Poured from a 12 oz. can. And yes, that can did come courtesy of the sultan of canned beer, woodychandler. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of light hops, grains. Taste is floral hops, some sweetness, a touch dry at the finish. Feels medium/light in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Grassy, oily hops dominate the taste, feel and smell of this brew. Delightful nose preview, but lagered malt is almost imperceptible. This tasting from a bomber, I should note, was significantly less satisfying than previous tastings.

Six pack from HomeBrewStuff. Nice alternative to session IPAs and APAs. Light with mild hoppiness, clear golden with soft, foamy white head. Mostly lager characteristics in aroma and taste, with hop bitterness at the tail end. Perfect summer brew.

Not a fan. Tastes like a hoppier miller lite with a not so good bitter after taste.

Just not good taste like generic lager with a taste of ear wax posing as some form of hops
