I sampled this beer on location. The pour was a hazy golden to lighter amaber color. Good head retention that remained around the edges and left ok but limited lacing.

The aroma smells German in a way. A decent overall smell that brings good grainy smells. Some what of a touch of a yeasty smell but limited.

The flavor is mostly malty with basic pale malt taste and not much else. Somewhat of a skunky aftertaste but nothing too extreme like diacetyl. The hops are noticeable up front. A good noticeable bite at first with a citrus and herby taste. But the taste quickly goes away.

The body is light and a high carbonation leaves a zingy texture. There is a chalky almost filmy aftertaste that really is a deterrent to this beer.

From notes

Very light color with a thin white head. Some bubble showing a touch of activity. The nose has a touch of hay in there its ok. The taste is just lame and watery, just flat there isn't anything there nothing really special it's a beer that seems targeted at the macro drinkers and it just doesn't do the style any justice.
