look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

No real bottle date and had some sediment at the base so I can only assume it's over 7 months old.

A - A very hazy amber yellow so not quite blonde at all. Head exploded forth filling my whole glass with foam even with a tilt. So far not good.

S - No real hops just a raw grain smell and maybe some musk.

T - OK this bottle is older than I thought I am for sure getting a wet cardboard flavor next to some bittering hops and a very raw grainy taste. A shell of it's former self.

M - Medium bodied.

Overall I may revisit since I liked the summertime lager but I even had that one with age and it was at least drinkable. This one resulted in a 1/4 of the bottle drain pour.

12 ounce bottle, bottled 4/11/12. Poured into a Unibroue tulip. Hazy, gold body with a white head, low retention. Clear lacing. Aroma includes zesty citrus, maybe percimon and lemon. Taste has a crisp hop bitterness with a dry aftertaste. Some grapefruit flavor of hops, light in malt character. Not a bad beer, I'm sure it's just a touch past its prime.

Bottled 3/9/2012, so it's nearly 7 months old, bummer.
It pours a brassy orange with fair clarity, long lasting foam and sudsy lacing, a spotty band adheres to the rim of the glass. A delicate thin veil of skim maintains itself for the entire glass.

Grassy faded hop tea aromas, mild with a vague grainy malt note.

Flavors follow suit, some vague dried citrus peel of Centennial and bready pale malt sweetness, light residual hop bitterness. Light bodied, dry with a decent hop presence still detectable. The tea notes are telltale signs of age, but its not entirely faded. A fresher sample is needed to give it a fair shake, hopefully the shop will still carry it in singles.
