Single 12oz bottle bearing a "best before" date of 05/25/07 on the label. Had a nice dark golden color, a sputtery white head that caved in on itself in short order, and moderate carbonation.
The nose was mainly biscuity malts with some fruity undertones. Minimal hops presence. The taste was the virtual equal of the aroma; solid malt profile that quickly outpaced any hops counterpoint. the malt bill is very clean and full of hayfield grains but I scrounged around searching for some form of hops bitterness and came away wanting. Rather one-sided. The feel was medium-bodied but a touch on the watery side.
Overall, not a bad brew, fairly accurate for the style. Possibly it falls a bit short in the hops end of the equation. Nonetheless, worth a try.
