Unfortunately, I picked this up well after the 'best by' date so I'm not sure I should even be reviewing this, but here goes.
Clear straw golden color. Looks like any American macro on the shelves at a grocery. The head is a finger thick of white foamy bubbles. Little retention, no apparent lacing.
Slightly grainy, faintly floral, a bit of lemony citrus. The smells are all fairly muted and nothing really stands out as dominant.
The taste isn't terrible. It's very Czechvar-like in its buttery flavor. Has some grassy, grainy, floral taste to it. Kind of a lemony honey taste to it.
Not much body, but a faint citric sweetness to it. Kind of a grainy, grassy feel. Fruity tart finish, no hoppy bitterness. Buttery smoothness throughout.
Tastes and feels better than it looks or smells. Overall, it's a fairly easy drink. Could use more alcohol, but I think I prefer this to Budweiser or Czechvar.
