Appearance: 2"+ fluffy white head recedes slowly. Moderate lacing and moderate carbonation. Color is straw and mostly clear.
Aroma: smell is of fruity hops (almost a grape/raisin aroma), yeasty bread, and lightly toasted malts.
Mouthfeel: light and slightly sticky. Finishes crisp, dry, and refreshing.
Flavor: nicely balanced lager with sweet malts holding forth but enough floral hops to even it out. Overall: I can’t find anything to criticize about this beer. Excellent and enjoyable.

Poured a pale straw color with a tall, foamy head. The head disapated quickly and left a bit of lacing. Citrusy aroma from the mug I poured it into. Pleasant taste -- malty with a crisp, wheaty finish. Excellent palette ... creamy and smooth. I would stock up on this one if it wasn't quite expensive ($4+ for a 550 ml bottle).
