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

Bought a slab of these from my local supermarket in Australia, was priced at $33, had never seen these before or even heard of them, so decided for the price they were worth a shot, especially if they were imported from Germany.

Positives:

Size of the bottles fit well into the fridge.
Very little carbonation so good for people who arent interested in taste.
Looks reasonably pleasant once poured, nice copper colour with 2 finger head.

Negatives:

Smells horrible, like burnt rubber.
Tastes fairly bad, a combination of metal and the same burnt rubber.

OVERALL:

Think its fairly certain that this is a mass produced lager, much like the German version of Melbourne Bitter (still way better than that though)

2.5/5
