Pale copper golden colour, one finger of white head with some lace along the glass. Smell is hoppy, citrus, malty and lightly sweet, pineapple and grapefruit throughout, some grainy biscuity notes. Taste is lightly sweet, malty, citrusy hop, mild bitterness present throughout, lots of pineapple flavour in the finish. Medium high prickly carbonation, medium body, light oily and creamy feel, pretty good feel throughout. Nice and easy drinking also dirt cheap and flavourful, I can't think of a reason to not come back to this as often as possible.

I've seen this a million times but never tried it. Decided to go for it this afternoon due in part from the endorsement from a liquor store manager.

Pours a hazy, golden with bright white two finger foam.

Smells slightly floral, slightly wet paper.

Taste is a nice mix of citrus and floral hops. Blended perfectly.

Very refreshing beer. Light and crisp without feeling too thin or watery.

I would recommend this to any BMC drinker as a gateway beer. Good without blowing your face off.

I tried this beer in Athens georgia because I had heard good things about it. The overall look was great and the smell and mouthfeel was good but it's just the taste of pale ales I can't get past. I'm more into dark roast or cream tasting beers. Not knocking this beer at all it's just more for pale ale drinkers.
