A solid golden-orange with a strong, fluffy white head, resulting in on-going stacks of lace. Continuous carbonation bubbles from below. Mildly cloudy - not as much as a wheat, but getting there.
Fresh, cool, citrus on the nose. Just a bit of malt at the end.
Smooth and lightly hopped, with hints of citrus and some pine. The buttery malt is surprisingly well-balanced, but comes through late, hanging around to continue filling the mouth.
The maltiness is drying, still leaving the mouth just a bit sticky. The carbonation closes quickly, resounding with malts and hops for minutes afterwards.
Nothing mind-blowing here, but a solid beer, and enjoyable drink - well-suited for the summer.

Got this at MOM's organic market in Herndon. Opened in my hotel room in the Crowne Plaza a few blocks away. Surprisingly, gushed on me, messed up the carpet a bit. Now to the review.
Very Murky yellow body with quite stable little yellowish white head. Head is creamy but looks a bit coarse. No bubbles visible
Nose is some pilsner malt, there is a whole lot hop aromas going on. There is some resin, noble spiciness and some fruitiness too, maybe pineapple
Taste starts a little sweet and is followed by resiny hops and bitterness, sweet pineapple again.
Drinks very smooth with little carbonation and the suspended yeast. Alcohol warms a bit.
I do not really know what to make of this. I expected a Pilsener but it is way too sweet for that. I think it is overly hopped but the hops are nice. It does not have the refreshing sharpness of a lager but it is smooth. The suspended yeast would make it a Zwickl still it is more an IPA than a lager. Do I like it? I am not even sure about that.
