"Microbrew in a can! What will they think of next?"

Okay, first off, no "Ffft!" from the can when you pop the top. VERY disconcerting! I know, I know, micro, low-carbonation, all that shizzle, but, even more than bottles, when you pop a can of beer, you expect a crisp-sounding crack and a hefty puff of gas. I propose inflating the can with some Nitrogen to alleviate said psychological letdown.

To alleviate the can-guzzling disappointment, I suggest pouring this beer into a glass. "Ah! There. Now we're back to normal."

Hey, hey! No wonder this had no fizz. This is a serious ale! Hoppy, smelly, cloudy, and...pretty damn good.

Too bad it comes in a can.

-from notes
Poured from a "stovepipe" can into a glass

Pours a very nice cloudy copper-orange with a one-finger, foamy head that leaves some light lacing.

The aroma is subtle; grassy, with a bit of lemon.

The taste is marvelous. I get some pine and grassiness up front with a hint of sweet nuttiness and bready malt. There is a nice, lingering bitterness.

Really like the feel of this beer. A little smooth with a nice mouth-coating quality.

Overall, a really good beer that I wish was available to me on a regular basis.
