I honestly can't say enough good things about this brew. It's not quite perfect... and yet so close to being perfect.
Appearance is nice, very nice golden color, pours very nicely. Can't wait to dive into the beer.
Smell is malty and corny like an export lager should be, and yet somehow, somehow, manages to be appetizing.
Taste is incredibly blended. Nothing bitter. Nothing that truly sticks out like a sore thumb. All in all, almost so perfectly balanced that it's almost bland.
Mouthfeel is clean, crisp, and somewhat creamy. Just a bit of dullness at the end that drops it a notch from '5' level.
Drinkability is obviously, outstanding. Every time I begin drinking this beer, I start wondering why I don't have cases and cases of this stuff stocked up for myself.
