Light golden yellow in color. Clear in appearance. Super refreshing. Simple grain, touch of citrus and grass. Clean, crisp and light. Perfect pizza beer.

Fresh Catch is a beer that reminds me of home. From the first sip to the last this beer is worth every penny. @$10 for a 6 pack of tall boys there isn't a better deal for the taste

Pour a crystal clear pale yellow. Smells of sweet biscuit malt and a mild hint of citrus/grapefruit. Taste is a bit underwhelming. Very crisp and clean. Kinda bland for my palate. Mouthfeel is medium carbonation, thin body blonde ale. I was a bit disappointed with this because I thought the Citra was going to be more upfront. Brewed to style. Not a terrible beer, just not the one for me.

From the 16 oz. can. The stamp on the bottom reads C138-130129. Sampled on April 28, 2018.

It is most definitely a clear, golden pour with a boisterous white foamy head that eventually dissolves to a ring with lacing.

The aroma is pretty straght forward and typical of the style. IO get biscuit sweetness, toasted bread, grass, but little in the way of citrus considering it was brewed with citra hops.

Light to medium and smooth body.

The taste is perfect for a warm day. Something to have after working in the yard or cooking a barbecue. Toasted biscuit sweetness, mild grassy hop finish. Clean ending. Nothing that blows me away but it makes me anxious for summer.

I really wanted to love this beer. I love the price ($10/6 tall boys) and the idea- A crushable pale that is kind of like an american adjunct lager but better. I loved the first one; the nice, fresh blast of citra hops, the crisp finish, and light body were fantastic. It tastes like a british pale ale, but lighter.

There is something off with this brew though. I'm not quite sure if it's the aftertaste, mouthfeel or what, but I couldn't finish the second can and switched to another beer altogether. The next time I drank one, I couldn't make it halfway through the can. Same with the next time after that. I see the sixth can haunting me from the fridge and I just can't do it. I got completely tired of this beer after only 1.5.

With that said, I fully intend to pack a bunch on the boat this summer. It could just be that a crisp summery beer like this needs hot weather to be fully appreciated.

16 oz can poured into a pint at my home in Boston on April 18, 2018.

A - Brilliant clear gold with a big fluffy head that looks like it could support the weight of a nickel

S - Barkley husk, grain mill and then a beautiful pop of citrus

T - Classic old school grain with a nice sweet new school hop finish.

M - A tad under carbonated for my personal taste, but otherwise clean,

O - A very crushable offering for the spring and summer months. A great option for the beach, lawnmower, ballgame, non-craft...really, just a damn good beer. 'Gansett's seasonal's are really a pleasant surprise, both for taste and value ($10/6 pack of 16 oz)

By including the word ‘fresh’ in the name, the boys in RI did it right. Just a nice, smooth, well balanced beer. Not heavy and the perfect beer to go with that lobstah’ that is pictured on the can, or for a relaxing day on the beach, boat or patio.

Pours a mild golden hue with a one-finger head into my glass. Sweet with a touch of citrus from the citra hops in the nose. Clean, crisp taste with good dose of citra hops at the back of the throat. Finishes clean. I'm surprised by this hella-decent example of a blonde ale.

I really liked this...it was unexpectedly akin to a nice British bitter with good mouthfeel and taste.
