From the 650 ml. bottle. I'm not sure why I did not inspect it in the store but it has a bottling date of 3/7/13! So I am drinking it on December 27, 2014. And it shows.

Pale yellow color with an overwhelming white fluffy head.

Mildly hopped, aroma but there is also a touch of toasted biscuit and some yeast notes.

Decent medium body.

Because of the age of this bottle the hops were more muted. I did get a solid enough rye, grain character but the hop bitterness had faded substantially. Not knowing how it tastes fresh I am not sure if the hops were more forward than what I got. Despite its age I drank all of it.
