2.98/5  rDev -18.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz can to a Cigar City Snifter.

Color: Clear gold with a white head.

Smell: Bready malts and earthy hops on top. Followed by a hint of citrus.

Taste: Brady malts and eath hops. Then a hint of orange (the citrus I detected in the aroma).

Mouthfeel: Coarse with a medium dryness on the palate.

Overall: Light bodied and crisp. Just seems a little light and dull. Too subtle and boring for me. Cheers.

Serving type: can

3.78/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Hazy straw gold color, nice foamy white head that settles to thin film and ring. Leaves spotty lacing

S: Mild aromas of herbal and citrus hops, sweet light malty grains

T: Sweet malty grains, a little biscuit and cracker, light ambiguous hop flavor to clean up the sweetness. Smooth and very drinkable.

M: Light feel with solid carbonation, crisp finishing

O: Not a lot going on here but that's what you want in a low ABV canned beer meant to drink outdoors. Great lawn mower beer or a great addition to the cooler for beach/pool/camping trips.

3.88/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear amber capped by an inch or two of foam; very impressive lacing

Smell: Fruity, floral and slightly citrusy, with a hint of biscuity malt

Taste: A biscuity backbone, with fruity flavors, up front; adds a bit of citrus, in the middle, with just a touch of orange that arrives in the finish and lingers in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium body with crisp carbonation

Overall: It is that hint of orange in the finish that makes this beer for me; very refreshing and enjoyable, though relatively straightforward

Can from trade, can’t remember who because it has been sitting around for a bit. Thanks! Pours a light clear golden with small white head. Huge floral aroma like potpourri, but not to the point that makes it in appealing. Slight citrus as well. Flavor is a combo of citrus and big floral notes. Actually nicely crisp and refreshing. Light body and high carbonation. Nice brew that could be enjoyed as a session it seems.

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

Can -> Wine Glass

A: Hazy slightly orange/straw yellow, minimal 1/4" white head, some spotty lacing.
S: Citrus, lemon, clove, slight hop notes.
T: Nice citrus hops - similar to a white IPA, caramel, malt, slightly floral.
M: Nice CO2, light-medium body, crisp & refreshing, surprisingly thin for the amount of flavor it packs.
O: Light and flavorful brew. Nice layered flavors and not overly hopped. I would prefer a little more body personally but in this case it makes this beer very drinkable and ready for another.

12 ounce can -> Grand Teton snifter

A - very pale hazy straw color, one half finger head diminishing into nothing, and no lacing to speak of

S - very citrus, lemon, orange peel, and pine, maybe bready

T - kind of one dimensional citrus with a metallic finish

M- not bad, but not great either. Biggest negative is the metallic aftertaste

O - pretty average

4.16/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

A golden and lemon bodied pale amber, very nice but a little hazy, with a big fluffy bleach white head, and lots of rising bubbles. Settles to a weak put one finger sized puck.

Nose has bready malts, an interesting almost Kolsch like fruity ester quality.

Palate hits with a lot of hop spice and grass notes. Clean with a wine fruity finish, but a good sense of bakery dough. There's a little bit of competing flavors which clash so slightly, but are good in there own individual way, so a little unbalanced but not terribly. Body is light and refreshing with a good mix of malt density and crispness.

Overall a very satisfying pale ale, sort of reminds me a little bit of their Endless River Kolsch too.
