Poures into a becker a dull light goden with a half finger bone white head atop that leaves a few broken globs of lace behind as it settles.Grainy with a light smack of herbal hobs in the nose but it's pretty clean.Quite dry on the palate with a decent crispness and pretty full feel.A good after work beer and will go good in my homemade German sausage Iam making tomorrow.

This is a rare field CAN Review in support of The CANQuest! I was in Morgantown, WV for the day to do some BeerFly reviews and I came across this one in a cooler at one of the downtown bars. I inquired as to the possibility of take-away beers, but such a transaction is disallowed in the State of West, by God, Virginia and so I reverted to pen and paper.
From the CAN (which I retained for FFT Jeff Lebo): "Real Virginia Beer"; "Demand Fresh Beer: Check My Butt to Make Sure I'm Not Older Than I Look."; "22 IBUs"; "Drink the Good Stuff."; "Cold-Aged Lager Beer"; "The brew destined to be put in a [CAN]. Smooth, refreshing, all-malt, German hops. What does it taste like? It tastes like real beer. If you have a buddy or two who hasn't looked around lately and realized we're in the Golden Age of Craft Beer, toss one of these at them to get the ball rolling. It's just good beer, y'all."
I began by demonstrating the Crack! and inverted Glug, producing a finger of bone-white head with decent retention. Color was a gorgeous golden-yellow (SRM = 7) with button-brightness and I was shocked to see Croesus, Midas and Mammon appear, but it was just that golden. Usually, they CANfine themselves to my kitchen. Nose had a clean maltiness, not fouled by unwanted adjuncts, along with a light grassy hoppiness. Mouthfeel was soft and the interplay between the malt and hops was just what I am looking for in a lager. Nothing pretentious or over the top, just a nice, clean beer. Finish was semi-dry with the grassiness coming to the front. I was glad to have tried it, even in a field setting, and I would have it again if the situation called for a CANned lager.

A-poured a clear medium gold with a thick creamy white head. Head has great retention, aided by a steady stream of carbonation, and leaves a small amount of lacing
S- a great lager aroma. Biscuit, earthy hops
T- not a overwhelming lager flavor. Seems subdued when compared to the aroma. A little malty bread notes and some more robust hops.
M-thinner, but not too much so. No noticeable
O-an above-average but not extraordinary lager. I'd go with their kolsch over this one.

Picked this up at the grocery store, in a make your own 6 pack.
Served in a bottle so hard to judge appearance.
Smell was not that great maybe even a little skunky
This beer was like the tale of two beers, initially when I first took a drink it was overally bitter, and left a horrid after taste. However the subsequent tastes where very enjoyable, with good even flavoring, and little to no harsh after taste or bit as it was on the first taste.
Over all I like this beer, but will probably not have it again unless it is offered to me. It is nothing spectacular just a solid beer that is worth trying but now that I have had it probably wont purchase again.
