Clean, light body. Citrus aroma. Citrus taste with a touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. Good choice for drinking outside in the hot weather.

From a 12oz can with date of 28MAR17. Pours a clear yellow/gold. Nice citrus, hoppy nose with a touch of dank. Nice, crisp palate with a little bitterness. A really nice, refreshing ale for the summer.

Out of a can and into a wine glass. hazy, golden in color. 1 finger, tight white head. Light, crisp and bitter. Some sweetness. Some wheat and fruity flavors. Not really flavorful or particularly good, but it's ok on this hot day. Summer sipper for sure.

Simcoe apparent in aroma but not prominent in the taste. Bitterness lingers, but not unpleasantly. A fine summer quencher, and a cool looking can!
