Pours a clear straw color with a slight white head that doesn't retain as well as one would like. There is a toasted maltiness in the aroma with some nicely herbal hopppy aromas as well. The taste is more of the same with a toasted malt backbone that holds the brew up while the spicy and herbal hops provide the balance of the flavor. A bit dull on the tongue. This brew was extremely crisp and light, while this makes it rather drinkable it is somewhat a result of a boring beer. This would make a great session brew, especially in warmer weather. The dominating toasted malt gives it enough flavor to make it worth drinking but keeps it tame enough that little thought is required.

Crystal clear straw hue. Tight, thin, small beaded head. Light bready malt, light hop bitterness. Mild toasty malt presence. Clean, light, almost bland all around. Did I mention light? Drinkable, yet prosaic. Perceptible floral, lighly herbal Hallertauer hop flavor. Mild, but crisp hop bitterness. Lightly bodied, borderline watery mouthfeel. Innocuous, but very drinkable. Clean, dry finish. Excellent drinkability. Akin to an unskunked and well travelled Heineken, albeit thinner.
