A- Straw colored yellow, a light version of a pale ale. Lacing is low.
S- Typical import lager smell. Has a touch of cooked veggies.
T&M- Malt is thin with some grain and husk flavors. Hop bite is okay and leaves a crisp, clean finish with minimal aftertaste.
D- For a light beer, it is okay but I would just stick with a light, crisper style before moving to this on a regular basis. A good kolsch or helles is a better choice. This can be expensive so just go for the good stuff.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: can
