16 ounce can, no freshness date.

Can started gushing upon cracking. Pour yielded a massive 5 finger head that slowly dissipated to about 3 fingers. Color was a crystal clear yellow.

Aroma was dominated by the malt base defined by bread and slight caramel sweetness. Earthy and grassy hops were at the back end of the nose.

Taste generally follows the nose with a better balance of grain and hops than the nose. Finish was a very odd sweetness that lingers, not pleasant.

Mouthfeel was crisp with low bitterness, doesn't quite clean up the palate. Carbonation was on the high end.

Overall, this was a below average American Pale Ale. Every can I had from the the 4-pack was over carbonated, so I wonder if there was something off with this batch.

On tap at Champps at the Detroit airport. Poured into shaker, appearance is clear amber with a bubbly head that leaves lacing. Aroma is herbal hops and cereal malts. Taste is grassy, herbal, some light fruit, hint of malt sweetness. Medium bodied, crisp and thin texture, active carbonation, bitter finish.
