Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Portsmouth goblet. No sign of a date code anywhere on the bottle.
A - Poured lightly into the glass. A hazy orangey gold color. Non-existent head - essentially just a thin, thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. No lacing at all.
S - Earthy hops, little bit of lemony citrus. Small amounts of bready malt. Nice, but nothing special.
T - Solid bitterness, some hop flavor - earthy and a little spicyness. Thin malt profile, just enough to balance - not enough to make an impression.
M - A little on the thin side. Carbonation is medium. Very smooth.
D - This is a great lawnmower beer. Seems like it would be a perfect session beer on a hot day. Very drinkable - I feel I could have a few of these, although I would probably opt for a different beer second time around on most nights.
