Slightly darker than US light lagers, the head dissapates quickly, leaving only the impression of light malts and tangy hop. flavor is very slight, a bitterness that leaves immediately when swallowed, leaving no notable flavors other than light malts and bitter hops; same as the nose. Carbonation level is very heavy with a very watery mouthfeel, yet this same trait makes this beer as easy to drink as a diet soda. Unimpressive but inoffensive, and a less offensive flavor then most american light lagers. This is a beer whose whole is better than the sum of its parts.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with a fluffy one finger head. Actually good head retention thanks to the abundant carbonation.

Aroma of hay and light bread along with a touch of skunk. Some corn thrown in there too.

Flavor starts out with bread and hay and is actually not half-bad albeit very light. However it then completely disappears to nothing but a tinge of bitterness. I can't believe how quick the flavor just disappears. Extremely watery mouthfeel.

Overall, this beer is just barely a step above water. Almost no flavor whatsoever.
