A- Pours a very, very pale golden color, with a one finger head. Surprisingly good retention for the style, and a constant stream of bubbles from the bottom of the glass, a la champagne.
S- Typical. Raw grain, yeasty, slightly skunked hops, etc. a bit more prominent aroma than many other euro lagers, but the same idea.
T- Clean, crisp, and thin. A hint of skunky hops all the way from front to back, and some residual corn sweetness on the finish. Touch of DMS, and a touch of skunk. Exactly what you'd expect from the style.
M- Thin, insipid, soda-like carbonation, and generally uninteresting. Just what you'd expect here.
D- If you enjoy the flavor, you can sling these all night long.
overall, I find this to be slightly better than the average Heineken, Stella, Grolsch, etc euro lager. It is still fairly boring, full of defects, skunked, etc, but out of the groups of euro lagers, this is one of the slightly more interesting ones. At least this one is a little more clean than the others.

2.63/5 rDev -4.4%

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.
