Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. No decipherable freshness/canning date.
Big, fluffy white head from a center pour, 3" or so. Settles to 1/2", frothy and bubbly with persistent lacing. Color is goldenrod with a little bit of cloudy sediment in the middle.
Orange zest, spicy rye grain, and some grapefruit on the nose. The smell gives the impression of lightness.
Bright and very dry, with pine and grapefruit zest that goes well with the light rye spice. Kind of a chewy finish, with some lingering grapefruit zest. Very little malt, just the right amount of bitterness. Refreshing, leaves you wanting more. Very drinkable (which is kind of the point of a session beer).
Very light bodied, crisp, smooth, and ends fairly clean.
Not a bad beer overall, it does what it sets out to do. Simple, drinkable, and refreshing, with some nice smooth hop and rye flavor. I wish it cost less for how light it is ($9 for a sixer) so I might not buy it very often, but I like it.
