Aroma is somewhat sweet and rather malty with some metal and cardboard. Flavour has some cardboard, honey, bready malt and papery notes. Surprisingly good for a Pale Lager from five years ago. Feels actually like some malty German beers.

Bottle, 4.5%. 2 years past BB date. Fruity aroma. Hazy grey/yellow colour. Small stable white head. Tastes oxidized, but that is to be expected. I doubt it was much better fresh.
