look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: [3.25] Golden yellowish color. Forms a nice dense 1 finger white head. I can see lots of bubbles coming up from the insignia on the bottom of the glass. The head has staying power. Decent lacing on the glass. The ABV is clearly marked at 7.5%. The born on date is a treasure hunt. I found a Julian code (I think). It seems the beer is 5 months old. Man julian codes tick me off

S: [4.00] Nice aroma. Pine, floral and some sweet undertones.

T: [2.75] Not like the nose. The first sip was metallic. That faded quickly. The following sips were bitter front to back - not overpowering - but it is the main element. I keep sipping looking for more. I assume there is hop fade due to the age. There is some corn taste, maybe a slight hint of lemon citrus - but nothing really following the nose.

M: [3.00] The bitter front to back is not a great benefit to mouthfeel. The carbonation and body are right - but the bitterness is a distraction.

O: [3.25]The nose and the appearance were pretty promising after that it kind of fell down. I guess I will try another one, in the future, if I find it fresh. The alcohol is well hidden - so that is a plus. This is a "C" beer.
