Misc.: Apparently didn’t check for canned on date

Picked this up with a bunch of other stuff for my Christmas in Montecito. Was first time I saw this and decided to give it a try. Couldn’t really find any description on it.

Poured a medium yellow-to-gold clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy off-white head. Could see a few bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average foggy lacing. Below average retention. (Sight - 3.25)

Smelled hay, grass, Saaz, herbal and honey. A little better out of the can. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste wasn’t quite as good as the nose, but still good. Got hay, grass, Saaz, black pepper, herbal and light honey notes. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Lively carbonation. Oily texture. Dry, abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.50)

Good overall. (Overall - 3.50)
