12 oz can pour. Pours a cloudy apple juice color with no lasting head at all. A faint fruity aroma. Flavor is semi tart with a mild fruit flavor. A really light, super easy drinking, crisp beer here. Good beer to kick back and drink while watching the game. Pretty good.

Can: Clear golden pour with a small white cap that dissipates quickly. Nose of pilsner malt and grass, on the sweeter side. Less noticeable malt in the taste, a little grassy, and a little sweet. Hints of the abv, even at 4.7%. Odd. Not terrible, but I canít say that Iíd ever want this again.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Can. Nose is grassy and rubbery, stale air with light but clear autolysis. Pours very pale clear yellow with medium carbonation and a creamy foamy bright white head. Watery light body with a striking and strong first note of peanut butter crackers (the kind you get six to a little plastic pack) and some fruit, grassy, touch of onion. Low bitterness, a touch more sweetness, and not perfectly clean. Honestly, this probably should not have been released, but once my palate adapts to the numerous flaws, itís fine going down Ė in fact, Iíd definitely have another; itís easy-going and has more character than BMC-types (and Iím not afraid to double up on those), sits well.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
4oz sampled at Medicine Hat Beerfest 2014, from a can. Very hazy lemony yellow. Grainy aroma and flavour with a faint tartness, a bit sweaty, very low bitterness. Just ok.

Thin, but decent

Ferris (4992) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
Draft - Light grains and sweet honey. Pale gold with a thin white head. Tastes just as it smells, again the honey really stands out.

exeter (357) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Pours a light straw colour. The pour brought 1 inch of head became a micro-head with no lacing. I taste grains and grass with a little malt. Has a tart after taste like grape skins. Very light. Laughing dog has done better, I feel that dog laughs at me!

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2014
12oz can pours with a clear light gold body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma is a mix of grainy malts, grassy herbal hop tones, kind of a woody sense, biscuit malts, some lemon and a hint of floral hops. The aroma has lots of thin layers but it doesnít meld and work all that well. The taste has firm herbal grassy notes that pick up floral hops and some earthy leafy shrubs. Some weak Pilsner malts show up from time to time as the hops bring a moderate degree of bitterness. For me the hops provide a nice balance but the they seem to be heading in different directions flavor-wise. Or maybe my palate needs further adjustment to deal with this sort of hop bill. An odds Pils.

presario (4708) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 11, 2014
6-pack of cans. A craft answer to macro mainstream rather than a crisp hoppy Pilsener. OK in a non distracting "Letís watch hockey" kind of way. Darker amber. Smooth with light hopping.
