Mystery bottle that appeared in my refrigerator between 2-3 weeks ago. Origins unclear, so I may as well review it! Live review of a 12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Clear straw-colored body with a half-finger of foamy white head which quickly dissipates. Splotchy lacing left around the rim of my glass.

Aroma is reasonably strong (at least in comparison to our state-side equivalents) and malt-forward. Pilsner malts, notably a generic graininess as well as that tell-tale DMS aroma. Light floral hops and a neutral yeast.

Flavor is a tad thin, but balanced and not unpleasant. Grains and creamed corn with a slightly spicy, floral finish just like the nose indicated. Slightly sweet honeyish flavor as well, but it is very subtle.

Thin body and well-carbonated. Slick and crisp mouthfeel, almost with a very bubbly almost sparkling wine-like finish.

Overall, this beer is what it is. It's a generic Euro Lager, but not a particularly bad one. Thin and drinkable. It seems like a sub-par attempt at a Helles, but then again isn't that what this style is all about?

very interesting beer. It’s not awful but it’s not super great. It just is quite plain and super drinkable. It’s the best Euro Pale Lager I’ve had. This beer is really hard to describe. It's just a very satisfying beer.
