look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: Big old 22oz silver sculpted can -- I love these things. Batch number, no freshess date.

Appearance: Pale yellow liquid with a very lively carbonation level. This forms a thin white lace that remains consistent for most of the brew.

Smell: Rather clean in its aroma with faint grain and floral hops.

Taste: Crisp and refreshing. Body is light, mouthfeel is a bit creamy due to the carbonation. Immediately there's a wonderful lemon/lime hop bitterness and mild sharpness that flushes and wakes the palate, its flavour lingers for a bit, then contributes a small dose of dryness on the palate. Malt flavours are very light with a balancing sweetness that is spot on for this type of brew. As the beer warms, malt flavours become more pronounced but I recommend drinking this beer cold. Finishes with faint residuals of both hop and malt characters.

Notes: This is the same beer that is sold in 12 and 16oz sizes, however we have to give the can it's due respect. Hands down, this brew is at the top of the list for some of the better mainstream lagers imported into the US. Goes extremely well with Asian dishes, working as an ideal palate cleanser.

Serving type: can
