I will readily cop to an unfamiliarity with this series, especially since I CANpletely missed out on Series 001. 8=( That said, I am always CANurious as the owners/proprietors/staff of The Beer & Beverage Shoppe in Lancaster, PA know quite well. I walk in & they begin to trot out all sorts of arrivals & other desirous beers. I happened to see three of this series & when I inquired as to the fourth, it was sold out. 8=( No matter! I'll take one of each of the other three for the advancement of The CANQuest (tm).

From the CAN: "Ale brewed with Key Limes and Vanilla".

I did everything that I thought that I should: a) I did an in-CANgitation; b) I put any potential lees back into suspension; c) I employed a heavy-handed Glug to ensure that all lees would be in suspension, The result? A finger of dense, foamy, rocky, tawny with very good retention. Color was a slightly-hazy Amber to Deep-Amber/Light-Copper (SRM = > 9, < 13) with a slight haze. This is NOT a White Ale, despite the brewery's label assertion! Mouthfeel was soft, about on par for the style. The taste was very mild, not at all assertive, It had a definite vanilla presence, but it was a steep drop-off after that. Lime? Where? Anything beyond white bread & vanilla? Not really. Finish was semi-sweet, but what an exercise in boredom! YMMV,
