A session strenght sour in a can? Yes please.

Pours medium yellow with a redish tinge. Soured fruit notes with no hoppiness in the nose. Taste is wonderful. Light sour with a bit of lime and spice to back it up. Finished pretty dry. High carbonation which is a bit different but works for it. Overall a great Saturday afternoon six pack.

Pours out a hazy brass with no head. Smells largely of grain and lime. Lime and salt are the big flavors here. Lightly tart and a bit sweet. Grainy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a tad flat and lightbodied. Overall, this is OK in the can. Way better on tap, but I'm rating this based on the can example. On tap it seemed to be drier, tarter, and saltier (all better in my opinion).
