Clear & pale looking yellow straw colour with a thin bubbly, white lacing for a head. This settles to a very fine lacing around the surface, mainly sticking to the circumference of the glass though.

As I had anticipated, this one is very light on the nose with very little in the way of a noticeable aroma. There is however a faint grassy hops aroma and a slight bit of grain with hints of a skunky aroma. There is a light touch of citrus throughout although not a lot else.

Very much a lager here with the usual hops and a mild citrus flavour in the background. There is a sticky, sweetness towards the end and a bit of skunk too but again, not a lot else.

Quite light and smooth with a gassy, strongly carbonated feel to it. Not great on the palate, acceptable at best probably.

A pretty typical pale lager with not a lot going for it other than it goes down fairly easily. There is a skunky flavour lurking in the background throughout this beer and it wasn’t great although it wasn’t exactly offence on the taste buds either. Still not one that I would buy again though.

Very light straw colored, unnatural white head that disappears quickly. Smells of cider vinegar, like the inside of a keg cup, and high school. Tastes the same with a hint of citrus. Delayed metallic aftertaste. Relatively smooth up front, with a dry carbonated finish. Light bodied, yet pretty potent at 5.2%.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 11.2oz bottle into pint.

Appearance: a clear golden color with a fine white head that fades fast.

Smells: faint lemon and citrus hop

Tastes: a typical lager with a unique hop character.

Mouthfeel: this is a crisp mildly carbonated beer with a surprising flavorful aftertaste and no burn from the ABV.

Overall: I am personally not the biggest fan of this beer but my older brother likes it because he says "it is easy drinking"

This beer poured out as a clear looking yellow color with a thin white head on top. The smell of the beer was sweet with grains and malts. The taste of those same things came through and had very little hop bitterness at all. The mouthfeel of this beer is light and is fairly easy to drink on a regular basis. Overall this brew isn't anything special, I don't even know if I'd buy it again or not. But I am glad I tried it.

Reviewed from notes.

A. Pours out a clear pee-yellow with a mininal head that fizzles out almost instantly, no lacing to be found at all in this one.
S. Simple sweet grainy aroma, no frills to be found at all, sort of boring actually.
T. Simple sweetness again, with a touch of floral hopping holding the pleasant finish together.
M. Body is on the lighter side of medium thickness, carbonation is just adequate...overall this is a nice but forgettable lager.
