Can. [thanks mum & dad]
Pours clear pale golden with a small, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet, quite malty, some maize notes and citric hops. Medium carbonation, little bubbles, fairly dry. Flavour might be a bit thin, but there is actually a fair amount of bitterness. Malty sweet and the bitterness is light citric and quite flowery. Fresh and drinkable.
