No canning date.

Clear, amber body. A brown tinged head forms, filling the glass. It settles to a firm, protective cover.

Weird smelling at first, like boiled cabbage. That thanfully goes away and started to smell better. Spent grain, fruity yeast, citrus hops and some caramel. The boiled veggies don't completely go away however.

Very griany and dry, with some more caramel malts. That pesky boiled veggie essence is back, and it really kills the hops, and the beer really.

Too much boiled vegetables. No sir, I don't like it.

This beer has a nice amber color that looks crystallized or candied. It has pine and soapy aromas, and is chemical, pine and metallic to the taste.

This has a cloudy golden brown/orange look to it. The smell and taste is like orange citrus but also has a sour/bitter taste. Overall, its a bit too bitter for my taste, so it's not one I would not seek out.

The color of this beer is a dark yellow/orange. The aroma you get is a slightly herb smell and is kind of weak. Tasting this beer is strong with a tanginess and is really unpleasant to drink.

This beer has a light golden brown color. It's scent is unique and refreshing as it is hoppy and pine-like. The taste holds strong hops, is rather warm, and has sour and bitter notes. The texture is hoppy and has a bitter aftertaste.
