2.2/5 rDev -15.4%
Straw coloured with a two finger sized, foamy white head that lasts a lot better than expected & leaves a little lacing around the glass.
Rather light on the nose & as expected quite typical of the style; mainly grain & a bread/dough like aroma with possibly some corn too .
Pretty clean & chemical like. Leaves a skunky, unpleasant aftertaste that it count have done without although it is crisp
Not the smoothest beer but still okay on the palate which is expected as it it very light bodied bordering on watery.
Better than a few of the mass produced lagers out there but also trailing quite a few more.

Had the non lite version out in Amsterdam. Pours a light amber with amazing clarity, almost no head retention to it. Aroma was spritzy carbonation.
Taste, light, easy to drink, slight Saaz hop feel to it, not discernably different than the light version we get in the states. Uplifting, refreshing, just enough caramel to it. Overall, pricy, but one of the more enjoyable beers in the style. Have no idea why it isn't available in the states. Nothing groundbreaking, but sometimes we're in the mood for an easy drinking, lightly hopped beer.

I had this beer on 100 cl presentation...
It pours a pale yellow beer with a somehow good white head, that lasts a little bit and forms good lacing.
Smell is like hoppy with some bread.
The taste is bready, with a refreshing aftertaste... bitter and hoppy.
Not a big fan of pale lagers, but i guess under a mexican beach sun... you can drink a lot of this beer...

Pours with a reddish tinge to its yellow. A little white head. Taste is corny, a tad of carmel. Mostly astringent to me, very thin mouthfeel, and a couple of ounces is too much.Very light carbonation. Smell is neutral.Thanks for bringing Mr. Russev.Not too good.
