04 18 15 etched on neck of the 12oz bottle. Thanks to my brother-in-law and father-in-law for the "Family Reunion" mixed 12 pack for my birthday.
A - deep amber colored ale, fluffy ivory head holds good retention
S - earthy, spicy, herbal hops, caramel, grain
T - caramel, toasty grain, herbal, spicy, earthy; well balanced but seems more like an English Pale Ale - actually this would be a pretty good EPA
M - medium body, ample carbonation
O - ok APA, I actually would have scored it a bit higher if categorized as an EPA. I don't think I'll come back to this one anytime soon.

Pours orange with a little head that lives moderate lacing on the glass. Smells like malts with a hint of lemony hops. Mostly malts. Tastes like it smells, but goes down quite smoothly. Moderately carbonated with a moderate body. Nothing too terribly exciting, but not a bad offering either.

Should be a safe bet for almost anyone. Craft drinkers will appreciate that it's smooth and has solid flavor, and people used to fizzy North American brews will appreciate that it's not too terribly strong.

Also sampled last night on 1/10/15 while watching the NFL Divisional Playoffs. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a pretty reddish-orange in color with a good 1+-finger foamy/creamy off-white head. Lots of 'sheet lacing' was seen when sipped, which surprised me actually. The aroma is of malts. Pretty much the same for the taste but was pretty smooth and went down easy, unlike many pale ales. Just a very slight taste of hops for the finish but was gone in a few seconds. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Very tasty and really liked this one.

Picked up one of Spoetzl's mixed six pack, and this was included. Poured out the bottle into a pint glass, it had a decent off-white head with nice lacing. The color was a dark amber, or light brown. Slight aroma, mostly of malt. The taste is pleasant, with a bit of maltiness and very slight hops taste. According to the label they use Munich malts and U.S. Golding & Bravo hops. I would say that this is a 'Pale Ale Light', fine for the times you don't want a strongly flavored ale. It's definitely not retired - I have seen it in all the mixed six packs from Spoetzl.
