Purchased locally from bottle shop ($9.99/6). Bottle dated 11/2/11. Poured into a tulip glass.
A: Mostly clear with some cloudiness from some suspended yeast particles; gold/amber; 1+" off-white head that settles rather quickly and leaves little trace of lacing; steady effervescence.
S: Fresh, clean grapefruit and lemon, sweet malts; some floral and whisp of pine.
T: Citrus fruit arrives first; sweet malt, along with low, steady level of bitterness that finishes somewhat dry; alcohol is well masked.
M: Light-to-medium carbonation, medium body; crisp; very slight warming.
O: Both complex and extremely well balanced; refreshing and very easy to drink. Reminiscent of Founders Two Hearted Ale.
Serving type: bottle
