Appearance: particulate-laden hazy pale amber with one fat finger of fine pale ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate soapy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: sweet citrus & stone fruit, caramel. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-low carbonation, sweetish medium duration mildly warming finish. (4/5)
Pretty sure this is somewhat the worse for wear after eight months in the can. I really need to start checking date codes in the store, but then again I’m usually in a rush, so… No oxidation (can, duh) but the hops are definitely no longer juicy (assuming they once were). A bit on the sweet side, but that’s sort of balanced by the mild warming. (14/20)
This will be my 5,447th unique Untappd check-in.
