Slightly hazy light golden yellow in color. Forms a large bubbly head that quickly falls to a bubbly surface coating. Some patchy lacing. Aroma is little more than carbonation and graininess. Taste isn't much more exciting: light yeast quality along with a tingy metallic twang. Maybe a bit of grassy hops. Rather dull and unexciting. Light bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Very mild bitterness.
A fairly unexciting beer. Couldn't see justifying the purchase of this one again.

Poured from the 12oz. can into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass.

The color is a clear yellow/gold with a lot of foamy white head. As soon as the can opened the foam was overflowing.

The smell is grainy with a few touches of bitterness. There is an off aroma that smells a bit clay.

The taste is a bit grassy and leans toward the traditional hop flavor. The the malts hold up the balance and let the earthy flavor squeeze through. There is little more to the flavor but it does hit the right notes.

The feel of this beer is light and has a nice smooth finish. There is a nice crispness that brings on a nice refreshing feel that goes well in hot weather.
