look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

one of the great summer beers of the northeast, and now that its canned, its even better. a light golden color, clear, with a creamy white head. it smells like pilsner malts, English ale yeast, and a crisp fruity juicy hop finish, more than is common in a summer brew. in taste, I get a nice combination of lighter malts, as well as some citrus fruit, ruby red grapefruit mostly, but a little lemon too. a touch of spice from the yeast is evident in the finish as well. effervescent carbonation is this beers best feature, it keeps it light and bright, summery. clean finish, ill take another please!
