Poured very dark and cloudy. A brick color orange against the light bulb but in the natural light like a hazy brown. Off white creamy head that fell slowly and left lace. Nose is faint and first thing I did was look for a date on the bottle. There wasn't one so they sold it me and I am going to review it. I got a flash of some citrus. Pink grapefruit and some lemon peel. I am smelling the very small and luscious beginings of caramel and just a bit of dry biscuit. Seems to me that the hops have faded off because i have to really dive in for the nose. Taste is malt forward. Biscuit and lovely biscuit with a bit of dryness a bit of sweetness. Not really any fruit on the palate but just some remnants of the hop character. Just enough to tease a bit and make you wish it was fresh. I thought I tasted some orange, very light orange. A small bitter and malt. Dry sweet biscuit with a hint at caramel. the malt was lovely. No pine, not really any grapefruit on the palate just a juiciness. Mouthfeel was light enough and soft. I want it again when it is fresh and reserve the right to revisit.
