Looks incredibly clear in the glass. Golden with 2 finger soapy head. Smells a bit skunky. Green apples, almost farmhouse smell. The taste is more of a peppery, taste up front. Bitter hop bite, not quite too much, but kind of too much. Light Apple again. Refreshing. Nice carbonation inviting more drinks.Overall for a light refreshing lager it falls a little short of some other pilsners/ light lagers. Heck I'd maybe get a high life instead. This def has more flavor, but not all flavors go perfectly together.

Bottled on 12/15/15:

I was really excited to try this beer, as this is not a common style, but one that I really like. The beer was described by the others, very nice color and clarity, good feel but for me...for the style, this beer was way too over hopped. I guess, I expect to much...please tone back the hops.

A: A slightly hazy golden / hay color. White foamy head. I had so much lacing after the 15 minutes I took to finish, that I couldn't see through the glass, so I don't know where people are getting the "No lacing" bottles.

S: Has a big floral smell with a hint of mineralness to it.

F: Covers the mouth a bit, but not too heavy.

T: I'm not a lager person, and I like it... so thats nice.

Overall:

I don't like most lagers because of the mineral taste and overall blandness that most lagers have. This is far from that. Floral smell with a nice, very small, bite and great overall taste.
