Crystal clear golden hue but foamy white head. Pretty bland nose.

Very kolsch like. Light by consistent and smooth creamy body. Toasted buttery malts, light underlying hop bitterness to balance. Drinks like water. Light but flavors are good all around, could easily suck a lot of these Down. Boring but pretty good.

A thank you to woodychandler for as he cantinues to provide me with canned beers. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malt, wheat. Taste is crisp, wheat, some malts and lemon, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking summertime beer.

A: A glass consuming pearl white head is a four fingers deep upon the pour, soapy, porous, with a good rate of retention. Soapy lashes adore the glass for lacing. Within a strong, and steady rise of carbonation. Lemon peel coloring.

S: Light aroma of musky hay, and dry grains.

T: Sweet oranges, sweetly toasted grains, lemonade and lime. There is some fruitiness, sweet canned pears and honey dew. There is a nice grain base, dry, hay, sweet like, with some wheat crackers and a bit of wet citrus and straw coming on the finish. Decent sharp flavor aspect.

M: Good vibrations of dancing carbonation on the tongue. Light bodied.

O: Overall easy drinking, summer treat, sweet and lemony gentle dry grain finish.

Got this one as part of a mystery locals box from leftmindedrighty. Poured from pint can to dimpled mug:

Pours a clear, pale yellow with an expanding white, loose head. Pretty good lacing.

The nose is soft and sweet - subtle raspberry, corn, sweet malts, very light.

Kind of reminds me of a thickened up American macro - I definitely do get a pleasant raspberry flavor though. I'm not sure where this is coming from but it's nice.

Super easy drinking. This would be a great go-to session on a hot day.

A- Looks like a pretty golden yellow pale ale

S- smells like Budweiser

T- just like Budweiser

M- medium

Overall - When i had this beer i was hopping it was going to be a beer with some lemon flavoring and some crisp taste .Instead i got Budweiser. If you feel you absolutely most buy this beer do yourself a favor and pick up some Budweiser at least your wallet will thank you .

I had a mis-start with The CANQuest (TM) as I wanted to jump back into it in earnest and then mid-marking period grades came due and I had to figure out who was going on the Potential Senior Failure List, which trumped all, sadly.

It is a long weekend, I have no plans and I am emptying the CAN backlog, so if such news is of interest to you, please stand by.

From the CAN: "We strive to honor personal craftsmanship. Our handcrafted beer is made in small batches to ensure quality and peak freshness. Brewed and [CAN]ned by old Forge Brewing Company, Danville, PA."; "Endless Summer Ale is a light-bodied, low-hopped, pale golden ale, with some wheat and lightly toasted malts to round out the flavor."; "Forging better beer".

The Crack & Glug came off without any setbacks, but the fizzy finger of bone-white head showed no interest in hanging around and disappeared like the dodo. Color was a VERY pale yellow with NE-quality clarity. I CAN understand the comparisons to Bud when a beer is this pale. Nose was interesting with a lemony tartness backed up by bite that wheat CAN impart. Mouthfeel was very soft, almost like it was from a cask and the taste was nothing like Budweiser. Sorry. Instead, it had a light-lemon citrusiness along with a wheat tang. This is going to be phenomenal over the course of the upcoming summer. Finish was slightly dry and very satisfying. Another win for the home (state) team!
