On tap. Fresh and clean, refreshing and with the typical top-fermenting yeast taste. Quite common and nothing special.

czar (5013) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
pours light but bright golden with a small white cap leaving a small rind and shy lacing. pleasant crisp pale cereals, honey smoothness, honey biscuits/bread, grassy nobleness, spicy and peppery citrus, chalk and other minerals - soft water-like feeling, just a hint of cardboard - not bad for it has travelled a lot. average carbonation, light body - fairly smooth and oily, relatively dry grassy-herbal finish. i bet this one would drink quite well on tap/cask and/or tempered.

joeneugs (3739) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 18, 2015
On tap at Rosamunde in Oaktown. It pours a clear light gold color with a small white head. The aroma is lightly fruity and malty with hints of honey and floral hops. The flavor is the same. Mild fruity esters up front with pear, apple, grape and more pale malty flavors coming through mid-palate. Hints of floral hops. Mild cardboard and florals in the finish. White grape is what seemed to come through the strongest for me. Pretty decent, sessionable stuff.
