From a 12 ounce bottle into a plastic cup at an airport sushi bar. Hazy golden color no precipitating carbonation thin white collar decent retention. Bready citrus nose. In the mouth slightly hop forward bready crisp citrusy. Mouth wet and quenching with correct level of carbonation. Overall satisfying sessionable easygoing pairs well with sushi.

12 oz bottle served in a lager glass.
Pours golden-straw colored with a semi-durable white head.
Light malty and yeasty aroma with a touch of citrus. Flavor follows. Clean and refreshing.

Feel: light body but not watery; crisp, medium carbonation; semi-dry finish.

Described as a "cream ale", not in my humble estimation. Light in look and taste. Lots of lace on sides of glass. IBU is 15, but again in my estimation bitter than a 15. A decent session or "lawn mower" beer but nothing to crow about.
