Pours a light golden straw, nice white head that faded, but left a nice laceing.
Aroma is lemony and fresh.
Taste is citrusy in a lemony, slightly sour way, nice bitter flavor, finished dry and pleasant.
I was surprised that the mouth feel was more on the medium, fuller-bodied side of things.
I find this one to quench my thirst, no matter if it's right out of the fridge, or if it has rested a while.
Not sure if this is contract brewed, as the can says Wilkes-Barre PA. I bought my 12-pack at Lancaster Brewing Company on Plum Street in Lancaster.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a light golden color with a one finger of pure white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave some foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell is very light overall with just some hints of a biscuit nature as well as a little bit of a grassy and citrus smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and slightly grainy taste mixed with some lemon citrus flavors. As the taste advances it gains a bit more graininess with the lemon getting a bit stronger as well. Some lighter hop flavors of a grassy and floral nature as well as a decent amount of grapefruit show up mid taste, bittering the flavor a bit A light tangerine sweetness joins the lemon and malty flavor at the end, leaving a slightly grainy and more sour/bitter citrus flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the thinner side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are quite appropriate for the style and match well the citrus and grainy flavors of the brew, making for a more refreshing drink overall.
Overall – A rather decent kolsh, that is fairly refreshing and crisp, but that is nothing super out of the ordinary.

12oz can poured into pint
Clear golden straw yellow pour with a frothy cap of bone white head. Fades out into a collar of film with little lacing. Bright grassy hops and a dash of citrus in the nose with some pilsen malts. Hops brush the tongue up front with biscuit malts and lemon peel. Mild backbone, snap of spice, refreshing and crisp on the tongue. Clean finish, lighter body, decent carbonation.
High value, excellent drinkability, refreshing during the warmer summer days. We brought some of these to recent bbqs and beach parties where they really hit the spot. Plus it's $30 for a case, which is ridiculously cheap for a craft beer case in Center City Phila.
