2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473ml can pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is grassy with some apple cider and grainy notes. Taste is malty sweet with a grassy hop bitterness finishing with a bit of apple cider and slight bit of metallic. A beer that is not worthy of any accolades. Typical macro lager.

Can: Poured a light golden color lager with a medium size foamy head with minimal retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light sweet notes with very subtle cereal notes.
