It poured a clear golden liquid with a medium sized foam that quickly dissapeared and left some lacing.
It had a weak smell of malt and bread.
It was smooth with just a bit stingy bitterness at the end, but yet low bitterness. Had a weak flavor of bread and malt with an alcoholic finish. No bad tastes, but felt like a very average lager.
