Poured from a bottle into a mason jar. Appears a slightly cloudy gold with a foamy, quick-dying head. Aroma is bright and malty. Immediate hop flavor followed by a slinky citrus flavor. Finishes lightly bitter with a bite that gets stronger after you've taken a sip. The citrus flavor gets slightly less prominent as the beer warms. It's very bubbly on the tongue and light-bodied.

An easy-drinking, bright-tasting lager. Complex enough to please my palate, but refreshing and light enough to throw back a few. Recommended.

Nice lacing, Average head retention, pale rotting fingernail color.

The smell is inviting, especially as it loses its cool.
Not only is the smell nice, but this beer literally has a nosefeel. It's almost frothy.

The taste gets better as the beer looses its chill.

The mouthfeel runs from the base toward the end of the tongue, like a slide. It froths at thr back of the throat. The froth is more enjoyable in the nose.
