Added again after vanishing from Beer advocate...

Bright golden color with a thick head that would not go away (even 30 minutes later) and leaving laces, to make any true Pilsner envy.
Very light aroma of bready malt and very distant floral hops.
Sweet flavor of pale malt and corn with floral and herbal hops. A little cardboard on the finish.
Light body with good carbonation.
An adjunct lager a bit over average.

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - Clear, pale golden yellow color. 2 fingers of white head with some retention. Sparse lacing. Lots of bubbles rise to the top of the beer. Looks decent.

Smell - Some adjuncts and light grassy and grainy aromas. Nothing offp putting and nothing powerful here either.

Taste - Fairly bland with some corn which makes the beer a bit on the sugary sweet side. Retains a clean and refreshing taste too.

Mouthfeel - Clean crisp and refreshing. Medium- high carbonation.

Overall . Not a lot to say other than a better than expect AAL and definitely preferred to many of them.

Can't think of anything good to say except for maybe the price?
