Poured from bottle into pint glass.

Look: Clear, very very light yellow. Poured two and a half fingers of lingering white head. Carbonation visible throughout. Decent lacing while drinking,

Smell: Skunky at first. Then it kind of reminded me of white cheddar cheez it crackers.

Taste: Bland, typical lager flavor. Slightly bread like from the yeast. No fruity taste.

Feel: Very light, but coats the mouth well. Carbonation highly present.

Overall: Average. Nothing impressive. Just a typical lager.
