Very easy drinking blonde ale, cool-fermented. It’s crisp, it’s well-balanced, and has just enough hops to make it interesting without being a huge bomb o’ bitterness. My complaint is that it’s almost too easy-drinking; very little stood out with the aroma or palate. It wasn’t bad -- in fact it was enjoyable at the time -- but it was unremarkable.

Can de Kaggie: Pours school bus yellow with a big fat white head. Smells sweet and candyish, hay and banana, and whipped cream. flavors are hay like with essence of fruity esters, like apricot and papaya, and some soft, balancing bitterness in the end. Nicely balanced with no off flavors. Not bad for what it is.

Refreshing, good beer for the beach. Don’t see a lot of microbrews coming in cans but these guys do it and it seems to be working pretty well.

Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - DEC 17, 2009
The first point and really only valid point i’ll make here is cans are much easier to jam in your suitcase and survive the trip, no broken bottles that leak all over your chones, nuff said. I liked this beer, refreshing, not much of an aftertaste, citrusy and clean. Can is retro and all so way to go with that if you like that stuff, pick some up.

bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Can courtesy of Cavie. Pours a hazy straw color with a very ambitious head that leaves a nice lacing behind. Aroma is slightly sweet, corn, honey and wheat notes. Taste is predominantly sweet, the result of bread, wheat and corn flavors. No bitterness whatsoever in this beer. Features an extremely short finish with no aftertaste at all.

argo0 (12928) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 13, 2009
12oz can, thanks CaptainCougar. Medium white head atop hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, some cantaloupe. Taste is moderately sweet, melon, some bread. Light-medium body.

JoeinDahlem (1440) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2009
Thanks Al. Can pours a dull, murky orange beer with a decent white head. Sweet nose, fruity, something like an orange creamsicle. Tastes a bit sweet with moderate bitterness. Full body and creamy mouthfeel, but not as creamy as it might be thanks to firm carbonation. More sweet than dry in the end, with some alcohol warmth. Unusual beer, but lacking something in refreshment and balance.

AmEricanbrew (6636) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Clear amber with an off white head. Honey malt, light sourdough grainy malt aromas. Rich full mouthfeel. Grainy pale malt flavor with honey baked bread. Decent.

beerbill (3601) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2009
12 oz. can courtesy of a trade with blutt59. Pours a hazy antique gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Aroma of grain, very mild honey and just a hint of corn. The flavor is malt and mild honey. Very light bitterness at the finish. No problems here.
