Best by: FEB032013.
Saturated copper color, good clarity, some rising carbonation visible. Frothy collar of tan foam, spindly lace in the glass. Good surface coverage, creamy surface texture.
Earthy aroma of mild coffee, odd yeastiness.
Coffee is present in the taste, though subdued and mellow. Earthy mellow coffee and light toasted malt. Carbed a little high, it feels frothy across the palate. Overall its fun to try this retro beer, but wasn't all that exciting.

Pours ruby brown with a thin to wispy off-white head. Trailing lace drapes down the glass.
The smell is of lemon, floral notes, mint, spiced bread, roasted coffee.
The taste is of medium, approaching dark, malt (dark toffee), roasted mild coffee, hint of tangy lemon. Spicy, dry-ish finish.
It is smooth, effervescent/spritzy, but not fizzy. It leaves a fresh, pleasant aftertaste.
This is a unique beer - blends a malty character with coffee and lemon, without the porter/stout character - more towards amber ale (as it is categorized). Didn't know by the description if it would work, but it sure does!

How can a beer be retired if I'm drinking it now? ROTFLMAO I just picked up a variety 12 pack of New Belgium at the local Jewel Osco. Nice surprise to find a supposed retired beer. I'm new to the review thing so bare with me. Taste good, smells good, head good, lacing good.
