16oz can served in a pint glass. Dated 12/17/18. Gift from a friend at work.

Pours a very pale yellow, very hazy, medium head and medium to high carbonation. Adroit Theory could learn something from this -- Mandela looks like a bunch of their beers, except this doesn't have the off-grayish color, which makes Mandela much more attractive to me. Smell is fresh bright and fruity. Smells like a mild but indistinct tropical juice.

Taste is brighter and juicier. Has a nice dry finish, but not a ton of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is very dry and very light. Overall, very good beer.
