This is a great light beer. Pours into a pilsener glass an ultra pale straw yellow color with tons of carbonation. Aroma is almost non-existant, which is good because light beers often smell so nasty. I prefer nothing to bad. I suppose that if I really stretch the limits of my olfactory glands I can smell the slightest hint of pale malt and noble hops. Tastes like a watered down pilsener. Nobel hops and biting carbonation create a nice dry feel. Very carbonated. Drinkable like gaseous water.

(Served in a pilsner glass)

A- This beer has a pale straw yellow color with a white head that quickly turns to a ring around the edge. There is a strong carbonation of tiny bubbles in this brew.

S- There is not much smell at all. After a lot of sniffing a faint note of field corn and a soft noble hop bitterness comes through. As it warms there is a slight sweet note to the corn but it is very soft.

T- This beer has a very faint pale malt note quickly overcome by a cooked corn note. There is a faint noble hop bitterness that hangs on the tongue after the sip.

M- This beer has a light and fizzy mouthfeel

D- This is a very light beer and has the many qualities of carbonated water. I'm impressed that brewers could brew a beer with so little flavor and I don't really taste any big flaws coming through in the taste and smell. A great beer if you don't like the taste of beer.
