I need to apologize to Sam because I bought this a bit past the month of expiration, but I don't think it affects this review. The pour seemed quite robust and a nice head came up without coaxing. The head did dissipate a little too quickly and not much lacing was present. Nice caramel malt aroma with a background of hops. The flavor was very nice and gave off hints of malt and bread, but these were well balanced by the light hopping. Crisp finish; quite dry. Very enjoyable, drinkable beer. I will seek it out next year when it's released again.
