12oz can with no date poured into a Becker pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy straw yellow with 1/2 finger of head that quickly receded into a thin ring

Smell: Strong grain malt presence

Taste: Similar to the nose with a strong biscuit, sweet malt note with a little floral hop bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy for the style and well carbonated

Overall: A nice thrust quencher for a hot day. I know this brew particularly has helped turn many of my friends into craft beer fans. This is light, crisp and unoffensive.
