12 ounce can, packaged on dating on the bottom of the can. (7/30/2013=not super fresh)

Pours clouded medium amber, under a looser off white head, that leaves nice looking film and some delicate low sheeting.

Lime, ginger and piney hops on the nose.

Easy drinking pale, with more citrus, more ginger and more pine. More then respectable sessioner. Dry finish with more of the some notes I got on the nose and in the first few sips.

More quality beer in a can, nice.

Pale golden copper hue with a bright eggshell white head forming thick copious layered foam, fine speckled lacing left in even patterns with each sip. This is a great canned offering from Athens, GA. Floral, citric hop aromatics flood my nares, what a great smelling brew. Mild biscuit malt profile just enough to qualify this libation as liquid bread. Smooth balanced pale ale aggressive hops up front, a true session pale ale. Light bready qualities balance at the citric floral hop bomb that this low alcohol but high flavor ale has. Crazy drinkability perfect crisp bitter finish, with ample carbonation nothing is over done great beer. Overall a brew, I will buy by the 12 pack if given the opportunity.
