From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 3, 2014.
It pours a cloudy orange amber with a lingering off-white head. Some lacing.
The aroma seems very weak to me. I get virtually no hops...not even the subtly of hops with the caramel malts. This is getting a World Class rating? I must have a bad bottle.
The hops pick up a bit in the taste and balance it out the pale malts reasonably well but nothing overdoes anything else. Easy to drink but it seemed to be missing something.
