2.58/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

The beer is clear straw colored, hints of brown and green, an off white head that settles quickly, leaving quite some lacing, but also lumps on the surface.

The smell is weak lemon, some grass and bread.

Starting sweet, white sugar on corn flakes, some lemon juice, a short peak of alkaloid bitterness.

Medium low carbonation, small bubbles, a weak body, feels alcoholic. A dry finish.

Not being a greaser, I'll cruse with other beers this summer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

The colour is pale gold; the liquid is clear. The compact two finger head is white with a nice crater. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is sweet with some citric hops. It makes me think of orange jam and lemon acid. Some weak bitterness in the background.

The taste is somewhat bitter-sweet and clean. Notes of citric hops. Lemon/apple acid. Hints of sweet dough. The aftertaste is a bit unclean with flavours of alcohol, wort, citric fruit candy and hints of solvent.

The carbonation is mild to medium, the fresh bubbles medium sized. The liquid is semi-smooth.

No bad for a cheap lager: Decently fresh and clean.
