2.8/5 rDev +15.7%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 4
Appearance - Straw yellow color with mild carbonation. Looks refreshing. Almost no head.
Smell - Some odd semi-processed smell with something else trying to break through. I was disappointed as I kept drinking more because I had to smell the beer everytime I took a sip from my pilsner glass--the smell wore on me.
Taste - Went down smoothly with a mostly hoppy taste and the slightest hint of bitterness at the end. Tastes kind of average to me for a macro--nothing distinct, yet drinkable.
Drinkability - I would consider drinking this occasionally if it wasn't for the steep price. This beer is like the Miller Lite of Holland, average at best. Otherwise, should be pretty drinkable.

2.58/5 rDev +6.6%
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.
