This beer pours a beautiful copper amber color with a decent ivory colored head of about 2 fingers (into my pilsner glass). Its translucent, but not much more than the light passes through. Also, it is hazy in appearance. The smell is very gentle. It was barley there or like it was hiding; but there are hints of amber maltiness (if that means much to you). The taste is very pleasant and does not overwhelm. Very gentle up front with the hop element coming out in the middle, (very slightly you notice) the bitter bite at the end; leaves a quite substantial lingering after taste of toasted hops. I get a sort of barely caramel amber malt flavor, with just the right amount of hopy bitter. I am not a big fan of very bitter beers and this one is just barely bitter. Perfect for me. Also I generally prefer heavier beers, but this was extremely surprising. It was simply pleasant to drink. I had it with dinner tonight (and more after) and the mild cool and crisp characteristic makes it very refreshing. The mouthfeel is a bit tricky because it is very light, yet full and fluffy feeling; then when you swallow it feels crisp. It is hard for me to put my finger on but the mouthfeel is truly about perfect. The drinkability is amazing. WOW! Quite addictive. Comes in a 650 ML bottle and I guzzled it before I knew it; so in other words I HIGHLY recommend this beer. Especially when you are looking for something light and refreshing. Its a great beer for a cookout (when that season comes), or just to enjoy when you want a pleasant beer you don't need to think much about.
Hope this is helpful.
