I am not a bigger summer ale guy, but this is one of my favorite beers for a sumner cookout or on the beach.

I have had it both straight out of the bottle and poured from a can into a pint glass.

Both ways it is great.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a 2 finger head.

Light enough for a hot summer night but smooth, creamy and tasty enough to be considered a good tasting beer
