Pale gold in color with a big head of pure white foam, seemed maybe a little too foamy, as I had to stop pouring and wait for the head to settle a bit before finishing the pour, even with a 16 oz. glass and an easy pour with a well chilled bottle.
The smell was rich in flowery, herbal hops, with some sweet breadlike malt in the background.
Medium bodied with a good bit of tingly carbonation, typical Pilsener sweetness at first, then the hops take over with a vengeance. Hop character is very herbal/flowery before a drying bitterness on the finish. Not much in the way of malt flavor, just enough to know it's in there, the hops are king in this brew.
Overall quite a drinkable beer, tastes like a European pils, with an American IPA hoppiness.

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.
Serving type: on-tap
