Two finger head that is fueled by tiny bubbles that comes from the bottom of the glass.
Clean pale golden color.
Malty and grassy hops aroma, smells similar to a German pilsner.
Good carbonation with medium bubbles.
Taste was a bit surprising, I was expecting more hops, not so bitter and a predominant sweet malty taste. Felt a little oxidation. Not so refreshing and today was a quite hot day.
Light body, but denser than pilsners. The 5.6% alcohol is perceived more than usual. Regular beer.

Nice, clear golden yellow crowned with a thick, creamy white head. Mild grain aroma with a hint of pear. Thin, watery body holding a faint malt taste and medium-strength hop bitterness.

An okay lager that didn't quite live up to my expectations based on appearance and smell. Still, it's light, refreshing, and easy drinking.

Best before 1/3/13.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and a slight skunky aroma. Taste is of malt, grass, and a slightly fruity flavor. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that is drinkable but nothing special for the style.
