Pours pale and with exceptional clarity. A fate white head that falls fast and leaves a bit of lace. Nose is just a hint of sweetness. That's it. Really no nose. The taste is very close to water. It had a bit of cereal grain in it and a touch of sweetness but it's very thin and even though it uses three varieties of hops, there's no grass and no taste form hops. It finishes dry and with no aftertaste. The carbonation does not bite until the finish.
