Sometimes it's worth cause it costs 1.79 for a 16oz. But still...

From a can with a nitro widget.

Appearance: When pouring it has this neat appearance where bubbles swirl all around the inside of the glass. I'm guessing it's from the nitro widget. The body is transparent and amber with a thick creamy white head.

Aroma: There is a medium strength spicy hop aroma. It's nice smelling.

Taste: Extremely watered down when it comes to flavor. It has this extremely mellow bread flavor and a very light herbal tea hop flavor, but it's very light. It tastes like somebody mixed half a pint of ale with half a pint of water.

Mouthfeel: Well it is extremely drinkable, because it's a lot like drinking water but much smoother. There is a very light bite from the hops.

Overall: Pass on this. It looks great, smells good, and is very drinkable...but it just doesn't have any flavor at all! I won't be buying this again.

I really like the way this one looks as its poured fron the nitro can. Big head that dissipates slowly to finally settle to a half inch head that stays to the end. You do get a creamy mouthfeel with this one that is nice bet there is no visible carbonation. There was, for me, no detectable hop bitterness. There is a different taste to this that some seem to not enjoy but that I just found to be unusual. A mild low abv choice that pairs well with a lot of food styles.

Nice color to it. No bitterness. Smooth and creamy texture. Lacking in taste, tasted watery.
