Good, just not amazing. A run of the mill blonde ale with some hops layered in. I much prefer Send Help by 4 Hands, or something similar.

This brew, from a 12 ounce can, is extremely pale, with a thin head and a light haze. The smell is soft and subtle...grain and pale malt, with some background fruit. The taste grows on you..some sweetness and malt flavors and a bitterness in the mid taste. Light in body, but very drinkable.
