375ml bottle from San Jose CA for $6 - new house day!

Appearance - Slightly hazy golden/amber with a large size fizzy white coloured head. There is a very high amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, clove/coriander, banana, apples

Taste & Mouth - There is high amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains mixed with some lemon and banana/apples. There is also some buttery notes and a bit of a herbal spiciness. It ends with a ripe fruit lightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall - I think this bottle if from 2011 and perhaps it is a bit past its prime. Still a nice tasting beer, but I will have to track down a fresh one. It doesn't taste as refreshing/vibrant as I was expecting.
