2.75/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a deep, dark amber color with a bit of head retention and very little carbonation, which I took as a positive sign considering how many lagers seem overly fizzy. The aroma is pleasantly sweet and malty, and sweetness is the predominant feature of the taste as well. After the sweet sensations fade I’m left with a rather thin, watery flavour. I will confess that my expectations were not set very high for this brew, and although it didn’t surpass my expectations by any great degree I still find it drinkable and not unpleasant with a meal. I would certainly choose it over the standard Heineken lager, but overall it lacks the texture of a really good dark lager.
