Hazy medium copper body. No head or lacing.
Citrus and grass hop aroma, slightly sweet honey malt hangs in the background.
The flavor is a little tannic, a little dusty. the bitterness is nice, but a bit overpowering. It needs more malt if there is going to be that big of a hop burst in a lager like this.
Low carbonation makes the mouthfeel a bit off. It should be much more biting from the co2. It's nicely drying, though.
All in all a good beer that could be tweaked a bit to be excellent. I'd buy it again, though. It definitely sticks out among the lagers on your average grocery store shelf.
