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.
Serving type: bottle
