12oz bottle poured into a Perfect Pint.
A - Pours a very pale straw color culminating in a 1-finger, pure white head that dissolves within 5 minutes. Lots of carbonated bubbles make the exodus from the bottom of my Perfect Pint to the thinning head. Some icicle-esque lacing.
S - Smells quite fruity. Getting a mix of grapes and grapefruit with just the slightest hints of malt and alcohol. Intertwined with all of these smells is an airy, floral tone. Very light and refreshing smelling.
T - With such a crisp nose, I was taken aback by the taste of this one. Rather than getting a crisp taste, I received a fairly bitter brew here. I'm a bit underwhelmed at the moment because I came in expecting a German-styled maltiness that is completely overshadowed by the hops. Tastes more akin to a lighter, more floral IPA. Besides that, the profile does mellow out as it warms, but there's always an overbearing presence of hops.
M - Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. A bit creamy due to the head on this one.
D - Drinkability is moderate. A bit unbalanced for my liking and caught somewhere between a pilsener and IPA without getting the finer features of either. An interesting beer but I don't think I'll seek it out again.

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.

I recently tried it when in the UK and I am seriously surprised that something like this is sold. It's pretty much like a homebrewer's first pils. It is nowhere near the subtley balanced flavours other examples such as Pilsner Urquell display.
The taste is quite harsh, steely. The body is way too thin and lacks just a little bit of the sweetness that is necessary for even the dry beers like "Flensburger" or "Jever".
I'd go back to the drawing board with this one...
