3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy gold, poured in such a way that, unfortunately, no head foam was created. The aroma is almost wheaty with that earthy bready tone, something like cleaned potato, and blonde malt grains. The taste is full bodied with a strong blonde cereal tone, light breadiness, and pilsner grain biscuitiness. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a nice frothy two centimetre tall white head. Aroma of pale malt, light alcohol, the slightest bit of sugars and a very mild, low alpha acid hop scent. Light-bodied; Strong malt flavour with a bit of caramel and sweetness coming through and only a mild hop bitterness and a mellow wheat taste. Aftertaste shows a pungent malt flavour and a very light finish with some light fruit and sugars and no bitterness at all. Overall, a nice lighter styled beer with a decent profile, but no real complexity or depth. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Corner Store (Bait & Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida on 30-December-2013 sampled in my hotel room on New Years Day, 01-January-2014.

12 ounce can sent in a trade with GreatDane1632. I let this get too cold. This is golden and quite hazy. An off white head. Fruit in the aroma with a bit of malt. The fruit is tasted first. They are tropical. Some light caramel and bread.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a cloudy light gold with a thin white head. Some yeast particles float in the beer.
Smells of really sweet bready malts. No hop presence at all. Hopefully the taste is better cause this thing smells awful. I kind of thought it may be skunked until it tasted fine.
Bready malts coming through on the taste, but not nearly as overwhelming as the nose. Just a little hop bitterness which is about right for the style. A little pungent bitter aftertaste is detectable.
Fairly light mouthfeel although good and creamy for the style. Good carbonation, but not overdone as on a lot of lighter ales.
Overall this is a solid offering, especially since it comes in a sometimes more friendly can format, as long as I don’t have to smell it much. It still doesn’t close to unseating Sun King for my go to lighter ale.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden pour retains more lace than expected. Sweet malt bomb aroma supplemented by a basket of mild hops. Smooth taste of creamy malt and subdued hops. Low carbonation for the style. Decent for a canned session beer, I guess.
