look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

From Bottle fresh by 5-5-09 into pint glass

golden yellow w/ bubbly white head. falls quickly

smells a bit grassy - sweet corn

taste is not bad for style. surprising little hoppy finish. the rest is similar to smell. not impressive but on the better side considering style again.

to its credit- not real carbonated. real thin on palate

overall descent beer. would certainly choose over many macros

Serving type: bottle

3.16/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium gold body with a nice white head. Thin lacing down the glass.

Aroma: Quite strong malt and sweet grains for a pale lager, and a definite hop presence makes for an unexpected surprise.

Taste: Again, quite malty for the style, with a light fruitiness and honey aspects. Medium-low bitterness in the aftertaste. This one is a bit better than the usual offerings (such as Peroni etc), for one that likes beers that lean towards the malt side.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and medium body. Fairly average.

Drinkability: A good example of a macro lager that can be made pleasant. It was better than I was expecting, and perfect for pairing with the wonderful pizza that I had alongside. It won't set your tastebuds alight, but I would much prefer this than the majority of macro lagers on the market.

Serving type: bottle

2.61/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

A: pours a clear golden color with a decent head that fades to bites of lacing.

S: Mild aroma of a fruity sweetness with a bit of malt sweetness mixed in.

T: Taste of mild fruit and malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish.

F: Light body, crisp and smooth but a bit short on flavoer.

O: Typical non-offensive Euro Pale Lager.
