3/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a bright and clear light golden yellow color and displays a huge fluffy white head that just won't go away. This beer demonstrates active carbonation bubbles and spotty lacing inside the pint glass. The nose is virtually non-existent, as is characteristic of most light lagers, but some malt sweetness can be detected and there is no tell-tale skunkiness or other off notes here. Doesn't smell bad; it just doesn't smell like much of anything at all. The palate is much the same - very unchallenging, of course, but this beer is designed to be drinkable, right? Slightly sweet malt flavors are predominant and there is just enough hop backbone to keep it in balance. Finish is clean and dry with light acidity. Beer snobs love to slam this beer right along with the typical American-made light lagers, but I don't know that this is fair. While this beer is high on drinkability, and quite plain in almost every respect, it doesn't contain any of the off-flavors that characterize so many of the domestic macros. I can enjoy this beer with an appropriate meal and I'll select it over almost any domestic light lager if given the chance. I'm not saying this beer is great, but I am saying it is better and slightly more flavorful than it's American contemporaries.

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.
