1st Review

Rating: 3.66

2nd Review:
Serving: Bottle, from the bottle
Served: 28 Nov 2013

Second time reviewing this one after having a lot more beer under my belt compared to when I first reviewed this.

Appearance: Had this one from the bottle, so I can't really speak to how it looks in a glass. Good branding though, nice bottle look, and I like the paper around the neck. A sophisticated, clean look.

Smell: Again, from the bottle, so not much to say here. Smells like beer, without too much else going on.

Taste: Compared to other Euro Pale Lagers, this is a clear cut above the rest. A nice, crisp, clean taste, unadulterated with American corn sweetness. No skunkiness despite the green bottle.

Mouthfeel: Bubbly and spritzy, very lively carbonation initially.

Overall: A simple beer and a crowd pleaser. A great, easy drinking party beer that is a clear step above the Football beers of the BMC ilk or Heineken family. One of the best Euro Pale Lagers I've had, and one I'd likely buy if hosting people who might night be keen on the craft scene.

3.21/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 1.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

appearance is no better than say Budweiser. perhaps even worse.
That aside, this beer smells fantastic, such a surprised. The taste is at first a reflection of the smell then immediately dies down to something far less impressionable. Undoubtedly does that kill a point or so in the taste score. With a beer of this piss yellow hue of course it will be a tad watery. And so the mouthfeel lost a point or so. Overall since this beer has some perks, I say give it three stars. Try it at least once. Its okay.
