dlihcsnatas (702) - Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Originally found this bottles and got a six pack. They was in the back of the fridge so I didnt get going on them till I found this again in a sampler 12 pack of CANS. From the bottle, this is a slightly hazy golden brew with a nice head that hangs on. Aroma and taste are some piney hops and decent malt backing. Really enjoying these while working outside on this nice day. Will finish it off with those 3 CANS later.
