Pours gold color , thick head that goes away pretty quick. I really like this beer and the price is great! I wish there was just a little more hoppines to it.

Pours a translucent dirty orange color.
Little to no head on the pour.
The smell is light with hints of sweetness.
The body of the beer is very thin and watery.
Taste upfront is caramel sweetness that turns into day old water (kind of stale, but still drinkable).
The aftertaste is unoffensive with a slight lingering note of caramel.

Get the bottles, tastes significantly better. Not bad for a "cheap" beer but make sure it's nice and cold.
