Poured from a 12 oz can into a Becker glass. Moderate hand. No identifiable date.
A: Hazy, golden yellow body. 1 finger of coarse, white head. Ok retention. Pretty nice lacing.
S: Faintly citrusy, fresh hop odor. Cracker. Light grass. Subtle corn. Touches of tropical fruit.
T: The opening is hop bitterness intermingled with a light, pale malt sweetness. Grain notes develop before a semi-dry finish. No significant alcohol presence. Fairly clean with a bit of lingering hop in aftertaste.
M: Moderate carbonation with a moderate body. A tad fuller than your average lager/pilsner.
O: Nice lager with a decent crispness. Balance is skewed somewhat towards the hops, but I found it apt. Good showcase of the hops noted on the can (Columbus, Mosaic). Solid summertime session brew for your next outdoor event.

I was down in DC this past weekend to partake of DC Beer Week, which is where I scored this and several other CANs in furtherance of The CANQuest ™. I dedicate this CAN of an “All-AmeriCAN Classic” to the late Ayn Rand, who knew that in Union, there is strength.
From the CAN: “Just the Thing to Make You Sing”; “All-AmeriCAN Classic”; “This Land is Your Land Recycle This CAN”; “In honor of the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key’s penning of The Star Spangled Banner just outside of Fort McHenry in Baltimore, we’ve brewed up this easy drinking, all-Ameri[CAN] beer. Our take on a classic Ameri[CAN] style, the Cream Ale, this light golden ale is brewed with Ameri[CAN] grown barley, wheat, corn, and oats and lightly hopped with Columbus for bittering and a kiss of floral Mosaic. This all-Ameri[CAN] classic is just the thing to make you sing!”
I love hearing the Crack! since that is one of the many things that make CANned beer so special. It was yet another brimful CAN and to celebrate, I CANducted an inverted pour. My efforts created two foamy fingers of soapy, bone-white head that fell fairly quickly, leaving great lacing in its wake. Color was a bright sunshine-like Yellow (SRM = 4) and by “bright”, I mean NE-quality clarity. Nose had notes of grapefruit and pineapple and my mouth was watering. Mouthfeel was medium. The nose really translated to taste in this case. It had a light grapefruit bitterness initially, followed by a pineapple sweetness in the mouth. Finish was semi-dry, not really sweet enough to be CANsidered otherwise. Tis was a great Summertime beer, easy drinking and one that I could have used this afternoon when doing yard work.

Poured on tap into a pint glass. Pours golden straw a tad cloudy with a fluffy white head. Smells of sweet grain, a little fruitiness. Tastes of barley with a little bit of hop bite, mainly piney. Beer is light bodied and extremely drinkable, nice carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.
