This brew was reviewed from notes.

Appearance- A half-finger of fizzy white stuff sits on top of a pale, marigold body, very hazy.

Smell- The nose is light, but has some fruity apple and floral notes.

Taste- It becomes quite grainy, and remains slightly floral. The green apple taste is still here, but light. This one is a little too grainy, and could benefit from a stronger punch of floral and fruity notes.

Mouth feel- This aspect of the beer is decent, bubbly and light. The crispness is definitely appropriate.

Overall- This light and fruity offering is just that, too light. It makes the beer bland. And it is definitely not helped by the graininess present on the palate.

Pint poured at the brewery. This review is from notes.

Pours sunshiney with a decent white head. Smells like a very pleasant mixture of fruity and flowery grain along with dry European hops.

Tastes as it smells, avoiding the typical brewpub pilsner pitfalls (no watery backend, not too carbonated, etc). Lightly sweet floral barely against dry, medium-bitter hops. Simple, but well executed.

Definitely not a toss off, nor something brewed to satisfy the taproom's less adventrous patrons. This is a solid example of the style.
