Pours an effervescent gold with a pinky of pearl colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Bready, grassy, pears

T: Folllows the nose, a little dryness & lemon as well up front. Doughy, crackery, yeasty, grassy as this warms, along with dryness, plus pears. Finishes dry & grassy

MF: Light body, fairly firm carbonation

Drinkable enough, but bummed I picked a sixer of this

Bought a 12-pack cans $13.88 Safeway
Clear golden color
Medium-light carbonation
Light mouthfeel
Sweet malts with some bitterness from hops
Overall an ok beer. Nothing exciting. Not worth a premium price.

24oz can (seriously brahs?) poured into 12oz tulip. Poured a clean, clear light gold color with over an inch of fluffy white head that had retention and light-moderate lacing.

The aroma had the grain/yeast/light hop scent of a basic "American beer". Flavor profile was pretty similar, nothing stood out, nothing detracted. The body was crisp and light, with a dry finish. Drinkability was good, for what it is. Overall, eh, good enough. Try it for the tick, but it's nothing worth seeking out.

Tastes like a good AAL. I understand why this is so popular in CA, it might become one of my go-to beers this summer. Light enough to chug, but interesting enough to keep me coming back for more.

Light amber, sparkling clear. Light head and lacing. Very vague aroma, just beery in a nice way. Tasty with an almost lager-lightness. Malt-forward, light mouthfeel and great carbonation. FW is well known for some pretty potent brews, nice to see them with such an enjoyable ale. This would be a great choice for a summer weekend afternoon lunch.
