Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. No dating info but just released so I know it's fresh. It was a cloudy light golden honey color. A few lazy carb streams and come sticky lace. It had a good sized off-white head that stuck around for awhile and settled into a thin film and collar.

The aroma was malty and sweet with really no hop presence. The taste followed the aroma. Crisp, clean and drinkable. Good session beer for hot days. Also probably a good BMC conversion beer. Mouthfeel had a bit too much carb.

Overall, a good beer that I mildly recommend if you can easily find it (especially if in a buddy's fridge). For me, it doesn't have enough flavor to warrant buying many unless on tap and limited choices or a friend has it.
