2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a typical lager content - golden color and an average white head with little retention.
Aroma is sweet malts and some light grains in the back.
Taste starts on the sweet side and continues with a little hoppiness. The finish is lightly bitter. A non-offensive beer. Not much to the taste, but still drinkable.
