as straw as they come, with a little fluffy white topping.
smells straw, smells like a run of the mill commercial lager....
taste is okay. easy to drink. mild (very mild) hop bitterness. nothing amazingly eye-catching (or palate catching).
overall, for a weak abv, straw-colored whatever they wanna call it, it's okay. can drink many in succession, for certain, but would you want to? there is a certain richness to it, as a hefe might be, so that may slow down your session. but it's drinkable. it's likable. it's way better than the commercial crap i was originally comparing it to. for montana, i imagine this might be a 'lady's beer' ? ?

Hazy bright yellow, nice frothy head that leaves gobs of lace.

Wheat, lemon, slight pilsnery yeast note.

Biscuity, with herbal hops, a lemon and black pepper note, crisp grains, and a dry finish. Really refreshing.

Medium-light mouthfeel, crisply carbonated.

I was quite surprised by this. Thirst quenching and crisp in exactly the way I was looking for. Very nice.
