12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A minimal head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Toasted and slight sweet Maris Otter malt follow by herbal and slight orange citrus hops.

Taste: Chewy and crunchy bread, pale malts, herbal, and slight hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: As for an EPA, more earthy and fruity notes would be good.

3.41/5  rDev -6.3%

Appearance: AWESOME! Beautiful copper finish, crystal clear. Good head retention and nice lacing

Smell: Good hoppy aroma. Nothing outrageously great about it - maybe a slight undertone of vanilla

Taste: Good, but not grabbing me. Definitely has some pale ale hoppiness to it, but nothing that is really grabbing me

Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy, but I'm left with some bitterness that takes away from it

Overall: Looks better than it tastes. I bought a six pack of cans for taking to the golf course or drinking on the riding mower while cutting my grass. More than good enough for that (better than the typical Yuengling or Heineken you find in cans), but I think I'd rather buy Six Point in cans for that for now on.
