From a 12 ounce can at the end of a hot spring day, this is a hazy golden color with a slim head. The aroma is grainy, with some grass and a hint of distant fruit (peach?). The taste is balanced, with notable pale malt flavors. The body is medium-light and there is a solid balancing hop bitterness. It's okay, but not outstanding.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. This beer is a crystal clear golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma is almost non-existent with some grain noted. The flavor is watery. A good beer to drink is doing session work.
