Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of wheat, some lemons. Taste is of biscuit malts, light lemons, a touch of wheat, highly refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good summertime thirst quencher.

12 oz can from WV.
Pours with a moderate white head.
Mild but complex aroma and flavor. Yeast, hops and grains all on display with a pervasive light spiciness.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Pale orange body color, slightly hazy in appearance, with a touch of clarity. Head creation is barely two fingers, with a quick dissolve, and a simple thin puck and collar of white.

Aroma is pretty non existent of anything. Faint touches of a little bit of citrus and lemon, and not much really else.

Palate pretty much continues this trend. Neutral malt presence with some decent depth but little flavor. Slightly weak grains, almost flour like in the malt bill, but not quite. Not much defining character here at all.

Not always the biggest fan of this style, and here it's just not even getting any semblance of quality going on. Not with a fault, but just bland and boring with nothing going on.

Pours a semi-hazy pale gold color with very little head into a pint. The smell is slightly citrus. The taste is sweet, crisp and has a very pleasant fruity sweet aftertaste. The more I drink this brew, the more I enjoy it. This is definitely a great summertime brew, look forward to many more to come.
