12 oz novelty can from Giant Eagle on Route 8 in Pittsburgh. Borderline light beer with the accompanying lack of taste or body. Has its own refreshing qualities and the can is unique enough to warrant a try.

Best before August 19, 2013.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with a golden hue, the head is decently sized with a white color and bready texture. There’s a huge mess on the glass here as the head dissipates.
Aroma: The aroma comes off spicy with a little lemon sweetness backed by mildly sweet malts.
Taste: Right away a bright spicy, florally and lemony hop presence hits providing a mild bitterness and a prominent flavor, malts appear quickly as well, balancing the hops into a dry finish.
Palate: Medium bodied, lively carbonation.
Overall: This is a nice refreshing beer, nothing stand out, but it drinks nicely and the new can design is great for outdoor activities.

Can. These cans are a great invention. Poured a clean gold with some white head and lace. Nose of grass, grain, lemon. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Light bitterness.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 Sixer of cans, mine at 4.9% abv. Sweet and lightly floral soft nose, pours clear pale yellow with a creamy bright white head. Taste is medially bitter, actually surprised me at how bitter it is, firm and stripping to the tongue. Has a touch of mineral and a touch of metal, but more bread/pretzel, especially in the aftertaste. Crisp medium-full body feels heavy but the noble hops are just super soft here. Reminds much more of a north German pils than a southern Helles, and is perhaps a touch too aggressive. Quite simple but a killer in a can.

Welp, crushed another sixer. This may be my beer of the summer.

Can shared by b3shine. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate hop and dough malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

12 oz. can shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Pours a clear gold color with a white ring for a head. Aroma is malty- pale, bready, cereal, straw. The flavor is not as dry but sweeter. A little banana candy. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Good helles.

Sample from a 12oz, "full-aperture" can. Thanks b3shine for sharing. Clear golden color. Good thin white head. Little loose lace. Doughy, bready aroma. Hint of banana. Good, smooth lighter body, lighter carbonation, more dry texture. Light bitter, kind of sweet taste. Tasty and refreshing. Very nice golden lager!
