Poured an amber color with a white head, which quickly dissipated. Lots of bubbles were visible and were able to keep a very thin head throughout the beer's life. The smell of the beer is that of malts and even a bit of hops. The initial taste of the beer was malts and hops. The finish of the beer was not as expected, there was a wheaty after taste which I wasn't too pleased with, but none the less worked well with the beer. An additional note to add is that there was lots of carbonation.

Large fluffy head with good lacing. The head sticks around for a long time. Beautiful light copper colored beer. Very clear. Moderate carbonation with large bubbles.
Hops are dominant. Some malt sweetness in the background.
Tastes like it smells, but with a slightly harsh bitterness to the finish. There is just something about the flavor profile that I don't like. It is too harsh for the style. It tastes like the ingredients are good quality. It just comes across as unpleasantly harsh on the finish.
Medium bodied. Good mouthfeel, but that weird lingering harshness detracts from the experience.
This is a pretty good beer that for some reason just doesn't sit right with my palate.

A - Copper gold with a nice medium white head.
S - Very malty, can't get any hops or anything other than barley malt, really.
T - Buttery breadiness to the malt.Very slight hops and then citrus at the end. My palate is too accustomed to bitter hops to agree with other reviewers about the bitterness of this one.
M - Smooth with favorable carbonation.
O - Overall I'm meh on this one. Expecting a bit more but I can't really be wowed by lagers anymore it seems. Take that as you will beer-anti-hipster-hipsters.
