When did CCB change bottle caps?

    I found a Guava Grove today and was hoping for some help identifying it's age.

    It has the old, larger label... like this one...

    and a regular golden bottle cap... without the CCB wax emblem.

    I've found some in Orlando that look the part but don't taste the part of the sour Guava. They were bottled after the sour batch.

    I had an infecetd Guava a few months ago. Easily one of the best beers I've ever had. Nice find!
