Poured into an Olympia tulip on 4/5/13

11/08/12 on the bottom of the can; this should be a treat.

The appearance is somewhere between honey and pineapple juice. Short head with good staying power. Nice amount of sticky lace.

Smells of caramel, bread, floral hops, and dead and dying citric hops. Candied overtones. Not great, but whatever.

The taste is bad. Astoundingly bad. I've not had a beer taste so uniquely bad in some time. Not nearly enough caramel compared to the aroma and shaken with contained bitterness. The caramel that there is tastes like it was spat out on the ground and run over by a rubber tire situated on a Deep-V rim directly under a straight bar and no hand brake. What is with this bitterness? Fully realized, but contained within a manageable satchel. Dirty roots and herbs.

The feel is bristly like a mustache.

This is utterly ridiculous.

Has a bit of a strange off taste. It's okay but wouldn't drink again.

The colour is pale gold (7 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger white head sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is quite light with cereals, unripe fruits and a hint of condensed milk.

The taste is first very bitter with some caramel sweetness, orange peel and bitter herbs. Medium body. The aftertaste got warming alcohol and harsh bitterness. The long finish is even more bitter with lime juice and sour candy flavours.

The carbonation is light with smooth small long-lived bubbles. The liquid is semi-smooth.

A very bitter and one-handed APA. Not very good.
