Poured a 355-ml can into a pint glass.
Appearance - golden yellow colour with sharp clarity and lively carbonation. Very little head except for surface bubbles despite an aggressive pour.
Smell - fresh, sweet, creamy scent of malt and bread. Almost a brown sugar and butter element.
Taste - tasty, not too sweet, balanced and a velvety light malt finish. My particular can was pretty cold and the flavours have begun to open up as it warmed.
Mouthfeel - pretty smooth. Big Rock offerings look like their very active but they turn out to be big softies. Not bad at all.
Drinkability - you can pound away on a few of these without any problem. A good beer for the summertime evenings.
Serving type: can

Can poured into a shaker pint glass, a pale straw yellow with billowing white bubbles, exactly as I remember this beer from my grad school days when it was a staple at the pub, complete with horrid citrus wedge floater. None of that this time, although after concentrating on this beer's flavor I can kinda understand where the urge to apply further seasoning comes from. Aroma is sweet and buttery, more so than its counterpart Big Rock Velvet Fog, with a saccharine fruitiness that recalls fermented apple juice, faint lemon and lime rinds, and white bread barley malt ... No real wheat spice on the nose although there is more of this on the palate, with apple and faint lemon starting things off and musty white peppercorn spice showing up late, along with a little root cellar funk and metallic notes. Thin, fizzy yet with a diacetyl slickness, and generally unoffensive and easy drinking. Finishes semi-dry. I prefer Velvet Fog, which has more wheat character and a more assertive flavor period, although with this style of beer we aren't expecting anything too robust. I have a few more cans squirreled away for a sunny day.

Had this while on a cross Rockies hiking and camping trip.
This beer poured a nice clear, light gold colour with a good white head and nice lacing. The aroma is somewhat sweet, with a slight malty note and a nice background of banana. The taste is sweet wheat flavour with a light to medium bodied mouthfeel.
This beer is a very drinkable beer, with a nice aroma and mouthfeel.
Serving type: on-tap
