12oz can into pint glass. Drank the rest of the six pack from the cans.

Very nice golden color. Not much of a head but left a white lacing down the glass.

Excellent, excellent clean beer smell. Malty goodness.

Not overly sweet, but good bready malts finishing with a nice hoppy bitterness.

Light but not overly carbonated. Very smooth finish.

This is an awesome, basic beer when you just want a straight up beer. Highly drinkable. Also really dug the open top cans. Good job Sly Fox.

Good. Nothing fancy, but tasty and sessionable.

Pours pale yellow with a fluffy head and lots of carbonation. Smell is grainy and bready with a kiss of hops. Flavor very light, grainy with a bit of noble hop. Mouthfeel is quite light. Great summer beer
