This brew pours a golden color about 50% opaque with a two finger light fizzy head and good carbonation.

The smell is kind of dank malt. A little soapy.

The taste was not bad, there was that crisp, clean cracker like lager taste however it was buried under a soapy taste which was present throughout from beginning to end. There was also a very slightly grainy taste but this added to, rather than distracted from the overall taste.

This is really not bad for an adjunct lager; even with that soapy taste I would drink it again, this could be a session beer on a hot summer day. I would drink it again. It might help that I was not expecting much from this beer.
