Pours an effervescent honey color with 3 fingers of ivory colored head. Above average lacing & head retention

S: Bready & grainy notes, plus a bit of green apple, some perfumy hops as well

T: Much doughiness, bready sweet malt & a touch of lemony & grassy hops up front. More grassy, grainy & bready notes as this warms, nice pear fruttyness & a touch dryness & lemony hops too. Finishes dry with grainy breadyness, some lemons & a touch of honey suckle & Golden Delicious apple; almost pulled a 4.0

MF: Light/medium bodied with soft carbonation, good balance

Drinks easy. I like this better in the can versus the draft versions I've had; almost seems like a different beer. The draft version struck me as more like a Mexican Lager type deal with some rough notes. This will be in the rotation if I can find it around here...

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Thanks to ThirstyHerf for this can!

Nothin' like ending a long work day with a sixer o' Sooner brews, eh? Starting things off with this one. It pours a clear pale straw topped by more than a finger of bright white foam. The nose comprises lemon rind, light wheat, and a bit of rice. The taste enhances the lemon, adding a bit of the fruit's flesh, and softens the wheat a bit. Some mild greens seem to have snuck in there as well. The body is pretty light, with a moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, a solid light brew, one that goes down far too easy for its own good. Not bad.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, malty. Taste is also mild, bready malts, light, floral hops, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall not a bad beer, but seems to be lacking any punch.

The beer pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is has some nice biscuit malt notes, as well as some grass and a hint of citrus from the hops. The flavor has a lot of the same notes. The grain and biscuit malt notes add some sweetness to the beer. There is a little bit of pepper and some grass and earth notes. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

16oz can courtesy of russpowell. Thanks Russ!

It pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a 1 finger head of foam and looks to have some good lacing.

The smell is pretty Pilsener like with some sweetish malt and light hop bitter notes. Some grain in the background.

A nicely applied balance of hops and malt with the sweet flavour just nudging out the bitter. Slightly vegetal as I get deeper into the session. Again, this tastes sort of like a Pilsener; whatever, it's a good brew.

Light bodied, medium carbonation, nicely drinkable. I see on their website that they are celebrating their 2nd anniversary...cheers Coop Ale Works!

Pours a clear yellow golden color with white head. Cereal grains and hay on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with cereal grains.

thanks to ThirstyHerf for the excellent extra in the hype train BIF.

a - opened the can and poured the cerveza into my capt lawrence taster tulip. poured a clear crisp yellow with a super frothy head that bubbled away leaving frothy residue. looks kind of thin.

s - cerveza indeed. kind of a sweetened slightly fruity version of a BMC.

t - oh wow, pretty tasty. very easy drinking beer. probably a great gateway beer from BMC to craft since like the smell it is a sweeter and more fruity flavorful beer but with a tingle of that BMC characteristic.

m - body is pretty good. easy drinker.

o - overall, if this was local, i could see myself bringing this to a lot of parties. like i mentioned, it is kind of BMC-ish, but with some flavor added.

A: Very pale gold with an airy head of foam that quickly fades away.
S: Sweet malt aroma, no hint of hops.
T: Fairly sweet malt taste, clean, without graininess. Very low bitterness.
M: Light bodied, soft texture.
O: About as inoffensive a beer as you can get. A true insult to the horny toad, which is a lizard of character.
