Bottled on date is December 11, 2013. Pours out to a quickly dissipating head and pale brown color. Aroma is very weak, there is some honey and nuts in there. Flavor is very subtle and laid back, reminds me of a homebrew with a bit of a twang and slight oxidation note of cardboard. Not bad but not good either. No real fresh malt or hops evident. Balanced bitter and sweet so another plus for being on style. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is appropriately restrained. Overall a boring brown, drinkable but not exciting in the least. Think Southern Pecan without the pecans. Beats a Newcastle, though!

It pours out amber but there is no head to speak of and what is there disappears quickly. I got a sniff of citrus but not much else. The taste is nothing special but it does drink well on the palate - medium with an upfront fizz that is not too long. I couldn't taste the honey anywhere except maybe in the smell.
