The aroma is clean and mildly flowery, sweet, and grainy. The body is very clear and pale amber in color with a frothy, eggshell-white head. There is more malt in the flavor than hops. The malt is smooth, sweet, and bready; the hops are only mildly bitter and add a hint of spiciness and floweriness. The body is medium-light with moderate, frothy carbonation and a good bite.

The mild hop bitterness and malt sweetness work well together, though the latter is unexpectedly prominent. The body isn't overly light and crisp but rather softly fizzy with just enough bite to be refreshing. Pleasant and satisfying.

12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods. Pours clear gold with a lasting off white head. Some noble hop aroma with a hint of citrus. Slightly sweet, with a graham cracker malt base. Clean, slightly floral mid-palate with mild hop bitterness. Fresh, crisp, refreshing and tasty. Love the low carb, low ABV. A very well crafted Pilsner.
