A - Crystal clear straw, paper thin white cap. OK lacing.

S - Light hints of grain, virtually no hop aroma, and luckily no skunk.

T - Pils malt, light to medium-light grassy hop character.

M - Light bodied, light carbonation, dissipating and refreshing finish.

O - Great example of the style. Beer flavored beer hits the spot some times.

Poured into a tulip. The liquid is a clear, nearly transparent straw color, with a couple strings of bubbles rising through it. The pour produces a somewhat meager nearly-white head that fades quickly and leaves little in the way of lacing.

Aroma is dank, somewhat peppery, and a bit citrusy. Nice sweet malt and grassy hops.

Taste follows the nose - sweet malt up front, followed by some crisp citrus and grass. Less dank on the palate than on the nose. Finish is clean, with a lingering toasted malt flavor.

Mouthfeel is on the thin side, almost watery, with tons of prickly carbonation.

Overall, nice flavors, and easy drinking, but not much to rave about. Solid beer.
