look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Consumed early March, reviewed from notes.
12oz can into snifter. Date on bottom says 1/27/14. If this is a "canned on" date then I've gotten a bad can.

A: Pours a hazy dark grapefruit color with a large and greasy off-white head that slowly faded into a bubbly airy film that left a network of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Super malty and faded with dirty hops, caramel, and biscuit dough. Faint citrus, faint tropical fruit.
T: Follows the nose with old old flavors of what was once probably a good beer. Hops are all but faded and this tastes like a slightly bitter malt bomb.
M: Medium body, soft carbonation, greasy, slick and drinkable mouthfeel.
O: Everything I've found online points to the date being a canned on date and not a best before date. Howevr, this beer tastes like it's after a best before date. Thanks for sending the tick, Paul, but I think I got a bad can. There's no way drinking a beer that was canned just over a month ago should taste this bad.
