Pours a golden color, moving to orange, pretty hazy I think - but it slowly clears up, with a nice 2cm white head. I must say that the head is loose, and it sort of fell down, and only left a bit of lacing. The smell is very raw, and there are sort of 3 elements. First I noticed a distinct graininess, with something like lemon zest on top of it. Then there's a yeasty smell, with a bit of a fermentation smell - as if it was actively going on. Then there's an airiness to it a real lightness to the whole beer. The taste comes first with this slight pale maltiness, almost like it's mixed with lemon-lime soda, almost some artificial (read: un-malty, like sucrose). There's just a little bit of all of the normal stuff in this one. The body is somewhere around medium-thin, and the carbonation rushes in with every drink, almost stinging and biting. Lively and interesting. Fairly enjoyable and easy to drink. I doubt if I would come back to it with so much more out there. And I have to say honestly, this beer fits just perfectly as an average beer in the category.
