12 oz can from The BeerHive in Pittsburgh. Almost no detectible trace of pineapple and a slippery thinness leads to a mediocre scoring. I can’t think of anyone who does this better, but certainly it’s time to try.

On tap at Sidelines. Pours a clear light yellow with a white head. Aroma of sweet pineapple and fruit juice. Flavor of sweet pineapple and pale bready malts. Sweet, but pretty good and quite pineappley. Although it’s sort of a "gimmick" ale, it’s one of the better ones and isn’t overly sweet. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

This is a very refreshing beer with an authentic pineapple taste! Very light in color, minimal white head from pour, and wonderful aroma and taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from artmcd8. Ultra clear light yellow color. Possibly the lightest colored beer I’ve seen. Aroma is all sweet pineapple. I would think this is a mead based on the aroma. Taste is not as good as the aroma. Flavor is a bit artificial, as if a pineapple syrup was added to a pale lager. Has a macro beer sorta finish. Overall, I really like the sweet pineapple aroma but everything is just ok. Seems more like a beer for non-beer people.

Aroma is of pineapple juice. Light and sweet, fruity with a bit of a malty lager underneath. Not terrible, but still not quite beer.

12oz can from Keith. Rating #22. Pale straw color with a white head. Big pineapple aroma, sweet juice. Light tartness up front, but that turned to sweet pineapple juice quickly after that, pretty nice and refreshing actually. (2822)

Had this on a cruise for fathers Day. Light golden color , and slightly cloudy. Definetley a shandy with slighty sweet pineapple taste. Not bad for the type.

Yuck. I think this was my first drainpour of the year and I’m sad to say it’s a local brewer. Poured this beer into a glass and at the end all of this brown stuff clumped out. Didn’t look like sediment and didn’t see anything floating in the beer. I usually love sediment but this seemed weird. Aroma was light pineapple and not much else. Flavor was very light with barely any carbonation. Tasted like a ZIma with some pineapple juice added. I took two sips and had to dump it. Sorry Rivertowne!

Slightly hazy straw yellow, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. All pineapple juice. Medium to light bodied, spritzy carbonation, semi-sweet finish. More fruit than beer.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is fresh pineapples. Flavor is sweet pineapple juice with a hint of straw. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy with a mild lingering pineapple finish.
