16oz can poured into my Half Acre pint glass...finally a canned Chicago local!

Pours a light/pale golden yellow, somewhat hazy. One finger of soft white head forms and quickly dissipates. A thin layer of white haze is left on top of the beer as is a decent amount of lacing...

A fairly docile nose on this one, some subtle citrus mixed with banana makes for a sweet aroma overall. Malts are the focus here, with a bready/cereal focus...a very slight earthy/floral bitterness gives some balance here. Pretty much just smells like it will be an easy drinking, refreshing beer...

Light and slightly citrusy. Malt forward, bready and sweet, not as much fruit in the taste as in the aroma. More dry and grassy than expected...finishes somewhat dry with a hint of lingering bitterness...

Light to medium bodied, very crisp and easy drinking with decent carbonation...

This is not a stand-out beer by any means, but is a great candidate for the cooler in the summer. Easy on the alcohol and somewhat easy on the wallet (in craft standards). Full flavored enough while still being incredibly easy to drink and refreshing. This is a great summer beer that will probably see a lot of cooler time from me this summer, whether it be concert tailgating, golfing, fishing, or chilling on the lake...cans are the way to go for the summer!!
