A-Poured thin head. Nice color...golden straw-hued. Left some suds on the side, but I wouldn't call it lacing. Slight bit of sediment.
S-Bits of malt and hops, with citrus tones and white bread.
T-OK initially, wheat and light orange, bread, and then I sensed a bit of skunkiness as the stuff lost its cold edge. The bottle says best before 6-7-08, so it should still be good unless it was improperly stored at some point. Aftertaste is like what you would taste 20 minutes after eating Wonder Bread with a glass of Sunny Delite.
M-Pretty good considering. The body is bolder than what I would have expected, the carbonation is perfect.
D-Probably not a bad beer if it was fresher, but I'll never know, since even if it was, it's still not my bag. The balance was surprisingly good, and it was still worthy of finishing despite its handicap.
