johnnnniee (2732) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Oil can purchased at the Mobil up the road. Dark golden bordering on amber with a dense rocky white head that shows moderate retention. Sweet bready biscuity flavor and aroma with a hint of earthy hops. Light toffee and mineral water flavor round this out. Pretty plain not horiibly complex but straightforward and somewhat crushable.

Sekemoto (20) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
Pours clear amber with a big creamy white head. Aroma of grain, malt and corn. Tastes of grain, malt, corn and caramel. Thin body. Not great.

joeneugs (3979) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 7, 2015
750 ml can from Safeway. It pours a super clear light amber color with a huge frothy head that shrinks to a reasonable level within a minute. The aroma is weird and tangy with some strong herbal hops, metal, hints of fruit and caramel. The flavor is pretty much the same. Mild caramel and fruit up front followed by surprisingly strong herbal bitterness that clashes with a harsh metallic aftertaste. The body is pretty weak. If I had this at a small craft brewery, Iíd say itís a pretty decent attempt at an English Pale. Not offensive, but certainly not anything to write home about. I wouldíve liked it better without the harsh herbal and metallic finish.

foyle (300) - Wyoming, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Sampled from 25.4 oz can in pint glass. Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy off white head that drops slowly. Color is a clear amber with abundant carbonation. Aroma: mild with bread being dominate, some caramel and a bit of earthy/floral hops. Mouthfeel: medium and slick with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: bready malts dominate, some caramel sweetness with a definite hop presence. Overall: decent, but certainly not outstanding.

BucannonXC5 (1036) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Type: 25.4-oz. can Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: Vons in Pacific Beach (San Diego), Calif. Price: $2.00 (w/ Vons card) Purchased: Dec. 22, 2014 Consumed: Dec. 22, 2014 Misc.: Best by May 11, 2015 Poured a honey, orange, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki white, frothy head. An average amount of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention. (Sight - 3.25) Smell was rather bland. Worked for it and got light caramel, grainy malts and apple. (Smell - 2.50) Tasted bitter, boozy, metallic malts up front. Also some red apple, sugary caramel and earthy grains. (Taste - 2.88) Medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Bitter, abrupt finish. (Feel - 2.50) Not a big fan of this beer, especially for the style (Beer Advocate labels it an ESB). If it was an AAL, I might have it a tad higher, but just not that good. (Overall - 2.75) 2.76 65 C

ajnepple (3116) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2014
750 ml can from Biggie Wine & Liquor, into a pint glass. Orange and clear appearance with a fluffy white head, light lacing and active carbonation. Mild aroma of lightly toasted grains and some earthy hops. Flavor is mildly bitter and lightly sweet, not too much going on. Light to medium body with ample carbonation. Better than their lager, for sure.

andrewje41 (1178) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2014
25.4 oz bomb of a can. Typical grainy, corny aroma. Really light grassy flavor, but surprisingly drinkable. I could session on thus stuff. According to the can, I got some tabby topper to play. Iím sure Iíll drink this again someday. Enjoyed the experience.

trapped (1207) - New York City, TURKEY - NOV 23, 2014
Can. Pours clear amber colored with small creamy light beige head, doughy aroma, flat watery taste despite the high carbonation, little bit of malty taste, abrupt finish. If there is a light ale, this must be it!
