12oz. can into Heady Topper stemless snifter.

Pours a foamy 2 finger white head with moderate to low retention. Beer is a semi-cloudy grapefruit. Lacing is spotty and sparse with no cling. Average for the style.

Nose is mellow sweet peach and just the slightest touch of sweetness and a sprinkle of spice. Pretty subdued.

Opens bright. Sweet malt body with a crisp, clean and slightly tart finish. Nice hop bite right at the end. No aftertaste. Solid.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down crisp and refreshing. Clean finish with no aftertaste. Very quaffable!

Easily better than anything Bud, Miller or Coors has ever put out. I'd drink this. January is just not the right season for it for me.

A big thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, some citrus. Taste is crisp, grapefruit, light hops, refreshing and smooth. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is solid brew, one I probably would have enjoyed more in the summertime.

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.

Prost!

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.
