Slightly darker than US light lagers, the head dissapates quickly, leaving only the impression of light malts and tangy hop. flavor is very slight, a bitterness that leaves immediately when swallowed, leaving no notable flavors other than light malts and bitter hops; same as the nose. Carbonation level is very heavy with a very watery mouthfeel, yet this same trait makes this beer as easy to drink as a diet soda. Unimpressive but inoffensive, and a less offensive flavor then most american light lagers. This is a beer whose whole is better than the sum of its parts.

330 ml can served cold into a glass.
Appearance- fairly rich golden color, with a nice helping of two and a half fingers of head. This dissipates quickly however. Significant amount of bubbles in the see through beer.
Smell - slightly metallic, and other than that some mild adjunct aromas especially corn and nothing else to speak of. Fortunately nothing off putting either.
Taste- very bland, reminiscent of tonic water with a few adjuncts in there. Bland even by light beer standards. However nothing weird tasting that would give this an even lower score.
Mouthfeel - moderately high carbonation, dry finish in the mouth. Works well with the fizzy water flavor.
Overall - a little more flavor and this could be considered a pretty decent light beer, unfortunately this is extremely bland and water will quench the thirst better. Fortunately enough, there's nothing awful about it either meaning, it serves it's purpose well enough.
