Same ultra-bright gold as the standard pils with lots of carbonation and a bit more substantial and creamy looking white head. Smell is way less fruity than the normal pils... mild lemon/citrus, little grassy and white grape/wine. Lemon-pepper flavor descriptor is right on the mark but unfortunately that and a lingering bread crust in the bitter finish are that seem present. Malt doesn't really come through in the taste, but results in a thicker mouthful than the standard pils. Overall not bad but not great... too unidimentional. Think I'll stick with the standard or a tuatara.
