A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is sweet, malty. Taste is crisp, malts, some grains, none of the sweetness in the smell, kind of on the mild side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear golden color, white head that retains well and leaves a white film. Light lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malts, very grainy, smells like a clean, natural lager without adjuncts.

Taste: Very sweet grain and malt body. Toasted bread note, somewhat.

Mouthfeel: Dry and carbonated.

Overall: An excellent clean, refreshing canned lager.

I CANnot get over just how many craft CANs are available in Colorado! If you are looking for a trade or if I owe you from a previous CANTrade (TM), let me know as I am going to have a plethora available shortly.

From the CAN: "Hand-Crafted Beer"; "Bright, Fresh, Easy"; "Ingredients [-] Snowmelt[,] Malt[,]Czech Saaz Hops[,]Lager Yeast[,]"; "Specs [-] Hand-Crafted[,]Aluminum CAN[,]Portable[,]Recyclable[,]Good"; "Colorado Trout Unlimited 1% for Rivers".

The Crack revealed yet another brimful craft CAN and so it was time for an inverted Glug. Now, before I proceed, I need a disclaimer. As a native Pennsylvanian, I know how hard it CAN be to use lager yeast and since we have centuries of experience, PA lagers are some of the finest outside of Germany and the Czech Republic, IMHO. That said, I tend to be hard on craft CANned lagers. I got a finger of foamy, bone-white head with moderate retention from my pour. Color was a pale yellow with NE-quality clarity. Nose was lightly grassy, leading me to wonder what happened to those lovely hops, along with a very characteristic honey-like lager sweetness. Sofa. Sofa, so good, because when I CAN smell the honey characteristic of the malt, it means that NO adjuncts were involved. Mouthfeel was medium, about right for the style, and I got grassy hops on the tongue, but not as prevalently as I might have liked. Finish was both grassy and slightly metallic. It was not a bad beer, per se, but as a lager, it was found by me to be lacking. Keep tweaking this one, fellows.
