I honestly read some reviews before trying this beer, just out of curiosity. I didn't think it was as bad as the reviews generally painted this beer out to be.
A - Pours straight golden with a white, frothy head. Little carbonation in the can, but the foam blooms when you pour. Retains decent lacing, if that's any indication of a good beer.
S - Scents of hops, fresh milk, a sort of cleaning product scent but in a pleasant way. Decent.
T - Bright, citrusy, like lemons, followed by resolution of malts on the back side of the flavor. A bit salty, but not bad. Nothing about this flavor screams "craft" or "unique", but who cares, it still tastes good. Hops don't overwhelm, although they're present throughout. Strikes me more like a lager rather than an ale.
M - Good, clean and refreshing; maybe it's the can.
D - Good for sessions, or multiples. Goes down easy, nothing to complain about.
Serving type: can
