Pours out a light clear yellow with white foamy head. About one to two fingers high depending of how aggressive you pour. There is some great lacing around the glass and the retention is average. The head sticks around as a think blanket of foam till the last drop.
The aroma is rather light. Soft grain matched with a grassy hop.
First flavor to hit the palate is light grain and metallic taste. Quickly that grainy flavor is dominated with a very clean and grassy hop. The light grassy hop lingers for a bit.
Light and carbonated with a very crisp and clean finish. Thirst quenching is how I would describe it.
Overall this is you average premium Euro lager. Easy to drink and quenches your thirst, but at 8.99 for six pack of 11.2 oz. of beer is very disappointing. There is nothing wrong with this lager. It is just there are better or equal lagers on the market.

2.46/5 rDev -25.5%

Pours a clear, bright, straw yellow with a voluminous white head. Scattered lacing results when the head dissipates to a chunky film.
Smell is missing. A lot of inhalation results in little being found, some citrus/floral hops, some faint malt. Is this a BMC product?
Taste is much more prevalent with the aforementioned citrus & floral hops, malt, a wee bit of alcohol but no burn, some saltiness crackers, maybe some apple?
Medium bodied with restrained effervescence. A decent, fading, aftertaste. This isn't a BMC brew, the hops are not overpowering, it has some flavor and some balance. There really isn't anything to recommend this but it's no drain pour either. To quote a friend, "it doesn't suck". But that is the best thing I can say about it.
