look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear golden color with a solid 1 inch ivory head that lingers, eventually dissipating into a nice pool of foam.

Aroma is light, fairly grainy, with a touch of corn and slightly sweet malt. Floral hops are subtle.

Flavor reveals more complexity, though grain still dominates. There's also a substantial corny aspect to the profile. Slight hints of green apple are somewhat offputting, carrying into a lightly bitter finish.

Body is a touch heavier than expected, with significant carbonation helping to keep the flavor fresh.

Overall, a very sessionable brew. Wouldn't pay 3 bucks a can for it again, though.

Serving type: can

Appearance: Clear depp gold, with moderate, dense white head, which retains well. The lacing is thick and glass-coating, The carbonation moderate.

Aroma: Somewhat sweet a bit like honey, with grassy and lesser grapefruit rind notes.

Taste: Quite malty, the opening of the test is like fresh-baked bread drizzled with honey. As the taste progresses, there are floral hop notes, and towards the close, some mild medicinal hops. The taste finishes rather cleanly.

Mouth fee: Smooth, soft, quite pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: An excellent, refreshing summer beer, very well done.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a Chimay chalice.
