Great beer, but could use better head retention/lacing

I have had several bottles of this that have been over the hill - check the bottle date. Fresh ones are good releasing bready malt aromas seasoned mildly with hops. It pours brilliant amber under a persistent 2" foam cap. On the palate it has a creamy malty attack with a pleasant hop accent and a dry finish. It is an easy drinking medium bodied beer with slightly above average carbonation.

From a bottle, this one I really enjoyed. Forgot it was 6.9% as I drank it, so alcohol is well hidden. And not too over powering on the hops front. Could easy have had a second, so will buy again next time I see it.
