2.8/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Light yellow to straw colored. Sort of an average look. Head quickly dissolved into near nothingness.

Smell: There's a slight malty aroma, but you have to look for it. Barely noticable.

Taste: Sharp, nearly acrid taste of the hops hits the palate first, Very sharp, and then just as quickly gone to a just perceptible malt/hop taste.

Mouthfeel:Eh. Not memorable. Not bad enough to warrant anything below a 2.5, not good enough to warrant anything above a 3.5. 3 it is then. Slight carbonation, but barely tickles the back of the tongue.

Drinkability: It's not horrible, but it's not all that great either. Perhaps my standards are too high? When I think lager, I think a crisp, memorable flash of a moment. What I get here is a brief walk-by. Better than some beers, but worse than those beers I respect.

Serving type: bottle
