Had on-tap at Sunswick 35/35 in Astoria, NY on 5/22/11.
Review taken from notes.

A - This beer pours a clear light golden straw color. it has a small 1-finger white head on it. The head had good retention, and left some scattered lacing on the glass.

S - It smells of light bready pilsner malts up front. There is a nice sweetness to it, but theres also a nice floral hop character, as well as some earthy notes.

T - It starts of with some sweet malts. There is a nice hop bitterness and and an earthiness to it. I am getting some notes of bread, grain, and even a hint of honey. The finish is clean and refreshing.

M - It has a light body and crisp carbonation. It goes down smooth, and I found it to be quite refreshing. There is some lingering bitterness left on the palate.

O - This has good drinkability. It is a very easy going beer, and its great for any time of the year. Overall, I thought it was crisp, flavorful, and refreshing. I recommend trying it if you come across it.
