Good malt backbone, just enough hops to notice. Smooth.

Dayblazer has a thick, white head, a hazy, straw-gold appearance, some bubbles, roiling tiny tan sediment bits, and moderate glass lacing. Aroma is of white bread and a bit 'o honey. Taste is similar, with a medium body. Crisp finish.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, the date on bottom of can is "08 APR 2018" which I believe is a "best by" date.

APPEARANCE: pours a cloudy, light golden color with one-finger white head, good retention that slowly settled until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, there is moderate lacing on the glass, medium carbonation,

SMELL: some bread and sweet honey, faint to the nose.

TASTE: initially sweet honey and then bread and faint hops.

PALATE: light body and medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a bland, lawnmower beer, why would a craft brewer make a beer to compete with Bud Light? I don't get it. I'm glad I bought only one as part of a sampler six pack, this beer is not for me but I would recommend to anyone who likes Bud Light, Coors light, etc.

Very bland beer - light cracker malt, light citrus hops, etc. perfectly fine for a day at the beach or the ballgame, but it certainly doesn’t have a lot of depth
