Pours a small one finger white head that is already almost gone, the body is completely see through, yellow in color. Looks pretty horrible to me, I have no idea how this beer gets a C, because it looks like a adjunct lager to me, actually, it looks worse than some adjunct lagers, it's not even giving me any lacing. The smell is just full of skunk, maybe a little bit of malt underneath that, and then some hop underneath that, it's just so hard to detect anything when the smell of skunk is just blasting you in the face. The smell really isn't that great, I mean it smells like it's got some girth to it, but it's just all f'd up by all the skunk. We'll see how this beer tastes, but I don't have too much hope. God, the flavor is horrible, it taste like water mixed with alcohol and skunk. I mean it's almost undrinkable. I guess it's crisp? I mean I'm trying to find good things to say about it, I mean I guess it has more flavor than a bud, but it's not a good flavor. I really remember liking this beer more, but this....this beer is horrible. Btw, if anyone cared, I am getting 0 lacing out of this beer. I mean, I can drink it, it's beer, I wont hate drinking it, but....this is one of the last beers I would prefer to drink out of all of the beers out there in the world. I hate to say all of this because I'm italian, I want to like this beer, it's got a cool label, but man. Mouthfeel is bad, drinkability is bad, I don't know what else to say, I'm shocked at how bad this beer is, I really am.

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.
