From the green 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 12.2014-L3523202. Sampled on May 2, 2014. I figured I would go with an old classic for my 1,700th review.

It pours pale lager yellow with a fizzy white head and active carbonation that fades away fast.

Sadly - green bottle skunkiness kicks in. But once I get beyond that I do pick up a nice dose of traditional German pale malts, toasted bread, and crackers. These other elements make the skunk more palatable.

Light to medium body.

The flavor also has those pale, toasted malts but there is also a delicate sweetness that introduces itself to the mix and a clean, dryish finish. Everyone remembers their first Girl right? Well it's not my first so I remember my last.

Poured from green bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a two finger head of a pure white color. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – Now being poured from a green bottle this is not too surprising, but the beer is full of a big skunky smell. Along with this aroma is a decently strong grainy smell as well as a bit of a grassy and hay like aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a drier grainy taste with just a hint of a caramel sweetness. As the taste advances some more grassy and herbal flavors come to the tongue along with a light skunk flavor. Overall the skunk is quite light however and with a bit of a biscuit flavor and a slightly dwindling of the caramel more toward the end of the taste, one is left with a mild and somewhat crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the thinner and more watery side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly higher side. Both are quite appropriate for the style of the brew and make for an easy drinker.

Overall – Nothing really special here. A dry lager that, unfortunately due to the desire to put in a green bottle, has a slightly skunky flavor with a big skunk aroma. Nothing too special, but not insanely offensive either.
