A very light better with almost no color. A weak, but pleasent aroma. A fruity flavor with just a very small amount of hops. Very smooth

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is mostly diminishing.
Body is light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs).
Flavor is moderately sweet.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Not too bad, actually, considering it’s just a simple lager. Needs more assertiveness or aromatic interest to score higher for me, but I did not have high expectations and yet found it easily drinkable.
