Can from johns pizza. Pours orange with a thin white head. Slight pineapple note on the nose. Bigger citrus on the tongue along with some malty sweetness. Finishes clean. Solid example of style.

Pours a pretty hazy yellow with a HUGE dense, small bubbled, off white head. Aroma has a light grainy nose with grassy, lemon citrus and a funky tropical fruitiness. Flavor is great! The malt comes through adding a great straw flavor while the hops add a slight grassy note, lots of tropical and melon sweetness in the middle with a mild lemon/light orange citrus flavor to finish. Body is perfect for the flavors, light with some density imparted by the haze present and a low carbonation rate. Beer retains it’s head superburbly. Overall a fantastic beer with a good deal of hoppiness but keeps it reigned in to prevent "imperialising" the beer. For a low alcohol and fairly low calorie beer, lots of flavor. I am definitely stocking this beer again and again at home for future drinking. Good beer+kick ass can = enjoyability^2

Yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is citrus hops and light malt. Light sweet caramel malt with a light medium citrus bitter. Light bodied and a tad fizzy. ok beer

Aroma is kind scary - I call it "wet paper towels", like a mass-market Euro-lager. That is no clue to the taste - nice and fruity hops, easy on the malt sweetness. Pretty tasty. I’d like to try this on tap to compare since it’s in a can, and I swear cans introduces a very, very slight metallic taste.

Pretty similar to Half Acre’s Daisy Cutter. More fruity and the mouth is more dry. More carbonated then I expected, too. Sticky mouth. Nose was tough to figure out of a can, but heavy in the sweet. Overall good

Tallboy from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours amber / yellow; thin head. Nose is mild hops with fruit / melon notes. Not as hoppy as some IPAish pale ales, but very tasty.

Can : Yes. The Can is the highlight element of this beer purchase. Copyright infringement? (Pacman) I wondered. Anyway - I went with a shaker pint glass for this one ; it pours fairly cloudly medium gold with a fluffy off white head present ; The nose is floral, with a mild tropical fruit bouquet. Melons... I suppose. Thanks to the Galaxy hops. This one is quaffable, subdued, mild sweet, caramel and bread, melons and florals, with mild bitterness. Its a nice drinker overall.

Gotta pump up the appearance to show my appreciation for this can art ! Pours a hazy golden color with a big three finger white sticky foam. Aromas are hop forward with soe grassy tropical fruit and a touch of melon rind. The palate follows the nose with a smooth round mouthfeel. Nice balance between hops and malts. Touch of cracker, spicy grass, fruit. Clean finish.
