12oz bottle into a pint glass

This one was sent to me as an extra in a trade. Apparently this was hand bottled by a Live Oak Brewery employee, who was a friend of the trader. Must be something thats done fairly commonly as they have labeled caps. Thanks to Zadavis for sending over this bottle from a brewery that doesn't bottle!

A: Pours a crystal clear light amber with 1.5 fingers width of ivory colored head. Leaves no appreciable lacing.

S: Some caramel malt, citrus, tart apple. Not much going on here but whats there smells nice.

T: Caramel malts, some estery banana flavors, mild tart note, some bready yeast.

M/D: A rather light body but with a somewhat sticky/syrupy mouthfeel. Drinkability is fair.

O: Overall, rather unremarkable. I dont think Id drink this one again. Not that it was bad, but it certainly nothing special. Glad I was able to try a beer that is usually not available to me though.
