Bottle received as extra, thanks CruisaC.

Brown bottle with a great looking label on the front, Three Flyods style all the way. No date or batch numbers on the bottle of any kind.

Pours a crystal clear ruby color with no cloudiness what so ever. Head formed with only the slightest help, with a off white hue. The head was a bit thin but hung around for a bit. No lacing threw the glass as it was consumed. The aroma was hardly noticeable for this style. Most brews I have had in this style the aroma is not as strong as other brews but this particular brew was barely there. The taste was up front bitter hops with only a hint of a malty background. The malt was not forward enough for this particular style or really my preference. The carbonation was over done and pushed way to much of the hops forward. I was left with a acidic taste and feeling in my mouth. I was looking forward to try this brew as it is one of my favorite styles but was unable to stomach it. Hopefully I had a old or bad bottle. Probably with age is that I will never know due to the lack of any dating on the bottle. I will give this a try again in the future and re-review if needed.

Bottle: Poured a brown color ale with a medium dark-white head with low retention. Aroma of hops is clearly detectable with some caramel malt. Taste is lighter then expected with some caramel malt and a bitter finish. Watery feel at the end is very unpleasant. Body is definitely too thin for my liking and alcohol is very well hidden. Definitely not the best from 3FL and not even close to the best of the style.
