A - Beautiful two finger head. Pale golden straw color, almost sickly. Decent carbonation. Head retention is solid, with very nice lacing. Very clear.
S - Pilsner-like, slightly hoppy, spices, and a strong banana or honey note. Very even and mild; wheat.
T - Smooth. The banana flavor is very mild, barely present (and might be honey). Strong wheat flavor reminiscent of a heavier beer. Mild like an AAL, but with a fuller flavor. Very pleasant. Slight astringency, but I can't taste any specific hop flavors.
M - Again, smooth. Stings the tip of the tongue smartly, foams a bit when chewing, but overall, a very nice mouthfeel. This isn't a beer to sip and savor; it's a beer for strong, big drinking, and it flows perfectly for that style.
O - This is a great and inexpensive lager. I don't quite buy into the hype, nor do I put it up there with their Hefe-Weissbier. However, this is a very solid beer for an easier drinking choice, either for a session beer or for a hot day outdoors. Much easier to drink than a Weissbier.
