Appearance- light amber, very clear.
Smell- you have a nice balance and very light smell of hops and malt.
Taste and Mouthfeel go hand in hand. This beer comes and goes so smoothly. This is a very fridge worthy beer. This brew sits very nicely and is a " who wants one' beer. Overall this beer is a great beer, just good tasting. well done.

Wanted to try one out of the can to compare with on tap vs bottle. This review is more a comparison to tap at the brewery.

Appearance: Copper and Amber. Nice thick, fine head.

Smell: Not quite as potent as on tap. Still there but not as malty or pleasant.

Taste: Pleasant and intense malts. Great malt flavors compare very well to the taste at the brewery.

Mouthfeel: More carbonation than from a keg. Still good, but maybe a bit too much carbonation.

Overall: The taste is transferred better from the bottle but right on line with it on tap. Pretty happy and impressed with the taste (bottle vs can vs tap)
