2.5/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Quite clear pale golden color with a moderate amount of slow-rising carbonation. The small off-white head fades to a paper-thin layer after a couple of minutes. The lacing is quite broken, but decent looking.

Aroma: Very pungent skunky aroma, a consequence of the clear (OK, it is faintly greenish) glass bottle. Beneath the skunk there is a sweet caramel note and some mild hops.

Taste: Begins with faintly sweet malt and a slight sting of carbonation. Towards the end of the taste, a lingering metallic hop bitterness appears. Finishes dry with astringent grain flavor.

Mouth feel: Overall this beer seems quite watery.

Drinkability/notes: The worst German beer that I have ever had. And when are brewers going to throw in the towel on clear glass bottles? Samuel Smith's seems to have finally abandoned clear glass, when will the rest?

A-golden but nothing special

T-watered down metallic taste with very little malt and corn taste. Not original becks made in the USA now and tastes like skunks natty light

S-skunk smell period

Mouthfeel? Feels like tonic water

Only thing I like about this beer is after 6 you don't feel bloated. Gives a strange buzz though. Only 64 calories what can you expext
