look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12ounce bottle then into my beer glass

A- deep yellow with a thin, creamy head that is leaving nice lace.

S- crackers with a nice floral note. Maybe a soft hint of citrus also

T- well balanced. A little bready at first quickly followed by light floral hop. Finishes kind of dry with an enjoyable hop aftertaste.

M- kind of creamy with seemingly low carbonation?

O- It is what it is: a nice, simple, easy drinking EPA. When you drink this you won't be tempted to dissect it; you will say "mmm" and want to drink more. This is a nice summer ale. Highly recommended for sitting on the porch, fishing, or just hanging out.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: can
