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.

Nope. Never again. Got this one for the road as a single at the beer store, and instantly regreted it. Nothing to it, just a not very good beer that I will not try again. Cheap but gross... that's a choice you will have to make, there is always keystone light.
