1.83/5 rDev -24.1%
look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle, no freshness date.
Appearance: Pale straw in colour with a minimal white lace.
Smell: The usual imported lager aroma plus a touch of skunk or DMS a.k.a. cooked veggies.
Taste: Light bodied with a thin malt palate. Crisp and grainy ... husk flavours also. A little astringent grain in the middle. Hops are evident with a slight bite of bitterness. After taste is clean and seems to be the best part of the brew all together.
Notes: Not much of a beer to hoot about, just an other "run of the mill" light lager. At around $20-24 a case ... you are better off buying a domestic light lager for around half the price. Great marketing and riding with the imported lager trend have made this less than decent brew a big seller in the US.
