Pretty fresh and vibrant am getting citrus and grassiness from this maybe a bit of vanilla in there, very much a eurolager kind of scent venturing more toward german pils.
Pretty light on the palette but do get a bit of presence and slight oily feel with a bit of wateriness. Medium/higher carbonation, not too overpowering that it hides flavors maybe a bit higher than I like.
Pale straw in a goblet glass. Poured to decent head that dissipated down pretty quickly, am getting some lacing on the glass as it goes.
Getting hints of the citrus and the hop bitterness, very little to no malt in the flavor with an almost grassy kind of taste.
Rather, this is meant to be a sessionable beer and it is. Not sure if I like it quite as well as some other eurolagers I've had though.
I do like this and the aroma is very nice which may be my favorite part. Compared to a german pils I don't like it as well but it seems to be most reminiscent of that style to me with hop and malt profile. I believe there are some cheaper alternatives that are close that are better.
