This is a good clean, crisp lager. It is simple as a lager should be, and it was decent priced at 8.49 @ Bevmo in Los Angeles area which is the going rate (low end) for a craft 6 pack. I find my self spending 30 bucks on a 12-pack these days. I am searching for the perfect lager and so far Peroni (yes Peroni) is the closest I've gotten!

A-golden yellow color with a nice white head and good lacing

S-malt and bready with some grassy notes

T-malt and breads with light citrus and some hoppy bitterness

F-light body with medium carbonation, crisp and clean

O-a refreshing pilsener with good flavor

Plain and buttery. Pretty forgettable at first acquaintance. Nice appearance with golden color and thin foamy cap. Pretty, even, like sunlight in the tall glass. Slight sandpapery texture in the mouth, and a light body. Pleasantly carbonated on the tongue.

Not too hoppy, especially for the style. A mellower Pilsener. Thoroughly drinkable, and pleasant enough for the low alcohol.

On tap at La Sirena in South Laguna Beach. It was $6 for 15 oz pour, at least they're honest about their "pint" glasses.
