Canned, this is VERY different than bottled! It's noticeably fresher - more yeastiness, more like a home-brewed beer. Some lightly roasty malts in the flavour that I haven't noticed before. More yeast, though - bubblegummy fruity pear-like ripe fruits, with a trace of butttery diacetyl distinctly noticeable.
Doesn't seem as hoppy, though. It's not particularly bitter, nor citrussy. Some citrus, along with the sweet crystal malt with the IBU's makes for an almost marmalade-like character to it, but none of the fresh dry-hop sort of flavour that I remember in the bottled version.
Serving type: can
