Aroma is fresh. Appearance is golden with a beautiful frothy head white. Taste is sweet nutty flavor. Medium body with thin texture. Lively carbonated with long finish. Exceeded my expectations. I have found my new favourite

superspak (4662) - Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2015
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 3/31/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with very poor strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Pretty clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes in the aroma and flavor. Medium carbonation and light-medium bady; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale lager style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Patrickctenchi (6024) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Can: Clear gold with a fluffy white head. Grain, honey aroma. Taste is sweet grain malt, a little lemon.... Pretty nice flavour, and the body is fairly robust and creamy. Definitely above average.

From bottle - actually like it - more of a rounder mouthfeel than Tennents Lager and perfectly chuggable

Strangebrewer (1167) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
can. 5%. Poured clear liquid gold with a large white head. Grainy hay aroma. Mouthfeel is carbonated, light and slightly dry. Kinda plain grainy-macro start but has a nice bready malt flavour with a honey sweetness.

johnnnniee (3782) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 14, 2015
Can from Bert’s Pours a bright almost neon golden color with a decent sized bubbly white head. Grainy crackery pilsner malt with a hint of skunk and just a touch of spicy hop. The flavor adds a honey like sweetness and just a touch of sulfur. Decent enough lager, cool that its in a big can, but unremarkable.

heemer77 (5294) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Can. A bright white head tops a medium gold colored body. This has a grainy and meaty nose with some pear hints. This tastes fairly dry like hay with some raw grain. There is also some bread crust. Actually this is interesting with just enough going on to keep it drinkable. Pleasant and clean.

sudomorph (1088) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
500ml can. 5%abv. Pours a crystal clear, light yellow with a one finger, white head that thins. Aroma has smooth notes of grain, slight adjunct, and traditional hops. Taste is balanced. Sweet grains, classic, mild hops, and a short ending. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Overall pretty standard but easy drinking and refreshing.

Capa (2723) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Clear gold with a tall head that fizzed off quickly. Toasty biscuit, corn, light earthy hop notes. Medium thin body. Flavor finishes with a lot of toasted malt and light earthy hops. Clean. Decent. (My can was labeled 5% abv.)
