16 fl oz. can, with no apparent canned on date present. My second beer from Half Acre Beer Co., acquired the four pack from the local beer store.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a bright cloudy golden orange with two fingers of frothy white head. Some small sediment noticeable twirling in the glass. Leaves behind some okay spotty lacing.

S - The aroma is light piney, floral, herbal, grassy. Some nice orange / lemon citrus pith in there also. A pleasant aroma, but I was expecting more.

T - Taste follows the nose - not hardly as piney as the aroma would suggest, which isn't much as is. Still, notes of pine, grapefruit, oranges, lots of honeyed bready malts, and a tad yeasty.

M - Smooth, crisp, & fluid. Light-bodied and easy drinking.

Overall it is a nice American pale wheat ale, but it is a far cry from stuff like Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale. An enjoyable offering, I could see myself drinking this one in the summertime, but it's probably not one I would seek out again often.
