Can: Poured a cloudy pale yellow color ale with a nice large pale white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of floral citrusy notes with some subtle tropical notes is enticing. Taste is a nice mix of floral citrusy malt notes with some light tropical notes and pale malt notes. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Could have been more hops dominant but very enjoyable nonetheless.

L- Pours a hazy bright yellow hue topped by a 2 finger white head. Good retention and lots of lacing.

S- Tropical fruit is the dominating aroma here (mango and pineapple specifically).

T- Not getting anything other than the tropical fruit from the hops, but that isn't a bad thing. This stuff is freakin' delicious. Very mild bitterness yet incredibly well balanced.

F- Body is pretty light without being watery. Carbonation is moderate.

O- The perfect embodiment of a India Session Ale or American Session Ale. Intensely flavourful beer paired with a light body and an ABV of only 4%. Definitely will be picking up some more of this stuff as soon as I can!

Pours a hazy pale straw color with a lovely thumb's worth of head. The head breaks slowly leaving some nice lacing. The smell is fruity and citrusy hops. Taste follows the nose, as the citrus begins to shine. Feel is lightish with good carbonation. The drinkability of this beer is off the scale, such an easy to drink and flavorful beer.

If you are looking for a nice session beer and can give this a whirl, do so. Very tasty and refreshing.

Bright yellow, crisp, clean and opaque. Two finger head, bubbly and airy. Nice lacing but minimal.

Muted nose, some tropical flavours punch through. Odd mouthfeel, rough around the edges. Sweet and mildly bitter finish. Very quick and dry. Really fades when warmed.

This is the third Trailway beer I've sampled from my CANBIF box, and I must say that I'm super impressed. This is a bright yellow, fruity session ale. Refreshing, with a great malt/hop balance that absolutely hits the mark.

Deep hazy and cloudy dark straw color with light activity. Slightly foamy beige 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with decent legs. Flavors of lemon, pineapples, soft grapefruits, wheat, sweet grains and floral hops. Slick and oily full body with crispy carbonation. Medium strength finish, highly tropical, slightly dry and leafy. Dominant lemony feel, very fresh with zesty yeast, and lightly spiced. More like a session IPA than APA. Quite tender and filling. Well intensified, balanced, while very tasty. Overall very good quality craft.

A super nice beer to drink. I don't have this one in the locality, but I can get it at a store 25 hours form my town. Not so bad.

This one is fruity (grapefruit) and is just perfectly refreshing.

Very quick, dry taste. We can taste tropical fruit but not too much.
I look forward to this summer as this would be the perfect season for this beer.
