12 oz glass into a pint glass over the weekend. Best by 7/10/14, so a couple days past. Oh well.

Looks good, amber with a yellow tint, 1 inch head somewhere between creamy and foamy (croamy?) Very good lacing. Not a lot of carbonation here.

Not getting anything on the nose. Maybe the old snout is off today.

Taste I'm getting is very subtle across the board. And improves toward the back end of the drink. A malt sweetness, with a faint but obvious hop bite (if that makes any sense) Could be affected by being at the end of its best by date.

Mouth was medium, neither soft or dry

Overall, not my favorite beer from one of the better breweries. But still a decent drink.
