Picked this up as part of mixed 12 pack from Boulevard. Oustanding appearance on the beer, thick and murky looking with a great head that just grabs the glass as it dissipates, beautiful. Not much to offer the nose but very tasty, Good but not great, I enjoyed this one very much and would have no problem having it again. Might not seek it out but would gladly snag it as part of a mixed pack again.

Sampled also on 5/4/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a english pint glass.

Pours a pretty amber brown in color with about a 1/2 finger off-white head. Lots of lacing was seen with each sip which was very surprising actually. The aroma isn't too heavy and is of some grains with a hint of citrus and floral hops. The taste is crisp and sharp with a hint of rye and wheat. Overall, it is different and isn't bad. Perfect carbonation.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle labeled 3353-1033-F-BEST BY 05/18/14. Sampled on April 26, 2014.

The pour is mainly amber brown with a little reddish hue if held to the light. Some cloudiness which could be a chill haze, and little to no head.

Aroma: Well, not much to it. Yup, some rye and barley grain notes and a basically clean hop crispiness but nothing jumps out as out of the ordinary or particularly special.

The body falls in the light to medium range.

The taste brings out a better rye grain character than the nose and then there is a stronger caramel sweetness that kicks in and a fuller bitterness. But this all has to be taken it consideration with the bland aroma. It tastes better than the bland aroma suggests but does that make it better? Not especially. Ho-hum. OK.
