12 oz bottle. Had it on tap prior one other time, but a well balanced ale that finishes with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable.

Had this out of a pick six picked up from the brewery in Norfolk. A good, but unsurprising gold ale. The sweetness isn't overbearing which is nice. Clean feel, dry finish. Overall a good beer, but nothing to write home about.

Golden orange in color. Somewhat clean in appearance. Light lager flavors include toasted malt, grain and light earthy hops. Perfect palette cleanser beer. Could crush a ton of these in the summer time but they're not that good.

Served on tap at O'Connor Brewing Company in Norfolk, VA. Pours a golden, well-carbonated light body with a small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is grassy with some hoppy accents on the edge. Taste is dry hops with some maltiness on the back end, fairly heavy carbonation on the tongue. A mildly above average blonde ale.

Green can is O Connors cheapest beer. It's a little bitter, but so are a lot of their beers. If you are at the brewery ask them to mix it with an el guapo, it's called a redneck, not terrible and believe it or not evens things out.

A below average blonde ale. Has elements of pilsner and flavors of what I typically associate with an alt bier. The net result does not come together as cleanly as it could. For me this is a pass.
