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%

Pours a darker golden yellow with a finger of white foam.

Toasted malts and biscuity sweetness, crisp, earthy and herbal hop notes.

Spicy/herbal noble hop bitterness, toast, and biscuits.

Light-bodied, high carbonation.

Overall, a crushable lager but nothing great.
