this is one of my dads favorite brews, so naturally I have consumed my share of it. my issue with it is the green bottle, so when it shows up in the states, even in the northeast, it often has that green bottle skunk to it, really frustrating because this can be quite nice when its fresh. the color is clear straw colored, richer than other yellow lagers, and although the head fades fast, its tall and bone white. the nose often has a skunk on it, but shows a pale and pils malt base that's quite light, and the cleanness of patient lagering. the flavor actually has some hops to it too, a lot more than other American takes on the style. its clean drinking beer, very refreshing and has a unique malt flavor that sets it apart from its peers. the handling and packaging of it are extremely problematic, but when once in awhile a fresh sixer is found, it can be tremendously refreshing. it is occasionally proof that cheap yellow beer can be delicious. orders of magnitude better than the BMC stuff here in the states, even at its worst.
