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.

not the worst wash on the market, but another generic macro euro lager type, this one falling on the sweeter side, with an extract malt vibe and a general lack of anything fresh or interesting. more carbonation would make this passable, and its not bad from the bottle, but a little air exposure in the glass and the beer goes flat. a little bitterness in the aftertaste, but hard to credit hops for that. its a little filling as well, which is odd for a beer this low in abv, it doesn't even work to catch a quick buzz. its not horribly off in flavor, which I guess is redeeming in some sense, but this is a pretty beat brew, and one to avoid if you are looking for quality lager.
