look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured a one finger off white head from a nitro can into a pint glass - creamy nitro head with some patchy lacing, retained a nice collar - light amber clear

The aroma is light malt, some corn syrup, bread, and grassy hops coming through

Taste is herbal grassy hops, corn syrup and stale bread, hard water, with pineapple and green apple coming through as it warmed

Light to medium bodied with little carbonation - a mineral hoppy bitterness and dry - nevertheless relatively smooth and with the abv no where to be seen it is highly sessionable

Overall, a very average brew with some odd nuances

A- Pours a pale yellow color with a thick frothy white head.

S- Malts, a few hops but mostly bread.

T- Few simple malts but mainly all I taste is bread and thus, it's not very complex at all. I would like to compare this with a Tetley's though.

Food Pairing- I would say butter bc it just taste so bready but in all seriousness, maybe something spicy since the beer is malty and bready, so maybe like a crawfish etouffee.

They had a single can from a busted open 4 (or 6) pack at the grocery store. Frankly, I forgot that I reviewed this on tap. What the heck. He’s try the Nitro Can version.

Upon opening the can, there is a little gush of beer that comes out of the top as the nitro can kicks in. A finger of creamy off white head forms and lays on top the beer like cream. This settles to a thin cap that stays for quite a white. The beer is a totally clear copper/gold color.

Aroma is very mineral like with some pale malt aroma. Slightly musty as well.

Mineral, mineral, mineral. Slightly doughy with a sweetness in the finish. What’s funny is that I still have a somewhat positive memory of this when I see it from years ago. But clearly, my tastes have changed and I am not a big fan of the mineral forward flavor.

Light and creamy mouth feel with obviously knocked down carbonation.

I was hoping for more hear and it seemed like a better idea than it actually was. Oh well, I tried.
