473 mL can with some code on the bottom; served in its namesake glass. Pours a brilliantly clear gold, with high carbonation and a half-inch white head that leaves a bit of lace. Smells of sweet doughy malt and corn, with a dash of herbal hops that go piney and citric as it warms. Very clean entry on the palate, with grainy/sweet malts and a few esters. Nearly devoid of hops, and carbonation is the main flavor here. Very light and crisp, with lots of carbonation and a short finish. Definitely mislabeled by today's standards, but I'm not sure this would have been considered an IPA even fifty years ago. However, if you go into it thinking "regional macrobrew" (think Pabst or Narragansett), then it's not too bad.
