22oz bottle, got it for $3 on a whim. bottled in april so it's ~8mo old.

smell is corny grain, some sugar cookie dough. sweet and skunky. poured a little out to check the appearance, it's piss yellow with a bubbly froth that fades to a rim before your eyes.

starts light, clean, bitter, but sweet; ends with a slight metallic tinge and some other off flavors. amazingly, considering the style, there's noticeable hop flavor.

Good, but pricy for what it is.

Bottled 1/2013.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and slight grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer with a cardboard-like flavor that is not all that pleasant.
