Pours with an amber malty color. There’s an aroma of caramel-orange and orange peel, in combination. Flavor has an orange marmalade character, with a light hop bite and a quick finish.
No idea the age of this bottle. It tasted “old” but I don’t think it was.

From a beer of the month club pack. Pours golden with small white head. Smell is almost wheaty, sweet, slightly stale light an adjunct, with a tiny tinge of hop presence. Prickly carbonation up front. Flavor is a bit weak, but relatively pleasant. Very light sweet candy malt finish after up front hop flavor (though, not much bitterness). Pretty balanced. Not bad.
