This is an amazing example of a lager style beer. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Pours a beautiful amber color with a thin maybe 1/4" white head. The smell is light, a subtle dry hop smell to it perhaps. Very easy drinking tastes of a nice light hops flavor mixed with a light citrusy flavor. This is very easy drinking and has a great traditional clean lager taste. I especially enjoy the lightly dry finish to the sip. If your looking for something that is quality and easy drinking for a simple night , this is it!

Real boring plain old lager.... Not great by any stretch. Also not horrible either. Just plain Jane and mass produced, pretty much exactly what you would expect~
