355ml bottle thanks frank. Clear gold pour with a industrial-looking white head. This smells like a pale lager more than a Munich light lager. It has a sharp herbalness from noble hops, but otherwise it smells bleachy and watery. Maybe almost sarsaparilla. The flavor is undoubtedly all-malt but as if pabst changed thier recipe to be all malt. It is also a bit oxidized. It is not a Munich-style beer, and a mediocre to decent amero pale lager.

This is not an ideal lager. It tastes okay but has a distinct hint of banana and clove phenols that should not be there at all and don’t really work with the earthy bitterness. It’s a bit sweet but not too heavy due to fairly vigorous carbonation. This is not even close to style but I suppose it is fairly drinkable.
