I had this in the bottle so i was unable to rate the look. Hoppy and fresh citrus smelling. Same goes with the taste. Medium mouth feel for dryness with a crisp finish. I enjoyed this beer and looked forward to finishing the rest of the 6-pack.

Don't care for the name, or what it implies. Conquistador? Um, no.

The beer itself wasn't half bad. Sessionable pale ale, so light in alcohol with some hops and a touch of malt. I got a hint of melon and some toasted biscuit rounding it out. Thin bodied, but consistent for the style. That name tho...

I love the giant 32oz cans of Mission Brewery and had to get this one.

A - Vibrant light-orange color with some haze and a course white head. Good lacing.

S - Mostly citrus hop nose that is pretty clean. Balanced maltiness smell mingling with the hops. Also a distinct fruitiness from the ale yeast

T - Very similar to the smell but with more of everything. The hops seem to pop on your tongue but unlike an IPA there is plenty of malt and not a lot of bitterness allowing the flavors to really sit high on your palate instead of being overrun by other forces like bitterness or alcohol.

M - Light to moderate mouth-feel. Higher carbonation which makes it effervescent and I really enjoyed that characteristic of this beer since it has plenty of flavor with high drinkability.

Overall, a really good APA with a lighter body and balanced flavor. Good hops and the nice graininess makes for a terrific summer brew. This beer is one I could drink all day but is not necessarily my favorite just because it is more tuned for drinkability and not staunch flavor.

It's been a while since I had an 'Oil Can', but this one delivered! Great taste, with enough hop - citrus flavor to make it very drinkable. And this is key - 32 oz is like having three regular beers, so you have to be ready to consume, which I was. Knocked it down in a half hour, enjoying every sip along the way.

Terrifyingly large can--felt like a bum carrying this to checkout. Fortunately, googled, and 32 oz is 0.94L, so the perfect size for going in a 1L mug.

A: 4.0 - Hazy light orange color with a substantial inch-and-half-thick head.
S: 3.75 - Lots of citrus hops.
T: 4.0 - Citrus citrus citrus! A great heaping load of hop flavor, though bitterness is not all that, allowing some sweet malt to come through. Very light fruitiness. Dryish finish.
M: 3.75 - Medium, neutral texture, light bodied
O: 3.75 - Very drinkable pale ale. I have an urge to sit on the corner and drink it straight from the can.

A - Mostly clear honey, small head, mostly ring, not much lace.

S - Malt and hops, both on the light side.

T - Nice rich malt with a decent enough hop bite.

M - Good balance, good carb. Pleasant finish.

D - Nice session beer.
