superspak (6008) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2017
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 6/4/2018. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Bit of skunky notes in the aromas that dissipated as it sat in the glass. Okay aromas of pale malt and minimal hop notes; with poor strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Lightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery feeling. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Nicely flavorful and clean pils malt/grain presence with decent hop balance. An enjoyable offering.

This is not a good beer, but it can seem that way at a particular waypoint on your beer drinking journey. The aroma is wet hay and dead ass. It is fizzy urine looking and the taste is green bottle and light skunk, just watery beer water. Ok to chug for free or if the only other options are awful. Good for a karaoke night of kigus and cuddles.

Draft different than bottle. More refreshing and nice taste and no stinky aroma is in the bottle. Golden colour, missing aroma. Draft is decent, but in bottle not so good. Inbev work.

I assumed this would be a good beer, considering all the ads I see for it. Nope. Another hops bomb. Wow, cant stand this silliness with all the hops in almost every single beer. Really? I understand that hops preserves the beer longer so it can sit on the shelf longer. But then, what about the highly touted "freshness date" that crafties make such an issue about?????? Years ago, no one cared about the "date". Now, suddenly, it is all beer crafties talk about, as if an "old" beer is so much "worse" than a "new" beer. As if the beer has not been sitting in a vat fermenting for months????????

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 En términos generales es bastante buena para una lager regular. Fría se disfruta bastante por su carácter suave, no obstante, tiene bastante cuerpo y un gusto posterior levemente amargo agradable.

Stella wobbles for me between a nice crisp light beer with that unique European tang and badger pee. The cans are far and away better. It isn't wonderful but it is good enough to have another occasional.
