Clean, light straw color with a nice pillowy white head. Good lacing. Aroma of light fruit, subtle spice, and pilsner beer. Very dry finish. Can pick up some pepper in the finish and aftertaste, and slight orange peel bitterness, but only because I looking for it. Not bad.

Sample at the tasting room. The beer is a hazy yellow-orange color with a medium white head that dissipates gradually. Strings of lacing on the glass. Ginger, citrus and yeast in the nose. Medium-bodied with a floral character and flavors of sweet spices, yeast and apples. The finish is floral and fruity with a mild spice aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
