I brought back two coop beers from Oklahoma, both in cans of coarse. I must say I was cautious of this one but actually found this to be my favorite of the two.
It pours a hazy golden, with a nice white laced head.
The aroma was Bread like with a citric note.
The taste of wheat malts with a slight spicy hop blended well. Hints of lemon and even pepper add to the flavor.
The mouth was smooth with a spicy black pepper note.
Overall a good, well done brew. Enjoyed and thanks Oklahoma .

The beer pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is has some nice biscuit malt notes, as well as some grass and a hint of citrus from the hops. The flavor has a lot of the same notes. The grain and biscuit malt notes add some sweetness to the beer. There is a little bit of pepper and some grass and earth notes. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A: Hazy, yellow with a solid 1.5 inch head--sudsy with good retention; beautiful lacing
S: Citrus and grassy hops up front (lemons and apples linger); a grainy background--really crisp and fresh aromas
T: Really balanced but actually a pleasant amount of noble hop bitterness; this is incredibly refreshing and crisp and citrusy
F: Medium body and creamy without an abundance of carbonation; a touch thin on the finish
O: This is a solid, refreshing beer; I'm incredibly impressed with this brewery so far

Pours an effervescent honey color with 3 fingers of ivory colored head. Above average lacing & head retention
S: Bready & grainy notes, plus a bit of green apple, some perfumy hops as well
T: Much doughiness, bready sweet malt & a touch of lemony & grassy hops up front. More grassy, grainy & bready notes as this warms, nice pear fruttyness & a touch dryness & lemony hops too. Finishes dry with grainy breadyness, some lemons & a touch of honey suckle & Golden Delicious apple; almost pulled a 4.0
MF: Light/medium bodied with soft carbonation, good balance
Drinks easy. I like this better in the can versus the draft versions I've had; almost seems like a different beer. The draft version struck me as more like a Mexican Lager type deal with some rough notes. This will be in the rotation if I can find it around here...

Pours from the can into a thick pale head with smooth, even lacing all the way down and a clear golden color (this is one sexy beer). Aroma is a slightly creamy/sweet grainy, malt-oriented scent with some spicy hops poking though. The flavor is a very well-done classic Mex-German style Pils, hold the skunk. Sweet pale malt, with a tangy noble hop balance. Mouthfeel is on the heavy side for the style but very pleasing and the CO2 is just right. Overall, I say this is a winner. I can't wait to return to OK to get more.

Poured from pint can to brandy snifter, big thanks to 4balance for this one!
Pours a middle gold without much of a pulse... Fat two fingers of white head, a bit of lacing.
The nose showcases some corn, wet hay, leafy hops, faint pale malts, pretty damn clean. Smells like a nice BBQ beer.
The taste exposes a lot of the same things... mild grains, soft corn, a bit of hops near the end. If this was my local brew it would quickly become a staple summertime beer at my house.
American blonde? Not really... But still a quality hot weather beer from a brewery that I wish had a spot in MN.

Two ounces poured into a pint glass so I could get a look at it. The rest drank from the can. Sent to me by ThirstyHerf as an extra.
A: Pours a boring light yellow with a decent white head.
S: Mildly fruity grain. Floral, coarse milled cereal.
T: Soft grain and mild vegetal taste. Slightly sweet, like honeysuckle. A bit of dry leafy bitterness from the hops. Crisp, coarse grain in the finish.
M: Soft-bodied, good carbonation, creamy.
O: Nothing to write home about, but certainly better than the alternative.

Poured this brew into a Pilsner glass, and the brew makes a solid two finger thick head of clean white, and the body is golden with a mild haze.
The aroma is a little grainy and corn husk like, lemony Noble hops shine through, giving this brew a refreshing fragrance.
Taste wise there is a mile caramel malty sweetness to the brew, along with lemon drop sourness and mild metallic qualities.
Feels light in body, and refreshing. Nice carbonation and leaves the palate refreshed.
