Banana yellow color with quickly disappearing cap and lace.

Aroma of bright, floral, spicy hops with a mild malt cracker following.

Taste is first rate for a light beer. The malt presence is there in a dry sense but the sensation is primarily one of floral hops. Flavor is malt (or grain) forward and pleasant. It tastes like a beer as opposed to a number of light brews who's taste is hard to describe due to their elusive, fleeting natures. Like trying to describe the color of fog.

Light medium texture.

I can see how this one is popular. Enough flavor to say it has flavor, low cal (85), food friendly and comes with the cache of being an import. Decent, unobtrusive, like soft background music. Doesn't ring any bells in my tower though.
