My local, frequent in-person trade, tone77, recently dropped this off for me in his latest batch of beer in support of The CANQuest ™. I am always anxious to see what he has for me when he stops by!
From the CAN: “D.C. United 2014 Home Matches [:] 03/08 Columbus Crew 03/29 Chicago Fire 04/05 New England Revolution 04/12 New York Red Bulls 04/26 FC Dallas 05/17 Montreal Impact 05/21 Houston Dynamo 05/31 Sporting Kansas City 06/07 Columbus Crew 06/28 Seattle Sounders FC 07/20 Chivas USA 07/30 Toronto FC 08/17 Colorado Rapids 08/31 New York Red Bulls 09/27 Philadelphia Union 10/03 Sporting Kansas City 10/18 Chicago Fire”; “Best When Fresh Vamos United 04/10/14”; “CANs: Infinitely Recyclable (SM) – Pack In. Pack Out[.]”
I was anxious to CANduct the Crack! and begin an inverted Glug because I wanted to wash out the taste from an earlier beer. It all came off without a hitch and I netted two fingers of dense, bone-white head with good retention for my troubles. Color was a deeply-hazy (but not quite cloudy) Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 – 5). Nose had an interesting fruitiness. I thought that I picked up grapefruit initially, but then I started getting softer tropical fruits. The taste was incredibly mild and eminently drinkable. I got a light tropical fruitiness on the tongue, but not much else. This was unobtrusive, but neither boring nor bland. It would be a great beer to have at a pre-game tailgate party or to drink in the stands, IMHO. Finish was semi-dry, more towards dry than sweet, but low-intensity in any case. Tasty.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is biscuity, malty. Taste is mild, some malts and grains, refreshing but a touch bland. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent warm weather beer, but just seems a little bit lacking.
