The beer pours a white bubbly head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is a clear and pale gold color. The beer smell has a strong sweet malt smell. The smell also has yeast notes and a bit of a light hop profile that create a bitter banana smell. The beer taste is similar to the smell but that the notes are stronger and that hops are more noticeable than in the smell. The beer is very refreshing but a little sticky. The beer has a very light body and very smooth. It also has very little carbonation. Overall, a pretty good beer worth getting.

Appearance is a slightly darker straw color with a small white foam head. Dissipates quickly. A litle bit of visible carbonation.

Aroma is some wheat, along with some lightly toasted grainy and bready malts. Slight hint of citrus.

Taste is similar to the aroma. Leads with wheat followed by some citrus. Lemon zest. Lightly toasted, grainy malts. A little sweet.

Mouthfeel is light. A little watery. Refreshing and super easy to down.

Overall, a pretty un-noteworthy lager. Very similar to New Glarus' Totally Naked. Not a bad lager, but wouldn't seek it out.
