12oz bottle as part of the mixed LONGSHOT sixer, $6.49 @ Cheers, Carrollton, GA, USA. The LONGSHOT six-pack just made it to GA in the last few days. Notched label suggests Best Before June 2007.
Lovely golden color with great clarity, nice carbonation and a smallish, but perfectly formed billowing, pillow-like head. Looks like a hgh quality Pilsner. Light and crisp hop aroma.
Very smooth, silky mouthfeel that is almost slightly slick, makes this feel like a much higher ABV beer than it really is. Crisp initial sweetness (almost honey like) gives way to a mildly bitter finish that builds slightly in the aftertaste. Mild lingering hop finish. A nice combo indeed.
HIGHLY drinkable and a very TASTY beer above anything else, this is another winner in the LongShot series. This and the Old Ale would make me buy the LongShot sixer again as long as my wife would drink the Boysenberry Wheat!
