Can at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA. Golden / bronze body. Clear with a small white cap. Aromas of pils malt, a hint of sweet, fruity notes. Grain and bread with distant floral notes and a clean feel. Easy to drink. Not too sweet. Light Saaz hop character. Solid.

jgb9348 (4859) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Crisp, very golden coloured body with a clear glow and a thick, four centimetre tall white head. Aroma of pale malt, alcohol, lemons and a bit of funk. Light-bodied; Strong lemony flavour up front with a hint of bitterness, some very light hops, a crisp apple flavour and the very slightest hint of metal. Aftertaste shows very light and airy flavours with the malt and lemons commanding the most taste. Overall, a nice and very refreshing and easy-drinking beers that still shows a lot of character and depth, especially for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Lebanese Taverna market in Arlington, Virginia sampled at home in Washington on 27-September-2014 - Thanks Kevin!

12 oz. can. Courtesy of a fellow vacationer up here in Maine. To solo cup. Pours gold with a one finger off white head. Bready malt aroma with a light background of hops. Flavor is lightly sweet with a biscuits and honey flavor. Light grassy hops and a faint spice note. Medium bodied. Goes down real easy. Enjoyable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a yellow-gold color with a small fluffy white head that faded quickly but left decent lacing. The aroma was faintly tangy and citric with a hint of bread. The flavor was tangy, tart and citric with a bit of bread dough, sour malts and artificial sugar. Medium length finish. Medium body. Pretty awful.
