Sampled from a 12oz bottle at Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe in Lake Buena Vista (aka Orlando), FL.
This was my first of this style to my knowledge so I will try to be as objective as I can without experience.
Poured a honey yellow color with tons of suspended particles and a thin white head. I say suspended, because they never moved, just hung. It almost looked like a jello mold, only the liquid was very light. Strange. Very little, to no lacing.
Very, very muted nose, that started to open up as it warmed, but never really developed into anything very aromatic. Muted hints of malt and hops. Slightly floral, but not very much.
The taste was also fairly muted with hints of malt and floral, lightly bitter hops. Very light body, with a crisp, clean finish. Mostly malt with a hop finish for balance. Very refreshing and clean. I would say this would be a great ball park beer, or after working in the hot sun. Maybe even a good beer for the beach or at the pool.

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]
The pour was a clear light amber with just a trace (almost none) of a white frizzy head that virtually was gone in a second or two and produced no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was very faint of a light grain malt, a faint odor of some grassy hops and a mild earthy yeast with a hint of rye and maybe a little citrus (lemon).
Taste was pretty bland yet quite crisp with a slight malty feel and a mild hint of rye, but not much else. The flavor faded from the taste buds almost immediately following the swallow.
Mouthfeel was extremely light in body with a watery texture and a light carbonation.
Overall this was a extremely light beer with a very light flavor and a mild carbonation. That being said it did possess a good smooth and easy drinkability and is ok if what your looking for, is a light beer with a low ABV…
