look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: crystal gold body with maybe a one finger white head that disappeared before my eyes; a spot or dot of lacing here or there.

Aroma: oh hum, another lager bouquet; in the bottle a little Euro must smell or green bottle smell; in the glass – sweet grains and grassy hop

Flavors: grainy, light herbal hop and dry grass, multi grain bread, for a Lager pretty good

Mouthfeel: crisp, refreshing, light flavors, light to moderate body, moderate carbonation,

To the Point: once again a typical Lager; average at best as far as Lagers go; refreshing and pleasing on a hot summer day. Hard to justify the $12.99 a six pack. The price is in play for the okay rating.

Another one in Greece.
A-Got it on tap,so it is very good looking beer in the glass. Pale color,with just enough bubbless in it. One finger white foam,staying all the way.
S-Usual,but weak smell for pale lagers.
T/M-Drinkable,low bitterness and carbonation.
O-I like it,nothing special,but i would like to drink it again.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A - pours with a small head of white foam that settles quickly and leaves decent lace.  The body is clear with a deep golden color,

S - a bready malt aroma with some light, herbal hops.

T - Grainy malt up front with some herbal hops.  A touch of corn in the middle with a dry finish and lingering, moderate bitterness.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - Not bad, it has a promising aroma,  but the flavor is a very average e.uro lager.

A: The beer is clear dark yellow in color (resembling apple juice) and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of corn and apple juice in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is sweet with hints of bitterness. There are flavors of corn and notes of apple juice.
M: It feels light-bodied and a bit watery on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The sweetness and apple juice flavors can make this a bit difficult to drink for some people. Nevertheless, it has a good amount of aroma and flavors compared to other adjunct lagers.
