Served in a flute glass.
Appearance: Gold, bubbles floating throughout the body creating a white head which rose to maybe 1/10".
Smell: First two words is not impressing, light but raw hops.
Taste: Hoppy makes me happy, this beer for what it is packs a great taste of hops and smooth, like a feel of marzen.
Mouth: Medium, carbonation that feels smooth at first. You keep taking sip after sip and you feel the toastiness of this fine specimen.
Overall: I originally had this a few years ago and had it again today to finaly review and I like it. I know some people bash it but this beer impresses me on how smooth but yet flavorful it is. Little bitter and very easy to drink. Salud!

The appearance of this beer is a very light gold, similar to a light beer (one of those nasty light beers that start with Miller, Bud or Coors...). The head is non-existent with no lacing.
The smell is very unique: a massive floral smell with pine and a hint of citrus notes. It is only so appeasing but it is so different and interesting that I had to give it credit for being unique.
The taste is good. No flavor overpowers any other flavor. Because of this, you end up with a nice balance of sweetness, pine (bitter), floral (spice) and classic beer taste (barley).
The mouthfeel is average because of the carbonation, which is heavy.
Overall the beer is flavorful and refreshing, but I can only consume so many given the heavy carbonation. It is unique but being a snowflake does not always mean you deserve very high ratings. Still a good beer.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into cigar city pint glass
A-pours a light slightly hazy yellow. Nice white head, falls into i nice thin white layer on the top.
S-smell is a bit weak. Smell some floral/bitter hops in there. Nice scent but a bit to weak to really get me excited to drink this. A hint of malt sweetness is mixed in there as well
T-Hits with a nice sweetness up front finishing with a clear pilsner bitterness to it. Sort of floral hoppy flavor mixed in the middle with the sweetnesss.
Mf-A bit thin, Well balanced carbonation. Slight creaminess on the aftertaste.
O-This is pretty good. Nothing special but a nice refreshing beer. Wouldn't mind this on a hot summer day, maybe on the beach, its light and refreshing but gets my hop fix in as well. I feel if it has a bit more body to it then it would be significantly better.
