light straw color with thin white head.
This is a funny lager - it has a faint whiff and taste of better continental pilsener-style lagers with the grassy fresh bread and slight sulfur note, but very much compromised by the corn they use, which adds a characteristic watery lightness with notes of chicken feed.
It is in fact quite drinkable, but goes past your tongue too lightly and quick. It would be a superior American macro-adjunct brew, but as a higher priced Euro-import it is rather bland and flavorless.
This is a great import to have for image conscious consumers that don't want to be burdened by taste, mouth-feel or finish while they look somewhat glamorous holding the bottle in public or private gatherings of distinguished philistines.

2.9/5 rDev -5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
A - It was a good rich gold color with a nicely forming head that remained present until about two thirds of the beer had been drank.
S - It had multiple distinct hop scents with a little bit of citrus and some more bitter notes.
T - I have not had a wide variety of Euro PA's so it may be a matter of style that I don't understand, but to me it started out as a good delievery of some very sharp/tangy flavours on a slightly sweet undertone, but the strong sharp after-taste just ruined the experience for me
M - It had a very strong carbonation to it, which didn't help the taste
O - Something I would never want to pick again if there's a selection, but a change of pace is always a good thing
Serving type: on-tap
