The appearance is very good on this beer. Streaming carbonation and very good lacing and head retention.

The aroma is sweet and has notes of herbal hops, mineral water and sugar.

The taste is sweer with a slight bitter finish. One can tell it is attempting to emulate a good German pilsener. The taste is a little light with no off notes but nothing outstandingly pleasing either.

Mouthfeel is of mineral water,

Overall this beer is a lesser version of a German pilsner. They've added rice and made the flavour a little more bland. It is, however, an ok tasting beer and would suffice as a session beer with more quality than many European macro lagers. Better than Stella, Heineken etc.

My mark out of one hundred would be 75.
