The beer pours a pale yellow color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light pale malt scent with a dry and slightly musty lager yeast aroma. The taste is decent as well. It has a smooth pale malt flavor that goes down easy and finishes dry and bitter slightly musty lager yeast taste. The mouthfeel is average. It is a low bodied beer with adequate/good carbonation. This is a pretty damn good lager. It's light and refreshing with a solid flavor. As far as lagers go, this is a good one.

355ml single bottle - what better thing to have while watching the replay of the Brazil/Cameroon game from earlier today?
This beer pours a clear, very pale golden straw colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and chalky eggshell white head, which leaves some nice craggy webbed lace around the glass as it quickly abates.
It smells of sweet, sugary corn, rice pudding, a bit of paint thinner, bland, rather stale orchard fruit, and maybe a touch of wet, musty hay. The taste is gritty corn mash, pale grainy malt, a now indistinct, and fairly soft fruitiness, and very little in the way of hops, good or bad (so bad, by default).
The carbonation is nothing more than plainly frothy, the body medium-light in weight, and kind of clammy in its generic smoothness. It finishes off-dry, strangely, a grainy mustiness cutting deeply into the lingering corn-bred sweetness.
For the proclaimed style, this is obviously a non-starter - no hops, adjunct malts, for the most part, and zero crispness. However, this is another one of those worldly 'Pils' that probably works well enough when the situation and the climate are in agreement. It may be finally summer up here where the sun doesn't really set this time of year, but I don't think I'll be grabbing any more of these, Brazil advancing or not.
