look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle with enjoy by date of Dec 27, 2013 to a snifter glass.

A - The beer pours a perfectly translucent yellow golden color with a 3/4 finger white head with decent retention and lacing.

S - The beer has a very grainy character to it on the nose. Also hints of honey and a bit floral. Pretty average for the style.

T - The beer starts with a nice floral character. Slightly bitter and with nice hop character and yeast character. The beer has a nice malt character. The beer ends exactly how the nose smells, if that makes sense. Hides the alcohol very well.

M - Nice carbonation and medium bodied.

D - Very drinkable.

Overall, this was a nice surprise. Good beer.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.
