Freshness date of July, bought in August. Too bad I didn't realize this until I was at home.

Head was a nice white, but it faded down quickly. The color of this beer does not look like any light beers I have seen. It is almost an amber colored orange (if that makes any sense). The balance between hops and malts is very good. The mouthfeel is wonderful, as I just want to let it linger in my mouth for a while before drinking it. Very clean and refreshing.

This is definitely the best light beer that I have had and it really packs a lot of flavor. If the label didn't say it was light, then I would have never guessed it to be a light beer.
