2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
No aroma on what appears to be an unfiltered blonde ale. Very light body and some vegetal flavors are not hidden. This beer is refreshing but not special and certainly forgettable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz can from a 4 pack.
A nice light gold colour with a 1 finger head of fluffy foam. Plenty of lacing.
The smell has some hop bitterness to it, grass me thinks, and a very light nose of grain. Itís a weak nose overall, I think the draught version had more character.
The taste is lightly to moderately light grainy with some lemon zest in the mix. A strange brew from the can; all the flavour seems to be up front and it fades like crazy mid palate on until just after the swallow where it picks up again with some slight sweet notes and a bit of hop bitterness. I like it but the impression I get is that this is on the lower end when it comes to calories, not that that is bad but it has a "Light Beer" feel to it.
Light bodied with very light carbonation. The mouthfeel could be improved with a tad more carbo.
Drinkability? Itís a Wyoming brew that, I think, has some potential to be better than it is. Thatís my 2 cents worth. Other than that, it is an easy beer to quaff and is somewhat refreshing. I prefer the draught but this isnít half bad.

Light in color and taste. Kolsch like- slightly fruity with a slight hop finish. Great canned beer to take fishing here in the Wyoming mountains

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big fucken can @ home, thanks to R@@@@@ for picking me this up in Lander, Wyoming. Pours a fairly clear, golden orange appearance with a tan head. Aroma is actually quite full of corn. Some spice in the nose as well. Decent mouth feel. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Dull herbal hops. Some plastic-y notes. Another disappointment from Wind River.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 16 oz can...poured in a Great Lakes Brewing tulip glass.
Golden with significant head and lace.
Aroma of straw hops and amber malts.
Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of straw hops, minerals, barley water, slight corn. Overall representative of the style...low malts and hops, slight sweetness, but there is something there (minerals, slight band-aid) that takes away from what should be easy drinkability.

16 oz. can. Pours a very hazy pale gold with a thin-moderate white head that is gone by the second sip and leaves no lace. The aroma is grain with some notes of orange and grapefruit. The flavor is grainy with some mild hops bitterness at the finish. Light-medium bodied.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 Appearance: pours a bubbly 2" white head that recedes fairly quickly. Color is a mostly clear gold with moderate carbonation bubbles present.
Aroma: fairly mild aroma. There is some sweetness from the toasted barley and a hint of spice (from the hops I assume).
Mouthfeel: light and watery with the standard fluffiness of an ale. The finish is somewhat dry.
Flavor: mild sweetness from the barley as well as a mild fruit flavor akin to plum or apricot. The hop bitterness is mild but does linger a bit in the finish.
Overall: This a very pleasant session ale. It is highly drinkable and has a pleasant, easy flavor.
