12 fl oz. can, with no apparent freshness date present. Acquired this oddity as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. I have had other beers from Wild Onion Brewing Co. before and I remember enjoying them, so I'm excited to have this.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Pours a big bright beautiful orange colored body with some tiny specks of sediment and two and a half fingers of fluffy creamy doughy off-white head. Very nice scattered lacing. I gotta say, this looks pretty damn good.
S - Smell is very fruity and floral. Lavender, honey, yeast must, bread dough, some herbal pine, and a slight anise sort of spice in there somewhere.
T - Taste brings in more of the same: dry earthiness, honey, biscuit malt, herbal / floral Cascade hop bitterness, & some lemon / pine citrus zest.
M - Feel is smooth & creamy, crisp & light, with some dry herbal piney bitterness on the finish. Extremely light-bodied and easy drinking, with good carbonation.
Overall, I thought this was a great pale ale. Definitely everything I think a pale ale should be - light, crisp, refreshing, & hoppy. I'm not sure why this has such poor ratings. I guess Wild Onion is pretty small though, and not many people are able to try their beers. I however, will look forward to more.
