look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75
12 oz bottle. best if bought before may 2013.
A: a slight amount of haze in an otherwise brilliant light copper body. head is bubbly and solid. slightly off-white. retention is good, and there is some spotted lacing.
S: nose has a lot of butterscotch/diacetyl aroma. otherwise there is some earthy/pine hop aroma. meh.
T: a citrus presence is notable in the middle of the drink. a bit oxidized, in addition to diacetyl, makes for an overall slightly moderate/unpleasant flavor. bitterness is there throughout and some hop flavor makes its way towards the finish. lemons and pine trees.
M: moderate carb on a medium body. doesn't drink as big as the abv says.
D: this thing definitely tastes like it has lost some quality due to time. however, I am surprised that this is still well before the best by date. wonder how long ago it was bottled....regardless I feel like I have been happy and sad about this brew quite a few times, that inconsistency alone is enough to pass. get your shit together Heavy Seas.
