An aggresive pour of this beer produces a thin spittle pillow that quickly evaporates to give a clear view of the hazy, urine-colored beer below. Big carbonation bubbles cling curiously to the sides of my glass. Aroma is nothing but the faintest hint of apple.
The taste wieghs on the tounge despite the slightly watery mouthfeel of the beer. It tastes mostly of jimica with an assertive bitterness that eases in and out. What really makes this beer stand out however, is an intensely crisp finish that almost compares to Grolsch or Hienekin. There is a Wonderbready aftertaste. I noted a cheesey off-flavor on some sips.
The mouthfeel is a billion carbonation bubbles rebounding off your tounge like a tennis ball hit against a wall. Drinkability is rated high due to what I call "the potato chip effect". You know it is not good for you, you feel gross after having your fill, and it isn't really even that tasty, yet what you are ingesting is so unsubstantial you think nothing of popping one after another.

Pours a golden yellow color with a very fizzy 1 inch head that reduced quickly, wow just a ton of carbonation. Smell is a little dull some grain and faint hop. Taste is ok, sweet fruit notes with a little bitter in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and light.
Overall, it's an ok beer nothing that will knock your socks off, but also very drinkable. My suggestion for serving this beer...is that it tastes way better served very cold. Great beer for frozen mugs.
One more note, I always keep a few cans of this beer around for cooking brats, it makes one of the best brat hot tubs. Cheers!
