From the can: 16:30 09-22-1 (not sure if the year date stamp got rubbed off or if it never made it on)

Appearance: Good transparency, only slightly hazy, light golden body with a thick fluffy white head, great lacing. Visible carbonation.

Aroma: There is a light floral hop aroma; very pleasant! There is a bit of a sugary smell to it as well...it's a bit hard to describe...but, well it just smells like sugar. I get some of the grain in there too, very similar to Cheerios.

Taste: The grain flavor comes through very nicely. Again it has a cereal flavor that is accompanied by a spicy but light hop flavor. The hop flavor gives it just enough juxtaposition to keep it interesting against the sweet cereal backdrop without being rough or imposing. The aftertaste is a light honey-like flavor.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is nice and smooth. It feels about average...perhaps a bit low on carbonation but it feels alright. It's light on the palate.

Overall: I really would recommend this beer if you like lighter beers that have a good amount of flavor without being overwhelming on bitterness or sweetness. This is a nice light beer that sacrifices neither hop nor grain flavor in its overall construction. I am very pleased that I bought this and I will be picking some more up!
