A slightly hazy, yellow-gold body is topped by a good-sized head of bright white foam that shortly drops to a collar but leaves some very nice lace. The nose displays a sweet, grainy malt backed by delicate, floral and grassy hops. Its medium-light body is accentuated by a very fine carbonation that lends it a gentle crispness in the mouth. The flavor almost seamlessly melds the sweetish, grainy malt with grassy/floral/spicy hops; and it seems to just fade away in the finish. Impressive balance! Great drinkability! An impressive session lager that falls somewhere between a helles and a pils; but it doesn't have the strength or bitterness of the export style that they suggest it is. Quite nice!

I had this at a local pizza place (Uno's - they also serve Uno Amber, a pretty good beer made by the Boston Beer Co.) and it was not pleasant. Per the company's site, "This beer is brewed in the style of a premium export lager." I certainly hope premium exported lagers taste better than this.
Presented as a 20-oz. glass with zero head, the Bud Light-colored "premium export lager" had a malty aroma but, unfortunately, tasted terrible. I'm not sure if it had been sitting in the keg for some time, but it really disappointed. I kept thinking that I was drinking Bud Lite/Miller Lite/something-Lite. Flavor was really bland and was not impressive in the least.
After 3 attempts at drinking it, I asked the waiter to take it back and bring something else. I would like to try this again at the brewery's pub, just to see if I had a bad offering.
