500 ml can - Golden pale colour, carbonated taste. Palate quick to go. At least malt like. No real aroma. It's drinkable and light on taste and flavours that's all you say.

Cimbasso (558) - - FEB 1, 2015
Sampled from a can from Iceland (the country, not the supermarket). Thanks, Izzy! A pale lager with syrupy sweetness. Slightly more hop flavour than some, and slightly higher ABV, but otherwise a typical light lager.
