330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 10/22/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, pear, cracker, bready grain, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with well balanced pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with weak strength. Taste of lemon, pear, cracker, biscuit, bready grain, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, cracker, biscuit, bready grain, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid pale lager. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

I like this beer it has a little bitter taste, It was pretty cheap at Cosco 24 pack of 16.9 oz cans for $20.99. For the money taste and alcohol content this is a winner. Better than domestic adjunct (corn,rice) for about the same price. It seams heavier than most common imports and still has a high alcohol content .

Focused and rich, tastes like sweetened chamomile iced tea. Light gold in color; honey, grainey and hay aromas; Light-bodied and sweetish with medium acidity and a peppery finish.

Sampled last night on 10/15/14. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 ounce) with some embossing on the bottle also with 'BEST BEFORE: 05.06.15' on the lower back label. Bottled chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a tulip glass.

Pours a clear golden straw-yellow in color with a thin white head. Some spotty lacing is seen that clings to the sides of the glass. The aroma is of grains, malts and hops with a hint of citrus zest. Pretty much the same for the taste. Does have a slight bitter finish as many of these type of brew style has. Medium bodied and carbonation. Really not a fan of this style of brew.
