12 ounce can, w/o freshenesss info
Pour: Heavily hazed, darker apricot. Fluffy off white head that exhibits excellent retention. Leaves a frothy film, thick collar and thick sheeting, spots, bands and major blobs of lacing. Nice looking beer.
Somebody mentioned a buttery popcorn note on the nose and this is definatly on point. I dont recall another beer with a popcorn nose! I do also get some leafy, herbal hop notes.
On the palate, I get some herbal hops again, light citric fruit, a hint of smoke perhaps.
Light and refreshing pale ale, perhaps a bit thin and watery, but not bad and fairly enjoyable stuff. Nothing special, but sessionable and likely would be nice on a warm summers day with some cheese, bread and salads.
Nice that more and more decent beers are being canned. Hope this trend continues and continues

A - hazed yellow with two fingers of really bubbly white head, sporadic lacing.
S - Fresh cut grass, some a little lemongrass, very grainy though.
T - Very grassy, but also kinda soapy, some very light grapefruit traces.
M - Lots of carbonation, almost like a soda, chalky mouthfeel afterward.
O - Kinda let down by this one, lacking in flavor, and the mouth on this one leaves a lot to be desires.
