I am sampling a chilled bottle that my pal and BA Stopper brought over last nite. I pour into a pint glass and the beer is ultra light gold color with just a hint of fizzy bleached white head foaming up. The head fades pretty quickly and leaves little evidence of its presence.
The aroma of the beer is husky grain and general sweetness, kind of caramelly but also like cane sugar.
First sip reveals a lite bodied average carbonation beer. The beer is crisp and clean and generally refreshing.
Flavor starts off rather sweet and sugary but not overwhelmingly so. Rolls to a lite grainy malt and ends with just a hint of spicy hops.
The beer is decent and better than I anticipated upon pouring. I could drink several of these and not get tired of them. PRobably very nice on a hot day!

.5L can into craft pint

A- Light gold, and clear. White head looks good after pour, but doesn't retain well.

S- Sweet malt, a bit of honey. Not much hop aroma.

T- Malt forward, sweet bread. Slight hop snap to balance.

M- Sweet, light, smooth, wet. Easy, easy drink.

O- Sweet pils, lager. It's really nice.
