3.45/5 rDev -6.3%
Poured from a 16 oz can into a perfect pint glass.
Pours as a clear golden ale with thick fluffy white foam. Head holds and becomes patchy. Light summery nose, mild malt. Small citrus taste. Good mouthfeel, swirls nicely.
An easy summer drinker. Not remarkable, but good enough flavor.

O - Kind of a pale ale appearance, golden color with a bone white, finger and a half head. Leaves some lacing.
S - Light smell, but gives hints of citrus and even some passionfruit. Mmm.
T - Citrus profile is evident, mostly grapefruit, some lemon. There is a light hint of passionfruit as well, nice. Hop bitterness is low, pine flavor is also fairly light from the hops. It's clear they were going for drinkability here. malts are sweet and balance the tart citrus flavors. Finishes clean.
M - Very light and effervescent. Clean and crisp, nearly perfect.
O - Great summer beer. It's almost like a light pale ale if that makes sense. You get the flavors of a pale ale, but with less bitterness. Impressive that 'Gansett pulled this off.

Golden beer with a thick, foamy head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of lacing. Crisp grass and zesty lemon aromas with some floral hints. Flavors of grasses and grain with soft lemon rind notes. Has a light, dry body that makes it perfect for cooling off on a hot summer day.

Clear, golden yellow with a tall, thick white head, this beer produces some beautiful lace. The beer is light in complexion and fruity in aroma. Estery, slight malt, a touch of herbal hops, distant citrus. Nice. The flavor is light, as is the body. Nice for summer, but it does give us a little complexity and intensity. Slight sweetness, but the finish is abrupt. Good summer brew.

A: Clear light yellow/golden colored body with a big fluffy white head that surprisingly keeps a good bit of retention around the edges. Nice lacing in the glass too.
S: Pale malts, grass, floral hop aromas, faint citrus (orange) peel. Very fresh, crisp, light and airy.
T: Extremely crisp and slightly bitter up front. The hops are somewhat citrusy in nature with a floral note in there too. The malts keep the backbone of this beer without making it feel terribly light.
M: Quite light-bodied, pushing the envelope for what you'd call a medium body (which it never reaches). Crisp, clean and refreshing.
I purchased a 6-pack of these cans for the beach and they absolutely hit the spot. It was light enough to be enjoyable with a refreshing and clean flavor profile. And they're priced just right!
