Poured a clear golden yellow with very little white head that quickly receded to a ring of white. Abundant carbonation bubbles could be seen going up the glass. Very nice looking and true to style. Scents of lager yeast, grainy malt and slight earthy hops. A simple but well rounded and bright aroma, very suitable to the style, quite pleasant. Taste begins with sweet malt, moving into some grainy and bready malt in the middle, before finishing with sweet malt and slight hints of hops. The aftertaste is sweet, with faint undertones of herbal, earthy hops. A good, crisp, bright flavor, befitting a pale lager. Maybe a touch on the sweet side and needing a little bit more hops, but otherwise quite good. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate-high carbonation and a crisp feel. Very nice, quite easy to drink. Overall this is a good lager with a nice refreshing aroma and flavor profile. My only complaint is the relatively low hop character, but otherwise it's a nice beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Transparent gold with a generous frothy head.

S: Faint smell of grain and malt.

T: Similar to a german Helles - grainy with a mild grassy hop presence. Tastes very fresh - there's nothing skunky about this at all.

M: Medium carbonation - crisp and refreshing.

I'm generally a bit intolerant of this style, but this is actually fairly drinkable - it's definitely one of the better blond lagers I've experienced, though I'd choose a german pilsner over this any day.
