Consumed September 15th, 2012. Bottle labeled "best by 5/8/12". Oops!
Poured from the bottle into a Samuel Adams "perfect pint" glass. A creamy, fine one-finger head of off-white appears and sticks around a good long time. Excellent sheeting. Mostly clear orange/copper colored brew has copious lazy bubbles rising throughout.
Notes of rye and citrus (orange and grapefruit) in the restrained nose.
Flavor is subtle and somewhat complex. Rye bread notes lead off with a bit of spice. Just barely more sweet than not. Clean hop notes on finish: grassy and lightly citric with only a touch of bitterness.
Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy. Slight carbonation prickle. Finishes ever-so-slightly dry.
Pretty drinkable due to the combination of smooth, clean mouthfeel and well-blended flavors. The ABV should give one pause to having more than a couple of these on a hot afternoon, though, as the alcohol is not present in the flavor at all.
Since the beer is well past its expiration date, I can imagine that the hop presence must be more pronounced in a fresher example. As it stands, though, this expired sample was fine drinking anyway.
