From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked APR0113-C012009I Sampled on August 3, 2013 so I do not know if the April 2013 date is the expiration date. If so I am a few months late.
Still, it looks like it should with a medium amber sort of brass-copper appearance with a lingering off-white head.
The aroma is full of sweet caramel and toffee malts with a very distant, nearly indistinguishable hop note.
The body is a little better than medium and pretty smooth in texture.
The taste is about as sweet as the aroma suggests with a lot of caramel malts, butterscotch, and sugar and a subtle hop finale that does not linger. It does what it is supposed to do as far as this style goes.

3.08/5 rDev -0.6%
12 oz bottle, slightly past the 2013 best by date, served in a lager glass.
Pours clear, deep amber colored, with a moderate size but exceptionally creamy head. The head has good retention and leaves a full coat of lacing on the glass with each tip. Lots of carbonation is visible.
S: caramel with some piney and earthy hops, but with a metallic and faintly musky tone.
T: Better than the aroma, but too mild. Caramel malt up front fades as the earthy hops build towards the mildly hoppy and slightly bitter finish.
M: crisp; light-medium body.
O: Decent, at least after it warms up a bit.

Best before date of July 22nd, 2013
Appearance - Pours a clear, brilliant amber with an off-white, finger width head. Sub-par retention, resulting in a broken layer of microbubbles across the surface. Very little in the way of lacing.
Smell - Moderate caramel sweetness on the nose.Subtle hints of earth and floral hop.
Taste - Mostly a light caramel and lightly toasted grain profile. Touches of diacetyl. Slight lemongrass bitterness near the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth and drinkable.
Overall - Not a bad beer, mostly because there's not enough flavor to truly judge, but what is there is unoffensive, and is actually somewhat good. Just wish there was more. One of those beers you'd buy for a backyard BBQ or when you're feeling the need to get a buzz on the cheap.
