Can. On the opacity scale, it gets a 6/10. Has a concave, soapy head. It leaves Christmas donations on the glass. Tis' the season unfortunately. It smells like a Finback beer. They have a certain way about them. Rarely very intense. The grapefruit shows up abreast. Almost has a gin/juniper element to the nose. I get the grapefruit but I am beginning to think that this brewery's beers have a base flavor that the can't (or don't want to) escape. Very much like a beer a had earlier from them. Tastes like Finback. The past few I have had are not impressive for the price they ask.

great Citra/Mosaic nose blast. Hazy Golden color. really well balanced malts and grains with a dry citrus taste and a little bit of a peppery bite. One of the stronger recent Finbacks. Mouth is a more carbonated than I expected, but overall great. The brand is not known for creamy so to be expected.
