Light coppery-tan color, with faint haze which appears as tiny particulates floating throughout. The head is about 1/2 inch thick, and it settles slowly to a nice ring. Hops dominate the aroma, with a tangy, medicinal character, almost like paint thinner, but still enjoyable. There is a good light nuttiness in there also. The flavor is clean with bright hops and a very unsweetened maltiness, before finishing on a lightly bitter note with a hint of toasted nut. Medium bodied, with solid carbonation creating some light foam that coats the palate well. I can't really say anything bad about this brew. It is a very quaffable offering, perhaps a good choice for sessioning if I only had more than this one can. Thanks to SkinnyElvis for the chance to try it...

Very light copper, more of a dark gold color. Very fluffy white head. On the nose were fresh hops, possibly cascades, full of a clean citrus and peppery scent. Taste was on the light side, light grains, lemon and again with the citrus hops. Overall the flavor was a easy going, not overly complex and fairly smooth and a little astringent. Finished a little bitter and herbal.

A nice beer, one to drink, not really think about too much.
