Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Variety pack says best before Jan 30 2015.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a center patch of bubbly surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves small splotches behind.

S- Somewhat hoppy aroma that's decidedly more herbal and has a biscuity malt backing with a faint sweetness to it.

T- Flavor is balanced, that is if you consider not much flavor to speak of being balanced. Low hop bitterness combines with some bready malt and doesn't go much further from there. There's also a slight metallic taste that doesn't help at all.

M- Small hop bite with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- Drinkable but boring. Wasn't really expecting much due to the low score. Variety pack purchased for the holidays. A tick's a tick, am I right?

Spicy hop aromas mingle with citrus, light fruit and light biscuit.
Pours gold with a slight haze under a 1" creamy head.
Palate begins with light fruit and biscuit leading to a pleasant citrus bitter finish with a hint of herbal vegetal bitterness from the hops.
Above average carbonation and medium body. Light sweetness up front but finishes dry.
