Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Appears a hazy, bright yellow color with a oddly small white head that leaves great lacing.

The nose has soft yeasty characters, with breadiness, a touch of spiciness and sweetness. Beyond that, it's lacking in character. The taste is along those lines, but the spiciness is shown off more. Again, pretty laid-back and not something you want to go back for again. I expected a bit more yeast here, and a touch more malt character.

The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied, with a slightly sticky finish. High levels of carbonation finish this off. Overall, it's a decent brew but not something I'd reach out for again. Fairly laid-back and one dimensional, but refreshing.
