3.04/5 rDev +3.1%
Appearance: Clear goldish yellow, thin head disappears quickly.
Smell: Corn, grain, and grass, a little bit skunky.
Taste: Corn, grain, and grass.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry, and smooth. No real aftertaste to speak of, other than a hint of skunkyness.
The Verdict: Meh. This tastes like Germany's answer to Bud Light. Drinkable but forgettable.

16 fl oz can served into a New Belgium stem-goblet in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Expectations are low; I had this from the bottle quite some ago and I was not impressed. Acquired at Trader Joe's for cheap.
Served straight from the refrigerator. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.
A: Pours a 2.5 finger beige colour head - quite thin - with okay cream and decent retention. Body colour is a light very pale transparent copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Clean pale malts. Salt. Minimal floral hopping.
T: Pale malts. Burnt rubber. A light saltiness. Minimal floral hops - I hardly detect any. Incredibly simple. Balance is off. No yeast or alcohol comes through. A barley foundation.
Mf: Weak. Thin. Smooth. Wet. Sharp from slight overcarbonation. A bit buttery. Too wet. Hardly feels tailored to the flavours.
Dr: Drinkable but forgettable. A cheap Trader Joe's beer that masquerades as a German treat purely for marketing purposes; this is one to be avoided. I'll steer clear from it in the future. A failure within the style. Quite underwhelming.

Pint can poured into a glass.
The appearance is a very clean and pale yellow color with a head that disappears rather quickly. The color is more rich and yellow than your standard American macro lager offering, but not as richly golden as other lagers I have seen. The smell was basically non-existent with just a touch of sweetness coming through. The taste was very light and tasted vaguely of honey. The flavor had just a touch of hops, but was mainly honey like sweetness through and through. The mouthfeel was thin and watery and refreshing.
Okay, so this came in a preselected box from World Market titled World's Best Beers" or something like that. My friend's dad picked it up in Ohio. I could tell by one glance that most would be relatively flavorless pale lagers. He offered I take one so I chose this one. It wasn't nearly as good as I was expecting.

Poured into a pint glass.
Light golden body with a loose head that dissipated to a film and ring. 3.0
Grassy hops, crackery pale grains with light must, and not much else. 3.0
Stanky Euro hops and a musty, almost fruity, pale grain with serious huskiness. Slightly astringent with a semi-steely flavor. Hint of green apple or Pixie Stick in the finish. 3.0
Medium-light body with medium-light carbonation. Slippery feel. Lower drinkability. 2.5
