4.13/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Single bottle (best by 12/2009 date) poured into a tumbler.

Appearance: Amber colored, but more on the orange shade of things. Slightly hazy. Poured a 1/4" persistent white (shade of orange in there) head with lots of lacing all over the glass as I drank it down.

Smell: Some malt, some mild floral hops. Subdued overall. Is that the bottle date though?

Taste: Well balanced. The malt comes up at the beginning of the sip, then the hops; not too bitter, not too strong. The hops do have some hints of orange to them, but with a pleasant bitterness. The beer finishes bitter, but then leaves a nice malty aftertaste in the mouth. Every now and then on a larger sip I would get something a bit more sweet in there with the other flavors I'm describing.

Mouthfeel: Just right in the carbonation dept., perfect level of thickness and liquidity going down.

Drinkability: I really enjoyed this one. For a beer 1 month past its "best by" date, it's very sessionable and makes me want to have another one. Makes me wonder how better it would be before its date. Went well with a mild curry dish for dinner.
