3.05/5  rDev +39.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle

A- Perfectly transarent golden. A very effervescent one finger white head disappears in the span of a couple of seconds. No lacing on the sides of the glass. Some carbonation is visible

S- A whiff of pilsner-like aroma right after opening the bottle. Cereal/grainy malts base with a touch of herbal noble hops. Very subdued after pouring, almost undetectable

T- Crisp grainy/crackery malts. Herbal/grassy hop notes on both tongue and palate. Maybe the faintest hint of citric fruitiness. Low hop bitterness, even for the style

M- Easy and clean mouthfeel. Low to medium body with medium carbonation. Lively with some pleasant crispness but still decently smooth

O- This is slighlty better than your average industrial lager, with no metallic flavours or excessive carbonation. Not complex or interesting at all, but still enjoyable and refreshing

I picked up this 33 cl clear green bottle from the local supermarket. It's a clear yellow colored liquid, with a thin white head. It leaves a bit of lace. Frankly, this one looks like a typical macro. The smell has a pronounced cereal grain quality, backed with a touch of malt. There's a little corn adjunct and a bit of sulfur. There is not much of a hop aroma, and the hop bitterness is considerably low. It's a clean and relatively crisp lager. Low sweetness, and medium to light in body. There's not much else to say about this one...it's essentially everyday macro-like fare.

Golden yellow, very clean. Compact and white head.
In the smell malt, corn, a somewhat old hop.
The corn is evident in the taste too. Nothing to remember. Hop.
Again some hop in the aftertaste. And corn.
It is a new beer for the 150 years of the brewery. One can expect a lot more.
