Bottle at Pei Wei poured into a pint glass.

A: Pale yellow and perfectly translucent with a small white head.

S: Apple with some rice and corn. Simple and inoffensive. I get a light sweetness and a little biscuit.

T: Rice with biscuit and a little apple. Not much else to report. Simple. There's a little sulfur in there and there's a corny sweetness.

M: Light in body with high carbonation.

Overall: An insipid lager but not a bad one.

Serving type: bottle
