Poured from a can with an enjoy by date of 6/28/14; into a tumbler.
Appearance - bright yellow, bubbly carbonation; a thin white sheet of head that sticks around and leaves lots of lacing.
Smell - lemon, some banana and orange peel.
Taste - lemon and orange zest, some banana bread.
Feel - light, of course, flavorful early on, but an odd aftertaste and tounge coating to finish it off.
Overall - not my preference, but in a pinch I'd take a can or two to the pool.
