Dark gold with a sassy white head. Not a real stickler for lace or retention. Star bedecked can in the San Diego Chargers powder blue scheme.

Grassy, almost musty, bready aroma.

Tastes snappy with grassy Lemon Zinger tea. Tangy Sunny D-lite citrus. Progressively more bready as it warms. Tastes like a beach beer!

Hooray for cans.

Skeptically picked up a 6-pack at Green's-Midtown. Poured into a pint glass, and the golden-straw colored ale was topped by a nice fizzy, fluffy white head. The head slowly dissipates after a few sips. Smell of faint wheat malt with a slight whiff of cucumber. Tastes like a well balanced hybrid of an american pale ale and a wheat ale with a zesty, slightly fruity finish. An excellent summer beer, in my book, and I could easily have 5 more.
