Served from a bottle into a a pilsener esque glass with a outward curve on the top to it.
A very appropriate glass for the style of beer.

I'm not a fan of light beers, but this was on clearance in winter so I grabbed one.

A - golden, little cloudy. one finger lacey head that sticks to the glass as you drink. lots of continuous bubbles.

S - standard light-beer taste, with a touch of lemon.

Taste - Light, like lemonade without the sugar, very refreshing. Moderate hops, not assertive, that's how I like it.

Overall: very pleasantly surprised with this one, considering my dislike for nearly all light beers. I can't wait to take a sixer of this to the beach this summer!
