Light, crisp and macro-clear diluted honey color. Thin, dish soap-bubbly head.
Slightly skunky aroma...standard for a Western European higher-end macro. Can smell a little Pilsener-style hop presence.
Very dry on the palate. Carbonation and hops bite in tandem for a tinny aftertaste that mellows only slightly with warmth (the skunkiness takes over after that).
Crisp on the mouth but a tingly aftertaste of industrial style hop, light malt and corn (?) mass-production.
It is what it is - a Euromacro. Tastes like it has some class but nothing I would seek out.

2.58/5 rDev +7.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75
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.
