Elderly sore? Pours semi darker amber color with a few red highlights through out. Great clarity and with a little help on the pour left a pretty rocky white head. Limited retention and no lacing to speak of.

The nose is presentable but off. Some grainy aromas that have some sour or old malt characteristics. Some sweeter caramel malts and a nice hop presence. Kind of generic citrus and floral aroma. Some light oxidation/cardboard as well.

The taste is off as well. Actually I ended up dumping a little less than half of it. Off malt flavors with some caramel and sour grain flavors. There is a almost malt extract flavor where is has a slight plastic/veggie flavor. Definite oxidation notes. Limited positives but a nice hop balance with some citrus floral coming out.
