Half finger head on a clear straw to bright golden colored body. aroma is minimal with grains and some sweet corn. Flavor is the same but I am happy there are no off putting flavors although little flavor is there at all. Light body and moderate to high carbonation. Easy to drink, not flavorful but nothing really to turn you off. Basically slightly bitter water.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy bright white head that quickly reduces to nothing. Minimal lacing is observed.

S: Light aromas of grain and rice adjunct malts.

T: Slightly sweet with flavors of the rice and grain adjunct malts. Some light amounts of bitterness in the finish.

M: Light bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin.

O: Very easy to drink and very sessionable. This is probably one of the less offensive light lagers as it at least still has some taste to it. Would not be on the top of the list of beers to have again.
