I got 2 bottles of 2 Below - 1 from whoneeds8, Thanks Maston! and 1 from thethrone, Thanks Adam!

12oz bottle served in a chalice.

L - clear orange color with a off-white head that thinned out leaving some lacing.

S - sweet malt with a hint of floral hop.

T - sweet taste upfront with a tea leaf-like floral hop bitterness bringing up the rear, dry finish.

F - medium bodied with mild carbonation feel.

D - fairly easy to drink.
