Small carbonation head, pissy yellow appearance. Fairly decent aroma.. of the usual suspects, malt and grasses. The taste.. is not bad, thankfully no skunkiness. There is a bit of a metallic off-taste, but not unusual in the pale lager variety. Palate is OK, though that metallic off-taste comes back in a dry, bitter way. It’s an OK selection.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is corn, syrup, caramel, and a slight bitterness on the back end. It’s dry with an abrupt finish. It’s not too sweet. It’s a decent and refreshing pale lager.

Good beach beer. Simple, not gonna score any originality points. Kinda tastes like every other pale lager. Medium amber in color, average taste, sweet with a funky finish.

Biere de couleur blond clair translucide Au nez on va sentir des notes épicées Embouche on va sentir des saveurs d'épices et de miel. L'amertume et d'assez légère et elle a une longueur en bouche pas très longue Une bière de soif assez correcte

16oz can. Pours a sparkling straw color with small, white, rapidly evaporating head. Aroma of grain and corn and some skunkiness. Flavor is mostly sweet malt with grain notes and a bit of skunk. Light bodied. Typical macro.

Kultige Flaschenform. Sehr helles und leichtes Bier, kaum Schaum. Getreide und Hopfen in der Nase. Geschmack auch getreidig und leicht säuerlich. Sehr eindimensional.
