Clear golden lager with very thin, fine white head. A crisp lager aroma instantly forgettable. Taste is only a poor hop bitterness although I thought there might have been a slight apple taste though I couldn't quite find it again. It wasn't completely unpleasant until swallowing. High carbonation puts this on par with a pale lager. A dry bitter finish makes this neither refreshing or very pairable with the food I was eating. but hey, at least it was only $8 for a huge glass (sarcastic). I guess I can't say it was completely awful because I did finish it only that I don't want another one.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured a clear golden yellow with three fingers of fluffy white head that slowly receded to two fingers of fluffy white head leaving abundant lacing down the glass. A pretty nice, full look for a Euro Pale Lager, not bad. Scents of skunky hops, grainy malt, biscuity malt and some faint malty sweetness. An expected aroma for a green bottled Euro Pale Lager. Taste begins with slight sweet grainy flavors and faint maize, moving into some hop extract and floral/herbal hop flavors. Finish is semi-dry with a hop extract bitterness, grain husk and sweet malt. Aftertaste is dry with notes of herbal hops, floral hops and bitterness, with slight graininess. A decent flavor for a Euro Pale Lager, a lot more flavor than the American lagers. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation and semi-dry feel. Fairly true to form for a lager, not bad. Overall a fairly good Euro Pale Lager. Not the best, but a pretty good flavor profile overall, though the aroma is a bit of a letdown. Not bad but not really worth having again.
