Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/8 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and small wisps of surface foam. Not much lacing to speak of.

S- Sweet malt fused with some citrusy hops. Smells decent enough.

T- Taste mirrors the flavor with more sweet malt that's well complemented by the citrusy hops. Yes, I'm repeating myself but that just gives you an indication of how this beer tastes good but just lacks complexity. Alcohol is well hidden. Bitterness is there but not lingering.

M- This is where the beer falls a bit flat literally. When I popped the cap, there was very little psst! to be heard and the mouthfeel reflects that since it's lacking in carbonation. As far as the feel goes, it's oily from the hops and the body leans toward the lighter side.

O- Not as bad as the score would lead you to believe but it just doesn't have much character and my particular bottle was under-carbonated.
