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%.

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.

A: The beer poured a basic light amber with a thick head that quickly faded.

S: I am not getting much at all. Maybe some hops, but thats very faint too.

T: The beer is very weak and doesnt ahve much beer. Some grain and maybe some corn is all I am really getting. Pretty bad.

M: The beer has an average mouthfeel. Not tons of carbonation and a little crispness. Not bad ata ll.

O: I would never buy this beer. It is very weak and bland and just like a lot of the other Adjunct Lagers.

Decent head at first pour but settles very quickly.

Smell: Very light & mild hop aroma. Other than that there is not much to it.

Taste: Very Light bodied but clean and smooth. Slight and I mean a slight hop taste. A very faint citrus taste finish.

An okay beer but nothing to write home about.

A- Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that lasts longer than many other adjuncts, but only barely so.
S- Smell is clean grainyness. Fairly sweet. Not much to the nose but it's inoffensive at least.
T- Pretty sweet out of the gates. There is a slight apple like quality to it. Finish is more or less clean with some lingering sweetness.
M- Medium body for style. Low carbonation.
O- For an adjunct lager it's decently enjoyable and inoffensive. By adjunct standards, it's worth a try.

Served on draught into a frosted Estrella Damm stein in Ibiza, Spain. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger head of little cream, average thickness, and poor retention. Colour is a clear yellow. Appealing.

Sm: Clean barley. Some malt.

T: Malt and barley body with a lingering malty finish. Subpar and simple, but certainly refreshing.

Mf: Moderate thickness, but not too heavy. A bit syrupy. Too smooth. Wet and refreshing.

Dr: A lime ester is direly needed - or something to add to the complexity. It's too expensive (4 quid in Ibiza) for the quality. It refreshes, but doesn't satisfy.
