Pours a very pale golden yellow color. Medium-large white head, rockier than the Pilsner version, which I tried just yesterday, but still mostly fine foam. Mildly cloudy, less so than the Pilsner. Little to no lacing, bubbles dissipate quickly. The aroma is lightly floral with some sweet lemon flavor. Simple malt sugariness. The malt is subtle and nice. I'm not getting any caramel or deeper malt flavors. The taste is crisp and light. Mildly sweet. Very fresh malt flavor. Just a bit of husky grain flavor in the finish, along with some mild lemon tartness, possibly from the light hopping. Clean. Prickly, light mouthfeel. Very light, really. Refreshing beer. Seems like a solid malt choice if you want to let other flavors shine.

Pours no head on a hazy light straw body.
The aroma is lemon and dry grain.
The taste is metallic bitterness throughout, a little sweet note in the middle.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It doesn't look great, but it's got that nice dry bitter flavor.

This is a unique beer with a bit of skunky funky going on. It looks like a bit of an experiment that isn't finished, but perhaps it does not transport well.

It was hard to get over the stinky aroma and funk. It is not something that I would recommend or that I would seek out again.
