As with Yuenglings lager this doesn't possess the adjunct flavors associated with American lagers. It has a nice barley graininess, slight caramel malt but an off putting metallic watery quality. It also holds a rather harsh sharpness in flavor and taste with a sour after taste. Fan of the standard but this is not worth the dip in taste to save some calories.

Pours a light yellow with almost no head. The smell is very light with only some rice scents coming through. The taste is underwhelming with some rice from the malt and a bit of bitterness from the hops. It's not complex but it is a decent light beer for the price.
