Since I'm a ChiSox fan, this was a must buy. For a Golden Ale, it was pretty on point. Light, refreshing, some fruitiness, and a pleasing bitterness to round it out. Not bad. But I may be a little biased.

12 oz can, best-by date of 06/29/21 stamped on bottom, poured into a pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy golden color with a half-finger head that receded to a thin film.

S: Light fruity sweetness with just a hint of mild hops.

T: Smooth doughy malt sweetness up front. Hop bitterness is a little more intense than the nose would suggest. Certainly adds complexity, but perhaps undercuts its goal of being a summer crusher just a bit.

F: Medium bodied, well-carbonated, smooth finish.

O: A well-balanced ballpark beer. Tony LaRussa would approve.
