Light, but not quite as good as some of the other summer brews i've tried.

Pours crystal clear, yellow with a pretty big head of white developing. It recedes fairly quickly and leaves very little lacing behind.
Smell is a little malt, a little grain, some floral hops, with just a hint of citrus.
Taste is not the refreshing notes I expected. some malt, citrus notes, metallic, floral, gets medicinal in the aftertaste. Balance is good, though.
Fairly harsh up front, the carbonation looks to strip your tastebuds off your tongue. Not like a West Coast IPA but still pretty aggressive. Not what I want in a summer style, that's for sure.
