Pours the typical clear yellow color but with a half decent white head and lots of carbonation. The aroma is skunky, like a typical euro lager but worse. The taste is a dry mildly bitter flavor with a sharp skunky tang. Mouthfeel is barely above other watery versions of light lager with a typical amount of carbonation. Drinkability is slightly above the average light lager with a drier, less corny flavor. Not a bad thirst quencher but not the premium classy beer drinker's light beer as it's marketed.

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.
