Pale Ale past best by date. Still good?

    I bought a 6 pack of Mirror Pond Pale Ale today and when I got home I noticed the bottles were dusty and it has a best by date of 10/31/12. Next time I will make sure to check the date.
    Will this beer still be any good? Thanks.

    Drink one and find out! Probably drinkable, but not at its best.

    Best answer.

    (Personally, it will be too malty for my liking but it's all personal preference.)
