Light on the malt side, some pear in the taste as well, refreshing but low bitterness pretty short finish. Light body, dry average carbonation. Nice refreshing lager, not much taste but not bad taste. Would probably work really well in a hot climate (unfourtunately sampled on a rainy day in sweden.
