While I have had this one many times on draft and in the bottle, this is my first time with the can (500 ml tall boy).
Poured into a standard pint glass. Alot of foam. Head retained throughout with some nice sheet lacing too. Light straw color which is a bit lighter than the usual Euro macro pils.
Not much smell; can pick up some faint grassy tones.
Taste is solid for a macro pils. Nice spiciness with the malt backbone prevailing at all times. Nice balance.
Mouthfeel is very good, almost creamy. Probably my favorite attribute of this brew.
Overall this is a very drinkable beer, great for a humid summer day, as is today in NW Connecticut.
I really think this beer is good in a can. I have had the bottle version many times, and while they use brown glass, the can version is devoid of any skunkiness and I think provides for a creamier mouthfeel for some reason.
My new beer of choice when I want to dip into a Euro macro Pils.

3.85/5 rDev +11.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Light straw. Good carbonation. Decent head that goes away rather quickly.
Smell: Light malt, light hops, and just the slightest hint of skunkiness.
Taste: Malt with a nice touch of bitterness from the hops on the finish. There is a flavor there that I can't quite place, but I find it rather appealing. Nothing off-putting.
Mouthfeel: Clean. Crisp. On the light side of medium bodied.
Overall: An enjoyable beer that is perfect for warmer temperatures. One that I would definitely buy again.
