Tall can from Liberty Beer in Pittsburgh. Nice and clean and very refreshing. Might be best on a hot summer day.

Kroger bottle. Clear gold, small white head. Aroma is green grasses, light floral notes, minor honey. Flavor is green grasses, honey, orange peel, wet paper. Smooth, a good amount of flavor for the style. Decent.

Tall boy can pours with a crystal clear pure gold body that supports a white head. The aroma offers up floral and spicy hops as well as a dash of lime and bready maltiness. The taste delivers plenty of floral hop nuanced creamed corn flowing into a pleasing spicy and floral hop bitterness. Into the finish a mild cracker maltiness is noticed. Pretty solid brew with snappy hoppiness that prevents the annoying sweetness that typically plagues this style. I can drink plenty more of this.

Can at home. Light citrusy aroma. Pale malts with a bit of underlying sweetness. Lightly hopped. Easy drinker.

Draft pour at Calypso. The pour is a darker golden yellow with a thin film of white head and a good bit of lace as it falls down. The aroma is solid. Light and malty with a hint of hop. There is a light citrus and a hint of sweet metallic malt. Not terrible. The flavor matches. Citrusy and smooth with a light blonde malt addition and a smoother finish than. I was expecting. The mouth feel is light bodied and softly carbonated with a sweet malt and light hop finish. This is much more balanced than I thought it would be. 7 4 6 4 14

18th Jan 2018, happy hour pint in Bar 1502, Ocean Beach, San Diego. The wife's choice, I had about a third of it as she liked it. Golden pour, off-white affair on top. The nose had hints of citrus fruits and fresh doughy bread. Taste had a semi-sweet maltiness and a citrus hop flavour which counteracted the malts sweetness.

Pretty boring overall; really crisp and refreshing with a nice grassy hop profile, mild bitterness, grainy and bready malts. Overall well balanced and well crafted but boring.

ttoadee (1778) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 Clear gold pour, fading off white head. Nose is bland malt, whiff of citrus. Middle is light malt, with some mild candied orange peel. Finish is, well, boring. I see what they are trying to do, but it was just too subtle.

Stovepipe can. Aromas of grain, bread, light grass. Hazy light gold with a mostly lasting white head. Subtle sweetness, grainy, bready. Light-medium bodied.

DATE: December 29, 2017... OCCASION: celebrating the first Catan victory in the Kisatsky house... GLASSWARE: Abita pint... pours a busy, fizzing orange amber body that sends large bubbles upward, forming a swiftly descending off-white head that dissipates to a bog... lemon and orange are released, along with biscuit malts and cleaning agent--not quite a refreshing blend... sips at a fizzy, vibrant level, though it begins with a syrupy sweetness and finishes with thicker-than-expected, signaling its malt base... the mouthfeel is generally agreeable, but the aftertaste lingers longer than an acquaintance should... I do like the honeyed nuance to this, with the cracker malts somewhat obtrusively sweetening the experience beyond my desire... lemon, pepper, and some funky yeasts make this much less agreeable than the label proclaims... not feeling this one--and there are plenty of refreshing examples of this style to be had...
