Poured from 12 oz glass into large tulip glass. A slighty hazy golden ale with a finger or so of white head and minimal lacing. Aroma was a little muted. Not sure the age of the bottle I got, but it could have been on the shelf for a while. I couldn't find a date. Some citrus and pine combined with caramel. Taste was very good, but again the hops had probably faded a bit as they are not 'in your face'. Nice balance of sweet caramel and bitter hops with just a bit of citrus and pine flavor. Overall, its good but I was hoping for more from this. Its solid and I'll try it again, but hopefully a fresher bottle.
