Probably this is just not my style. I honestly don't think it's better than any other mild lagers out there. Even a little bit skunky, which I really did not expect.

5 litre mini keg. Golden and very clear. Taste is very soft and refreshing. Buttery bread. Minimal hops. Extremely sessionable. I would recommend to anyone looking for an easily drinkable, refreshing, & quality brewski. Would buy again.

Light to medium pilsner malt aroma with very light medium noble hop aromas at the end. No DMS or diacetyl. Pale yellow in color with spectacular clarity. Poured with a fizzy bright, white foam with low retentioin that quickly dissipated. Light to medium body with crisp, medium carbonation through the middle and a slight puckering sensation near the finish. Pilsner malt flavor is dominant with light noble hop bitterness near the finish that provides a pleasant balance. Crisp dry finish with light pilsner and bready aftertaste. Crisp, refreshing and easy drinking.

A nice example of the style. Still a tiny bit skunky, but still really good.
