3.29/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Undated, recently purchased, 12 oz bottle served in a lager glass. Pours very light with a generous white head and lots of visible carbonation.

The carbonation is medium-high and feels surprisingly soft. Light body.
They must use a similar hop load to Heineken because it has a similar flavor profile, including a hint of skunk in the aroma and aftertaste. Aroma is also pilsner-like, with a stronger hop note than found in the flavor.

O: Aside from the feel, this is a remarkably average lager. Served its purpose, nonetheless. being thirst-quenching and refreshing on this first hot day of summer.

3.84/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Clear straw color covered with a bubbly pure-white head that has decent retention. Aromas of peppery, herbal hops, gently sweet Pils malt, and clean lager yeast. Cereal-like Pilsner malt sweetness in the flavor with some grassy noble hops to balance and a touch of honey. Body is a little better than light keeping things very drinkable. A good light lager for sure and a more than solid choice for hot weather drinking.

Serving type: can
