Can. Aromas are lemon, lime, grass and biscuits. Tastes moderately bitter. Lots of grassy hops, some light floral and lemon taste too. Crisp finish like a lager. Pretty nice.

Pours a pale yellow with a foamy white head (I dropped the can, so the head was very foamy for a while). Aroma is grassy and citrus. Flavor is lemon and sweet bread. Crisp. The can had me curious and Iím glad I gave it a try. Very good.

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Can at home purchased at Sicilianos in Grand Rapids. Pours light yellow with one finger of white head. Aroma is citrus with some lemons. Flavor is fairly sweet with corn lemons and hay. Nice refreshing beer. Nice that it is in a can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from a can, this beer had a medium yellow-gold pour with a touch of haze and presented a white, lasting head for a cover, it left nice spots and rings of lacing on the glass, the aromas were average /medium lemon and citrus hops with a little herb, light bread with a bit of grain, and a faint powder sugar like sweetness in the background, it had flavors of citrus and spice hops with light bread/grain, and a light sweetness, the finish had a light to medium hop bitterness with light malt notes, the mouth feel was light and easy, it had average carbonation, a light cream beer with nice hops that are very present on the nose and add a nice bitterness to the finish, I thought the hops gave a nice balance to the bread and grain flavors, there was little sweetness in this cream ale which I thought made this beer a good drink for when working in the yard, a nice thirst quencher.

ARH (830) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2015
12oz can poured into a plastic cup. The aroma has a stone / mineral water quality to it, as well as light, dry spices, and oranges late. Itís kinda murky and pale with a foamy, creamy white head that leaves lot of lace and retains a thick ring. The taste is a medium bitter and medium sweet. The creamy, oily beer as a soft fizz carbonation, and a medium light body with flavors of bread, citrus, and mineral water. Thereís a light spicy, clove note as well as a crisp tonic water note to the finish finish. Itís kinda dry and the finishing notes linger lightly for a brief period joined by a grain-like hint. Clean and refreshing.

Can. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of citrus and tropical fruits with a sweet grain and a hint of cookie backing. Flavor has sweet citrus with a touch of grass and a creamy grain backbone.

12oz Can at The Fitzgerald - Eagle River, MI. First of what will be many cans, I hope. This is working for me. A slight orange citrus aroma hop burst right away and then an easy, light and refreshing clean cream ale base follows, without undo bitterness. My memory lacks detail on the malt character, but I remember a lack of house character and straightforward clean pale malt flavor. Looking forward to revisiting.

MrBunn (2573) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Can. First off, funniest name either. Body is a light gold with lots of carbonation and a thin film of a head. Aromas of light lemon and a little honey. Flavor is weak and beery but uninteresting.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, bread, cracker, light honey, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of citrus hop and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, bread, cracker, light honey, and floral earthiness. Slight earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, bread, cracker, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and robustness of citrus hops and pale malt flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good cream ale. Good balance and robustness of citrus hop and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Sweet and bland. Clear golden color. Little hop influence. New, small brewery is trying for unique brews, but this doesnít score.
