Tastes like the style. I can never put my finger on it, but has that caramelized, sugary malt. Finishes a little sweet. Pours golden with ok head and lacing. Finishes with some barley crispness. On tap at DC Beer Festival.

Can. Pale gold with a white foam. Aromas are grain with light corn and soapy lemon. Biscuity. Flavours are sweet grain with mellow lemon and a light nuttiness. Dry and soapy to finish. Some herbal leafiness. Better than its description.

GBZ59 (977) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - FEB 20, 2014
Bote de 330ml. Copa Flauta @ Freiburg (L´Hospitalet-Barcelona). Color oro pálido y cristalina. Espuma blanca, corona tupida con bastante buena retención. Aromas picantes, florales, de levadura y hierba. Entrada malteada y vivaz redondeada por matices leves de pera y manzana. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación moderada aunque chispeante. Textura de malta pálida y toque picante junto a un amargor limpio que aflora en el intermedio permanecen en un amargo/dulce final. Retrogusto reseco. Un trago fácil!! 330ml can. Footed flute glass @ Freiburg (L´Hospitalet-Barcelona). Pale gold color, clear appearance.. White froth, close crown & fairly good retention. Spicy, floral, yeasty & grassy aromas. Malty & crisp upfront rounded by hints of apple & pear on the back. Light body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Pale malty texture & spicy touch. Clean bitterness arises in the middle & lingers into a bitter/sweet finish. Dried aftertaste. Easy to drink !!

(can - 12 oz) Love the can design where the entire top pops off. Clear gold in color with white head. Aroma is pretty mild. Some light hops. Flavor is a bit odd. Kind of dank and a bit of bitter hops. Ok, but not great.
