12oz can. Canning date is stamped on bottom rim as '08/30/21'.
Cloudy, pale gold colored body. Thin white head and cap. Leaves a few small spots of lacing.
Aroma is toasted malts and fruited honey.
Taste is flat, but expresses toasted malt, some sweetness. More of a floral hop presence. Malt in the aftertaste.
Medium mouth feel. Good carbonation.
A drinking beer when conversation is more important than paying attention to the brew. Tasty, smooth and pleasant.

12 oz. can from friend - date is January 23, 2019. Poured into Kane tulip glass.

L: 2F or so head. Not a whole lot of retention, leaves spotty lacing and a thin ring and cap. Beer is a mostly-clear copper with visible carbonation bubbles.

S: Getting mostly citrus notes and some cracker malts.

T: Pretty much the same as nose. Light citrus, somewhat malty and yeasty. Halfway to a lager, but still on the ale side. Finish is neutral and a little less crisp than I would like.

F: Light body, very well-carbonated. Would expect crisp, refreshing, and drying, but still a bit watery and unbalanced.

O: It's an OK blonde, just not a whole lot of taste to it.

Had this while staying up on Kentucky for a week. Out of a can. Decent. Lacking flavor. Medium carbonation. Low bitterness.. Still better than the generic macros, but doesn't stand out in the craft world. Given the situation and lack of options this was a good choice, but otherwise average.

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Has a bright glowing, hazy yellow hue, decent retention and lacing, and high carbonation. Some floaters are present.

Aroma mainly consists of citrus notes, along with especially grain and dough.

Taste is pretty absent of the aroma, tastes almost like a macro ale. Mainly orange peel and a mild grainy and doughy flavor. Feels somewhat watery.

I'm trying this at the white squirrel in BG, KY. It poured a hazy orangish with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of cracker. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with biscuit tones. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it's ok.
