Pours nice golden color with plenty if creamy white head. Very lite in feel and taste. Overall a nice craft beer replacement for light beer drinkers. Good for a hot summer day if served very cold.

16 oz single can for $2.75 from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Slightly hazed golden-orange appearance with an off-white head and light lacing. Pleasant aroma of toasted grain and zesty hops. Similar flavor, fresh, juicy, mild zesty hop bitterness and light malty sweetness. Light bodied with a crisp, pretty clean feel and a light hoppy finish. I feel like I crush a few of these pretty easily.

Can compliments of Nick... Thanks! Consumed directly from the can, beer appears piss yellow and mostly flat. Aroma is floral hops, biscuit, and buttery. Taste is buttery, some tropical fruit hoppiness, and grainy malt. Carbonation is lacking. Probably. Great session beer when fresh and carbonated, still not bad in the state I had it.

16 oz can pours a hazy golden with a white head that fades quickly. Light biscuit and hops in the aroma and flavor. A little hint of butter. Nice, light, and extremely sessionable.

Can. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I really wanted to like this...a 4.1% golden quaffer. And honestly, it’s not that bad. But it just isn’t trying very hard. Aroma is about as simple as it gets...raw hops and little else. Very thin and watery in the mouth, but fairly well-balanced. Seems like a very simple recipe that they just "threw hops at"...for a lot o’ folks, that’s probably enough, but this doesn’t do anything for me and I’ve never like that raw, resinous, grapefruit rind hop odor. Still, this could have been much worse (or much better), so at the end of the day it’s at least average. But perhaps the biggest problem is the ridiculous price...$3.50 per can! For a beer this simple and skimpy on ingredients, that’s just plain highway robbery and diminishes any utility this could have offered as a cheap, thoughtless, session beer. So dumb.
