12oz bottle, purchased from Habersham in Savannah on 2/23/15. Notch on the bottle indicates that this is best by 1/2015. Clear orange red color. Finger of khaki head. Leaves good thicker lace, and has good head retention. Caramel malt, toasty. Not bad, considering itís age. Just a touch of metallic, and some mustiness in the nose. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft light to moderate carbonation. Light slick texture. Moderate sweet taste, good light bitter. Solid stuff. Good to enjoy with my left over pizza. I bet itís great fresh.

Emeister84 (1364) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Aromas are of faint piney hops, a little apple fruitiness. Clear amber, white head is somewhat lasting. Subtle hops, some bready malts. Light-medium bodied.

malvrich (63) - durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 A: Clear copper with a half finger of beige foam. Busy carbonation. Short retention with good lacing. S: English hops and toffee. Smells delicious! T: Toasted malts with a mild but tasty hop bite coming in. Much like the smell. Not very complex but I think itís very tasty indeed. M: On the lighter side of medium body. Still busily bubbling but I like the tingle. Medium length chewy finish. O: A pretty tasty refreshing amber overall and easily available in my area at very good $9/6 prices. Worth buying again.

Light citrus and some rusty aroma here. Finishes a little wooden, light bitterness. Pours reddish amber with some beige initial foam. OK for style. Bottle.
