The Premium Lager has been brewed lighter in body and flavor to respond to the American taste. Similar to American light lagers, but much fresher and more flavorful.

Pint at Naja's place, yes I visit this place a couple times a week if anybody was wondering

Not much smell at all, poured a golden color with a thin white head

Tasted like most light beers with a little spicier bite, but nothing to get excited over

Taste went away almost immediately

Good drink a lot of these becauase they are so so light

From notes. The beer came a barely yellow color with a finger of head that fell to ring the top. The nose was weak, slightly grassey with a slight noble hop. The flavor was very grainey and grassey with a light sweetness and minimal hop. The feel was moderate with a nice active carbonation. Not bad at all. A fair example of a light lager, but not something I would get a half litre of.
