Found this one while browsing for new beers to try. It's my cousin's favorite, and he was very disappointed when I informed him that this one was retired. Funnily enough, the moment i told him that, we stumbled upon several six packs of this one. The bottle says it expired in August of 07, so this one might not be as good as it would be back when it was still being made.
A - A simple orange-ish brown amber color that looks pretty clear. Very little head dissipating into nothing.
S - An interesting citrus and vegetal aroma with the standard fare of yeast and hops. Very light on the hops.
T - The hops taste is there, but lacks a lot of the typical hoppy bitterness. It could be the fact that it's past its prime, but I'm not getting a lot of complexity here. The aftertaste is where I'm getting a lot of citrus, and even something slightly buttery. Intriguing.
M - watery, but inoffensive.
D - if this was still available in fresh six-packs, i'd be able to knock back dozens of these.
It almost feels like I'm doing this dead recipe a disservice by reviewing a sample that's past its 'drink by' date, but I had to put my cousin's enthusiasm for this one to the test. I don't really see what he sees in this one, but it's perfectly drinkable. I just hope I didn't do my stomach a disservice with this review.
