Pale gold as expected, clear and bright, this beer meets expectations from the get-go. Also expected is a fluffy, though somewhat sparse, purely white head that shows moderation in both retention and lacing.
There's a bit of husk and corn, some sweetness coming off a sort of dustiness with a little spicy grassiness. It's lightly malty with some citrus notes to it, possibly part of the very light hops bill. It's a little grainy but fits the style and does barely exceed the average in its overall character.
There's actually a little harshness I wasn't expecting that kind of builds up at the back of the throat. It's not astringent, exactly, it just bites a little. Surprisingly, though, it doesn't detract too much from the mouthfeel of an otherwise nice, crisp, light-bodied brew.
