Pours a small head that disapates quickly. Appearance is a clear straw color. Not much for aroma except for some light malt. The taste reminds me of a Witbier but more subtle. Nice light mouthfeel for a warm summer evening. A beer to be drunk in large quantities if you want something better than Bud.
