Served in a nonic pint glass at the brewpub.

Waltzing through the house list on Pint Night, this came up first. It pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grass, flowers, lemon zest, and light orange peel. The taste holds notes of grass, greens, light lemon peel, and light wheat. The body is pretty light, with a very light moderate carbonation and a crisp-ish finish. Overall, a nice Munich light, nothing close to Earth-shattering, but enjoyable enough for what it is.

12 oz (maybe 16) tap pour into a Pilsner glass.

A - Effervescent as hell gold clear color wit ha small white head that left average lacing.

S - Light pilsner malts and an adjunct husky, grainy smell with very light hops. Just there to balance and doesn't really add much more.

T - Solid flavor despite it's lack in aroma. Somewhat tasty malting for the style although not my cup of tea. Seems slightly "cheaper' than all their other beers. A hop hint balances out but no bitterness to speak of.

M - Carbonation bite. Half way through the beer, the carbonation is still streaming up heartily. Dry finish but crisp, refreshing, and light bodied.

D - If it's a light bodied beer you're looking for, look no further. This is one easily drinkable beer.
