Pours a huge, dense, off-white head that has really nice head retention and laces like nuts. A really nice floral hop aroma in the nose; very aromatic. Notes of clover honey. Jesus this smells amazing. Radiant, golden color. Starts with a slight grapefruit flavored hop bitterness, touches of flowers, and greenness. Builds into a medium bitterness RIGHT as biscuity malt starts to show through. Builds in maltiness while the hop bitterness lingers. Finish is lingering citrus rind bitterness over biscuits.

I tried this years ago when it came out, and it was so-so. Apparently the hops from Wisconsin have improved drastically, because this is now absolutely fantastic.
It's wonderfully hoppy (especially good showcase of floral hops), but the malty lager underneath is no slouch. This has a great blend of malt and hop, overall. Quite excellent.

I should note that my bottle is just over 4 weeks old at this point.

Summer is great for lagers...and this one is exceptional. It is a hazy, golden straw color. The head is white, firm, and foamy. Clean, pale malt aroma, backed with a serious herbal Novak hop scent. The taste is clean, with lots of pale malt. Medium in body and warmth is present due to the abv. This is a very rewarding brew.
