3.15/5  rDev -16%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Best before September, 2011.

A: Amber. A modest pour yielded about a finger of head that things out but lasts to the bottom of the glass and leaves heavy lacing.

S: Floral hops at the first whiff, but then they disappear leaving only some sweet, toasty malts.

T: Floral hops again come through at the first sip but then I lose them for the rest of the beer. Caramel and biscuity malt. A touch of bitterness at the end.

M: Creamy but a bit low on the carbonation (but maybe that's the plastic cup...)

O: There's nothing bad about this beer, but then there's nothing compelling about it either. However, the glass does empty pretty quickly.

Serving type: bottle
