I had this on tap at Victory Brewing
A - A very pale golden with good clarity and small snowy head with small bead, little lacing collects

S - The smell is yeasty, with subtle sweet malt and mild floral hops

M - The feel is thin, but apropos to style w/ light malt texture sweet herbal hop feel and kind of watery finish

T - The flavor is crisp, clean and sweet w/ floral hops not really adding any contrast in the way of bitterness. I found this to have a nice malty refreshing quality with slightly lighter body and mild yeast influence in the flavor.

D - This beer is not for everyone - even our waitress said it was 'like pilsner with a few icecubes tossed in', but for the style I liked it found it tasty and worthy of more samples if they hadn't had 14-16 other great brews on at the brewpub
