16 ounce can, I've had this in the fridge for a while so I have no idea how old it is or when I bought it. Head retention is decent, and there isn't much lacing. Served in a pilsener glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy dark gold color with almost an inch off-white head. The brew smells like bready and caramel malt, along with some light herbal/minty hops. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's also a bit of apple and pear noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's smooth and a bit coating with moderate carbonation. I thought this was a solid overall brew. I'd like to try a fresher can of this in the future. Worth a try.
