Pikeland Pils

12 oz can.
I’ve heard quite a lot about this beer over the years, and some of it I suspect has been simply because it has been canned; there seems to be a mild hysteria that accompanies some canned beers where people get ahead of themselves and forget to worry about what the beer actually tastes like!
Pour is a well carbonated, golden body with some decent head. the lace is not huge, but a decent, semi-thick film hangs around on the surface of the beer.
A strange, citrusy, lemon like smell that surprised me, but that I quite like.
The tastes are less impressive, with a malty sweetness that has a certain macro quality. Not good. Some soapy character (which I sometimes like but seems way out of place here) and a little bit of bitterness in the finish. I like the bitterness but it lacks a clean edge to leave me unhappy.
Clearly a beer that has been hyped because of the can angle, and is one that is not quite as good as people imagine.
