Pours a crystal clear pale yellow water like color. A head of just forced almost fake like carbonation which is amazingly off putting.

Sweet grain cereal, a touch and I mean a touch of perhaps bananas and cloves? This has the subtle aromas of a hef but extremely subtle. I’m actually rather ok with this aroma. High hopes going from here. That said I may just be looking for aromas when they aren't there.

Well so much for that. There’s virtually nothing to even speak of in this beer’s flavors. It is bland just hints of grain and water.

Weird over carbonated….well it is a light lager I suppose.

This beer is terrible. I’m not sure what a light lager can do to make itself good, but this beer made no effort.
