12 oz bottled "packaged on 10/02/2015"
Consumed 11/06/15
Pours a nice, clear Amber color with a frothy, rocky cream colored head.
Not any aroma detected. Slightest hint of malt.
Now, the taste to me is very one note, that note being bitter, very bitter. No fruit, no pine, no earth.
The malt is nice in the mouth feel, but is overpowered by the bitterness.
Maybe if I had it on 10/6 rather than 11/6?
