Pours from the can a hazy gold/straw colour, capped by a couple fingers of rocky, uneven foam that recedes to a few rings and some solid lacing. Lots of visible carbonation.

Smell is grassy, malty. Hay. Slightly vegetal, slightly buttery (though not in a bad, diacetyl way). Faint hop bittering, but lots of biscuit, a bit of cracker. Taste follows through on those impressions: soft, super creamy, biscuit and light cracker with just a touch of balancing hop bitterness. Good body, moderate carbonation.

Quite refreshing, quite drinkable, quite nice--not up there with genuine, German versions of the style (it's lacking the clean crispness, and could use a bit more hop presence), but a nice, relaxing, enjoyable beer.
