From 05/30/12 notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a clear golden color with one finger of fluffy bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grains, corn, wheat, bread, and some lightly floral notes. Not too bad, but not good.

t - Tastes of grains, corn, wheat, biscuit, bready malts, and lightly skunky notes. Worse than the nose; not very good at all.

m - Light body and high carbonation. A bit too carbonated.

o - Overall not a very good beer. Not a ton going on, a bit overcarbonated, and a tiny bit skunky in the taste. Would not want to have it again.

Draft pint at a ball game. Clear golden yellow with a thin white head with surprisingly decent lacing. Aroma is bread, yeast, biscuit, lemongrass, and some spice, probably coriander. Taste is bready, malty, and Belgian yeast with a spicy lemon twist. Kinda adjunct lagerish but ok.

Served on tap at Earl of Sandwich (EWR) in Newark, NJ

A: Pours a crystal clear bright yellow in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall soapy white head that reduces to an extremely thin film with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: Moderate aromas of adjunct malts (mostly corn) with some light sweetness. There is a lighter aroma of grassy hops.

T: The taste rather follows the smell, with the flavors of corn adjunct malts being dominant and contributing a light amount of sweetness. Then the light lingering bitterness from the grassy hops becomes apparent. The beer is actually pretty well balanced.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Refreshing and easy to drink but has more of the feeling of BMC than craft beer. Very sessionable as the flavors/aromas are not too intense and the ABV is moderate.

14.9 oz can poured into Stella Artois Chalice. 03/2012 on the bottom.

A: Pours a crystal clear golden-straw with a 2 finger puffy white head. Lots of visible carbonation. Head fizzles to a film in 4-5 minutes. Some lacing on the glass.

S: Pale malts, lager yeast, a sweet corn quality.

T: Mild sweet malt in the background, some yeast is present. Light taste, lingering carmel notes.

M: Thin body with mild carbonation. Light on the palate, perhaps a tad watery.

Overall certainly a drinkable lager. Would rather drink this over the macro lagers of America. For a Euro Pale Lager it accomplishes what it needs to.

I got a chance to give it a try at a party. From bottle to a pilsener glass.

A: Pale Yellow with almost no head.
S: Hoppy / Corn
T: Clean. Almost no taste. Mostly corn flavor.
M: Crisp like water.
O: Only worth buying over macro American lagers. Seems to have a lot of presentation. It's basically corn flavored water.
