Poured from a bottle with an enjoy by date of 6/4/14; into a pint glass.
Appearance - light, bubbly amber; thin white head that leaves scattered lacing.
Smell - I detect faint toast, some pine, as well as mild spice.
Taste - sweetness from the malt paired with a touch of bitterness from the hops.
Feel - light body with a well balanced malt and hop profile!
Overall - better than I expected and a good value!

this extra special bitter or fuller flavor than the normal bitterness, the bitterness has mediocre show some gentle malt and give slight hints of caramel, biscuit and floral hops all a bit vague
