Clearance shelf, no clue of age.

Pours a brilliant copper with a frothy cream head that leaves sheets of lacing as it slowly dissipates.

Sharp citrus, resin, and sweet, bready, toasted caramel malt form the aroma. There's a bit of floral hop character at the finish.

Flavor is dominated by toasted, bready malt, slightly sweet caramel, which finishes a bit resiny and bitter. Tart, indescernible citrus adds contrast.

Body is a bit watery, with slightly low carbonation adding to the watery character. There's a little slickness that lingers.

Good malt character, albeit a bit too dominant. The flavoring hops are somewhat one-note. Bitterness is too high for my liking.
