On tap into a pilsner glass

A - Beer pours a clear bright golden/straw color with massive carbonation rising quickly towards the surface of the beer. Head is ultra thin and white in color. Head doesn't even climb enough to dissipate to a thin lacing. The thin lacing is present from the get-go. 3/5

S - Very subdued aroma. Notes of pale malt, grassy hops, and a very light biscuity sweetness are present. These are more hints than true notes and do not comes across strongly at all. 3/5

T - Sweet maltiness straight away is a nice change from the aroma. This sweetness is more of a cereal sweetness than a caramel or sugary sweetness. Grassy hops come into play fairly quickly with the disappearance of the malty flavor. The grassy hops note finishes out the tasting profile with a light bitterness that does not linger. 3.25/5

M - Massive carbonation burn, especially up front leads into this being a light bodied beer with a palate cleansing characteristic. Not drying sensation, rather a focus is on wetness and sessionability. Does not linger on the palate upon swallowing. 3.25/5

O - The amount of flavor is vastly superior to the aroma although the bar is set fairly low due to the subdued nature of the aroma. Very light beer that pairs well with just about any food. Somewhat of a watery beer that strikes a balance between sweet and bitter but overall not a lot going on with this one. 3/5
