So who is of the assumption that beer in a can can't taste good? If you think that, you're cheating yourself of some pretty awesome microbrews. Oskar Blues flagship brew served out of the can. Take a six pack with you hiking.

Appearance - A dark amber color. It's murky. The head is foamy and laces the glass as it settles. Ready to rumble...

Smell - Malts: sweet caramelly Hops: a blend of floral and citrus scent going on. Can catch the scent of a strong yeast on the back end of a good whiff

Taste - This brew has a hefty hops profile. Slightly piney and citrus. Malt flavor is mellow and subdued, a tad bit caramelly A little yeast aftertaste

Mouthfeel - Thick, not bubbly at all. Leaves a sticky pallet

Overall - Beer in a can! I love this stuff! My favorite Pale Ale. Some might say the hops profile is too hefty, but the malt and yeast aren't slouches either. I love heavily hopped pale ales. Oskar Blues revolutionized the microbrew market by refusing to bottle and putting their brews in cans. Take it with you anywhere! Highly recommended.
