Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "canned on" date 5-1-16.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear pale, yellow color with less than one-finger white head that quickly dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, medium carbonation, there is significant lacing on the glass.

SMELL: white crackers and sweet honey, faint to the nose.

TASTE: initially sweet honey and crackers then a light hop kiss at the end.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a good beer, a little sweet for my liking but otherwise good, this is a safe beer to serve a large variety of guests, anyone who likes beer would enjoy this, great Fourth of July beer.

-This beer pours a fairly clear straw with a largeish head. The aroma offers very light crackery malts with a hint of spice and bright fruitiness - kiwi, peach, and honeydew melon. The flavor is light, with sweet crackery malts, and quite a lot of the fruity hop character. The mouthfeel is very light and fizzy. Overall this is an enjoyable beer - the outright hop fruitiness is and interesting feature. However, it becomes less pleasant and too sweet as it warms - drink quick.

Can. Pours all pilsy and nice. Aroma stresses soapy hops, clean malt and strong lager yeast. Rather aromatic. Flavor is a potent kick of Euro hops off the bat; hoppier than most. Then comes the traditional lager yeast and pilsner malt flavors. Really drinkable. I did not waste my money on this six pack.

Pretty but quickly dissipating head, non-distinct aroma, light yellow wheat beer appearance, citrus piney lingering bitterness, easy drinking and great (believe it or not my palate judges this way) "burp" flavor. Easy drinking at 4.7%
