try sure-fresh again in the future, but as for now, this particular can was a drainpour.
