Golden color with precious little head.
Grassy and husky smell present here actually works quite well for the style.
Taste has a innocently goodish amount of grassy bitterness. Tastes akin to the kid brother of Pilsner, looking up to him and hoping to one day assert himself in the same image. One thing about mild hop and husk flavors here is that once you swallow, it's gone, that's it.
This is exceedingly thin in the mouth, with nothing at all to stick to your teeth. However thin, there is adequate CO2 present to make this one drink pretty nicely. I give it good marks on drinkability for the style. Great session/lawnmower beer, and I'll revisit it in just such an occasion.

It looks the part: crystal-clear pale to medium yellow-gold, maybe a little depth to it. It actually develops a reasonably-sized, fluffy pure white head. It doesn't drop a whole lot of lace, but there's some spotting around the glass.
There's some earth on the nose, and some grassy and herbal hops make a show. It's got more hops than most AALs, but it has an unfortunate skunkiness to it as well.
The skunk doesn't really translate to the flavor, which is nice. It's still got light notes of grass and herb with a bit of pale, dry malts.
The feel is better than what most of this style have to offer, light-bodied without being terribly watery, a bit thin but not as much as most. It's got plenty of crispness and it actually gets pretty smooth. That it's pretty clean is also a plus.
