2.25/5 rDev -28.6%
Appearance: Adjunct lager looking golden hue with a white foamy 2 finger head.
Smell: sweaty hay smell, very off putting. Smells very BMC lager like.
Taste: slightly floral witha faint citrus taste other than that it taste very cheap adjunct lager with a slight skunk.
Mouthfeel: tingly clean feeling on the tongue
Overall it was a horrible beer which I will not be buying again, either a 6/12 or in the sampler 12 pack. It was far to close to a BMC tasting beer with a bit of skunk. Maybe I had a bad batch but i highly doubt it because my dundee beers were far less impressive even for a "cheap beer"

2.45/5 rDev -22.2%
12oz bottle (no date noticed) poured into a Foonf Zane pilsner glass.
A - Pours a very pale, almost Bud Lite straw yellow color, crystal clear (despite the bottle quoting "Hazy and Hoppy" - hazy no - not complaining, we'll see about hoppy), with a finger of bright white foam with pretty good staying power. Endless streams of carbonation bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass.
S - Grainy, cereal like, sweet and sugary up front with a flowery and perfume-like hoppiness backing it up. Not as crisp or bitter as I'd expect from the style...very soft, sweet and bready.
T - As with the aroma, very soft and delicate...sugary sweetness, grainy malt and floral hops all the way. Bitterness is lacking, fading into the background behind the malt. Rather adjuncty and macro tasting...fairly bland.
M - A bit thin and watery, carbonation is noticeable, but too low for my tastes. Adjunct grain off flavors dominate and point out how under hopped this pilsner is. Drinks like water...
O - Had decent hopes for this one which have proved to be founded in naive belief that this might be a traditional German style Pils. Turns out to be not much more than a macro style light beer in a freshly labeled container (which is 0 for 2 in its claims). Oh well, live and learn, try, try again...and so on.
