Poured from a 16oz can with a best by date of 2/3/2018; into a pub glass.
Appearance- gold with a snow globe of sediment and bubbles; head is a thick white tower of yeasty foam. Lacing is thick and sticky!
Smell- juicy tangerine, mango and peach!
Taste - the juicy fruit is not there unfortunately, more of a dull earthy profile.
Feel - dirty and bitter mouthfeel.
Overall- what starts out very strong, fades just as quickly.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber with a nice, sturdy head that leaves dots of lace all around

Smell: Graham cracker and citrus, with a hint of tropical fruit

Taste: Graham cracker malt underpins the citrus, with some grapefruit as well as tropical fruit tones of papaya and lychee; moderately bitter and somewhat piney, through the middle; the finish is rather balanced though it leans toward the hoppy side

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Very drinkable, with good balance and a tilt toward the west coast

Pours a regular lager yellow, aroma has hints of pine and hops, little citrus or malt there. Taste just is not "Hoppy" enough for me.

Pours a somewhat cloudy deep straw color. A tiny bit of sticky lacing. Aroma is fresh, dewy and citrusy. Taste is also citrus heavy, Feel is medium bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, I really liked this - very drinkable and I actually like it more/am not even close to tired of it after 3 pints...now that's a good sign.

Grabbed a single sixteen ounce can from Cedarville Wine and Spiritsee in Plymouth, Massachusetts for three dollars and twenty five cents. I think that I had this brew before, a long time ago, in a bottle. Solid brew, would not seek out, but would definitely buy again.

Four pack copped from Barnstable. Pours a copper ruddy hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of hops and citrus. Similar overall flavor profile.
