Thanks to woodychandler for this one. Poured into 9oz Pilsener glass. Poured a lightly hazy golden yellow color with just a thin cap of white head that quickly dissipated. The beer had very carbonation and nice bubbles floated up throughout the life of the beer.

The aroma featured nice malt and wheat upfront, some tangy yeast throughout and just a slight hop zing in the background. The flavors were pretty well the same, with the addition of a nice tartness that gave a nice counterpoint to the grains.

The body was smooth and crisp. Drinkability was very good, the 16oz can was gone far too quickly. Overall, a nice brew. A decent take on the style. Worth trying if you see it.

Draft offering at Old Forge. The brew appears a pale straw yellow color with a fizzy white cap. As the cap fades, it leaves a webby lace pattern sticking to the glass.

The aroma is fruity with a hint of grass. A pleasant clean noble hop character is evident but not dominating, it provides a pleasant nuance.

The taste is crisp with that noble hop flavor making itself evident just like in the aromatics. It produces a minor grassy to earthy bitterness.

This brew is crisp with a snappy level of carbonation. It is light bodied and downright poundable. This isnt something I would get thirsty for all the time but it would make for an awesome yardwork brew or a stepping stone brew for people looking to make the transition from macro.

A thank you to woodychandler for as he cantinues to provide me with canned beers. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malt, wheat. Taste is crisp, wheat, some malts and lemon, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking summertime beer.

I had a mis-start with The CANQuest (TM) as I wanted to jump back into it in earnest and then mid-marking period grades came due and I had to figure out who was going on the Potential Senior Failure List, which trumped all, sadly.

It is a long weekend, I have no plans and I am emptying the CAN backlog, so if such news is of interest to you, please stand by.

From the CAN: "We strive to honor personal craftsmanship. Our handcrafted beer is made in small batches to ensure quality and peak freshness. Brewed and [CAN]ned by old Forge Brewing Company, Danville, PA."; "Endless Summer Ale is a light-bodied, low-hopped, pale golden ale, with some wheat and lightly toasted malts to round out the flavor."; "Forging better beer".

The Crack & Glug came off without any setbacks, but the fizzy finger of bone-white head showed no interest in hanging around and disappeared like the dodo. Color was a VERY pale yellow with NE-quality clarity. I CAN understand the comparisons to Bud when a beer is this pale. Nose was interesting with a lemony tartness backed up by bite that wheat CAN impart. Mouthfeel was very soft, almost like it was from a cask and the taste was nothing like Budweiser. Sorry. Instead, it had a light-lemon citrusiness along with a wheat tang. This is going to be phenomenal over the course of the upcoming summer. Finish was slightly dry and very satisfying. Another win for the home (state) team!

Got this one as part of a mystery locals box from leftmindedrighty. Poured from pint can to dimpled mug:

Pours a clear, pale yellow with an expanding white, loose head. Pretty good lacing.

The nose is soft and sweet - subtle raspberry, corn, sweet malts, very light.

Kind of reminds me of a thickened up American macro - I definitely do get a pleasant raspberry flavor though. I'm not sure where this is coming from but it's nice.

Super easy drinking. This would be a great go-to session on a hot day.
