I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. From the 12oz bottle to a pilsner glass. I bought the beer about 2 months ago and didn't realize until now the bottle says for best taste drink by October (5 months before I bought it).

Appearance: Pours a nice golden color with a small white head that didn't last long. The carbonation really comes through in the glass.

Smell: Floral hops and biscuity. A little muted, probably from being past its "freshness" date.

Taste: Bready malts, citrusy and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and medium-bodied with good carbonation. The best part of this beer.

Drinkability: Pretty decent beer. Would like to dry again with a fresher bottle if they continue to brew it.

Serving type: bottle
