This one actually produces a thin, spongy head with some lacing. It is light transparent urine in color and has the faintest aroma of peaches. Biting astringincy brings in soapy, yeasty, and slight apple suggestions. OK but funky and the mouthfeel really stings like a bitch. This is way over carbonated.

Had this on tap at Gyu-Kaku in downtown Vancouver, poured into a frosted pint glass (they only had frosted glasses).
Appearance: Pale gold with a narrow, yet creamy white head. Medium carbonation.
Smell: Very mild, did not pick up much, but to be fair I was in a busy restaurant surrounded by grilling meat. We had not started grilling at our table however.
Taste: Also very mild, hints of sweetness, hints of bitterness, hints of this or that, but no central flavour jumps out, besides a slightly stronger malty taste. It does work well for what it is however, and finishes nice, dry, and crisp.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and fresh, went well with the slightly heavy food it accompanied. A bit thin.
Overall: A serviceable beer, nothing spectacular, but it's a nice simple drink that goes well with grilled meats. It's fine for what it is, but I'm not going to be craving it any time soon.

A- pale gold with creamy white that lasts and leaves lacing; visible carbonation
S- not much. Some undefined malty sweetness but not much more than that
T-similar to smell. Sweetness with maybe a bit of hops bitterness on the finish. Again, nothing definable.
M- thinner and a little fizzy.
O- a pretty boring lager. Didn't disrupt my sushi but I wanted more from it.
