2/5 rDev -17.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5
Served by a friend at a BBQ. Poured from a 12oz bottle.
Poured into a Duvel Belgian beer goblet. Has a white head and looks alot like most other crap pilsners sold en mass in USA. Crip golden color that is appealing, but the color is a bit deceiving. Nose is grass and straw mixed with skunk. Maybe I got an old bottle but i doubt it.
Taste is light. Not very hoppy or malty. Kind of bland. There is skunk mixed with light banana and tart acid from the high carb. Not very good. Mouth feel is watery. Overall I am unhappy with this beer. Maybe on a hot day when I was very very thirsty, this might go down better.
But today was pretty hot and I was a little thirsty so the prospects are not good.
I will not be going here again unless I have no choice.

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.
