I've heard good things about this beer and decided to give it a try.
This sample is 5 weeks old.
It pours a very pale straw color that darkens after it gasses off.
The smell is faintly floral.
It tastes very nice...mild, but nice. No distinctive flavors, very little bitterness or sweetness, this is just a delicately flavored beer that has great drinkability.
It has a clean mouthfeel, nicely carbonated and enough alcohol to keep it from tasty too watery.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance - Large loose white soapy head with low retention and no stick. Clear pale gold body.

Smell - Corn. Faint malt. Almost odorless.

Taste - Corn and slight bubblegum sweetness. Unlike other beers in this style, there is absolutely no astrimgency, no metallic or other off flavors common in AALs and light lagers.

Mouthfeel - Light. Clean. Mild effervesnce. Best straight from the bottle. Pouring it into a glass ruins the carbonation.

Overall drinkability - Other than the lack of flavor, there are no off characters. Great light beer that pairs well with any dish because it make no attempt to compete or compliment. The black of beers.

Serving type: can
