Definitely as easy drinker, wishbit was a tad less malty and a tad more hoppy! But definitely a great chilling out fishing beer.

16 oz can poured into willybecher glass no canned on date.

A: Small white soapy looking head that settles quickly. Body is a fairly clear slightly hazy Amber color.

S: Get a light tangerine smell and then a musty smell.

T: Some of that light tangerine fruit comes out and then it is muddled with a musty almost unfinished Homebrew taste.

M: fairly good carbonation and medium bodied for such a low Abu.

O: This beer is average at best. It has a lot of flavor for being 4.8 but that flavor isn't that good. It drinks like an unfinished home brew.

From the can. Sampled on November 19, 2016.

It pours a slightly cloudy medium amber-orange color with a small white head.

The aroma is an inviting mixture of toasted or roasted barley malt, apricots, peaches, and green grapes.

The body is medium but there is a slight acidity to it.

Not as many fruity characters in flavor as in the aroma but the roasted barley grain character is firm and followed by a moderate dry bitter bite. More bitter than I expected it to be.
