12 oz can served in a pint glass.
Light amber color; hazy; with a semi-durable head.
Light, watery body with medium carbonation.
Somewhat unappealing aroma with a better flavor.
Still very light flavoring. light citrus. Really needs more malt.
O: no reason to recommend this beer.

Serving type: can

Good beer for those who like American Blonde Ales. I am not particularly a fan of this style but wouldn't mind drinking this one if there were no other styles available.

Good taste when you drink it but the aftertaste is not to my preference. The fact that it comes in a can is not optimal, I think that bottle would help the way this beer is drank.

A slightly cloudy, some lacing and two finger head down to a pencil sized head after settling
S bread like smell with a dank-banana aroma
T musky taste up front then to bread then lingering alcohol, bubbles throughout
O overall i feel this beer is great for someone who is not familiar with craft beer and is transitioning from adjunct lagers to the craft world. I feel I could use more malt to balance the back ends excitement.
