Golden with a tiny white head. Excellent clarity and moderate carbonation.

Not much here at all. Faint whiffs of bread and cereal grains.

Hints of bread, cereal grains and Munich malts. A sprinkling of brown sugar. There is a strong off-flavor of green apple or something.

Weak.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A - pours a crystal clear pale golden color. Thick 3 fingers worth of pearly white foam dissipates slowly to a ring around the rim leaving behind spotty lacing.

S - skunky and herbal European hops dominate the nose. Probably in part to this being packaged in a green glass. Beyond the pungent dead skunk there are notes of pleasant leafy greens and crispy bread crust.

T - grainy and doughy flavors mingle on the tip of the tongue. Skunk in the middle. Leafy green hop notes on the backend.

M - crisp texture. Medium bodied. High carbonation.

O - an average mass produced lager. Didnt cost me anything so thats a plus. But the skunk flavor/aroma is just way to pervasive to be a pleasurable beverage.
