This is another one I picked up in Panama City Beach, Florida. Poured from a 12 oz. can: slightly hazy, golden to orange with a sustained, fluffy white-head. The bottom of the can had a date stamped, but it was smeared.
When I opened the can, an explosion of pungent, bittersweet tropical fruit greeted me. I also thought I detected a little piney aromas; so far so good.
The key to this ale is its refreshing character. A delightfully, thirst quenching taste with flavors of mango and grapefruit with a soft malty background. The hop bitterness lingers a bit then subsides leaving a semi-sweet, malty aftertaste. There is just a faint hint of staleness in the aftertaste but overall, for what it purports to be, it is very good.
The body is appropriately light with lively carbonation. The mouth feel is a little thin but I does have that nice lingering citrusy aftertaste.
This is another excellent, hoppy and flavorful "session ale". As the 12 pack box states, this is ideal for outdoor activities. It has turned very cold here, and I am satisfied to enjoy it indoors. I only regret I didn't buy a second 12 pack.

12 ounce can, packaged on dating on the bottom of the can. (7/30/2013=not super fresh)
Pours clouded medium amber, under a looser off white head, that leaves nice looking film and some delicate low sheeting.
Lime, ginger and piney hops on the nose.
Easy drinking pale, with more citrus, more ginger and more pine. More then respectable sessioner. Dry finish with more of the some notes I got on the nose and in the first few sips.
More quality beer in a can, nice.

Pale golden copper hue with a bright eggshell white head forming thick copious layered foam, fine speckled lacing left in even patterns with each sip. This is a great canned offering from Athens, GA. Floral, citric hop aromatics flood my nares, what a great smelling brew. Mild biscuit malt profile just enough to qualify this libation as liquid bread. Smooth balanced pale ale aggressive hops up front, a true session pale ale. Light bready qualities balance at the citric floral hop bomb that this low alcohol but high flavor ale has. Crazy drinkability perfect crisp bitter finish, with ample carbonation nothing is over done great beer. Overall a brew, I will buy by the 12 pack if given the opportunity.

Pretty amber color with a big foam head. Lace is patchy. Aroma is full of nice fresh grassy fruity hops and clean grains. Citrus and tropical. Taste is bright and happy. A little pine resiny, citrus, earthy and green. Grassy bitterness lingers. Texture is very liquid, smooth, and dry. I like this beer. A sessionable treat.
