355ml can - my first from yet another nascent Cowtown (save your letters, Patrick!) brewing concern.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale golden straw colour, with three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and mildly creamy eggshell white head, which leaves some decent streaky cloud pattern lace around the glass as it slowly evaporates.

It smells of dank pine resin, muddled domestic citrus rind, grainy and crackery cereal malt, a lesser exotic fruitiness (pineapple?), and more leafy, weedy, and floral green hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy pale malt, some orange, tangerine, and white grapefruit citrus pith, still indistinct exotic fruity notes, and more leafy, herbal, and piney hoppiness.

The carbonation is average in its palate-pinging frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and generally smooth, with a wee airy creaminess arising as things warm up a tad at this particular juncture. It finishes trending dry, the malt faltering in the face of the lingering hops.

Overall - this comes across as a pleasant enough version of the NE-style pale ale, definitely more frooty than bitter, and easy to put back as we swing back into another week of sweltering summer temperatures. Beer - good; sweating all the time, not so much.
