Poured from the 375mL bottle into a pint glass.

The beer is a nice pure golden color with lots of carbonation coming through. Head dissipated almost immediately and was foamy and offwhite. Typical.

S: The smell coming off of this one is noticeable right upon opening and that's not entirely a good thing. Typical grainy smell but also some sort of sour and vegetal note. Not skunky, but not very natural or pleasant either.

T: Watery and very light on flavor but what is there isn't even your normal beery flavor. There's a sour note in the middle with a light bitterness covered up by an unnatural sweetness. Not undrinkable, just not that good.

This reminds me of a second rate Euro Pale Lager and seems like that's what they are going for as those are hugely popular. Even so, I've had better even for the style. Not even very refreshing due to the weird flavors in the beer.

Just go for a Bud or Fosters.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2

375ml bottle poured into pint glass 15/3/14

A clear straw yellow with plenty of bubbles but just a short lived finger of foam that leaves a partial ring and a few random patches

S sweet grains and some wet cardboard, very little going on, a little hay maybe

T tastes much worse, chemicals and pennies, not quite skunky but a little musky, some cooked veggies, and soggy cereal

M thin and watery, soft carbonation, about what I expect from a macro but the aftertaste is awful and lingers

O not horrible until you taste it, doesn't really improve after that

this ones a wolf in sheep's clothing, looks good before you open and drink it, well and truly overpriced avoid this one boys and girls
