A- beer pours a transparent light golden yellow with a thin white head ring that quickly dissipated
S- aroma is spicy, with lemon notes and even a hint of citronella
M- The body is quite light on this beer, carbonation is high
T- dry crisp flavour with a smooth bitterness that leans heavily on lemon rind and subtle grapefruit
O-more flavourful that your standard, easy summer drinking brew

This was part of a drop-off/pick-up by/from my local, in-person trader, @tone77 who knows my affinity for CANned CANadian beers to further The CANQuest (tm).

From the CAN: "Hops: Centennial and German Magnum"; "Art: Nicolae Negura, Lisbon, Portugal".

It amazes me that I have a number of Collective Arts Brewing beers in my backlog & yet, this is not one of them! I felt honored to Crack! the vent on my inaugural CAN & begin a slow, gentle C-Line Glug. I watched in rapt fascination as it foamed up to form two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with excellent retention. Color was an oh-so-slightly hazy Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose had a slightly grassy biscuity maltiness. Another Pilsner-like Ale? Okay by me! Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but I generally expect greater body in/from Ales. The taste was very mellow, only lightly malty with a slight melon & citrus fruitiness. This was eminently drinkable & could make a great addition to the beach-bound cooler. Finish was semi-dry with not a lot of sweetness in evidence. This was quite unexpected & quite good. YMMV.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a bright golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, some bread. Taste is of grains, malts, some lemons, mild and refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall it's pretty mild but it's a decent beer.

This is my fault. I thought I was reaching for a Life in the Clouds, but I grabbed this by accident.
I had no interest in ever trying this and while it's not as bad as some of the mass produced garbage out there, I really don't see the value of this beer. The slight bitter malty taste is not much and it's not worth the time.
A forgettable offering.

Fairly clear light golden color, bone white head. Decent head retention. Aroma is slightly sweet, grainy, a little fruity - berry, white grape. Similar flavor, a touch sweet, no real hop bitterness. Thin to medium bodied.
