Bottle, the date is smudged, so not sure of age:
Pours a hazy dirty-yellow with a bit of orange. The pour had decent medium bubble head than fades to a gossamer film. Nose is toffee notes with a biscuity malt and some sweet fruit scents. I also get a wet blanket kinda smell, making me wonder about age-it's not bad and could be intended (to a degree), but not sure.

Taste starts with just a bit of grapefruit on top of the malt flavors that match the nose. The new taste evolves to an even lighter pine feel. The beer feels slightly flat compared to the visible head. I got a hint of alcohol when the beer is cold, not really any with a little warmth.

While there isn't anything wrong with this beer, it doesn't really excite me either.
