3.23/5 rDev +19.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Presentation: 24oz gren pop-top bottle with classic Heine label
Appearance: Bright gold beer with stark white cap which slowly fades to a soapy film; nice lazy carbonation
Smell: A big ole kick of skunk right off the bat; I expected this. After a few minutes of breathing, however, the skunk subsides radically, and the aromas are of simple sweet cereal grains, very light sweet malt, and grassy hops. Nothing bad, but pretty standard for the style.
Taste: Fairly juicy and fruity up front, backed with light cereal grains and a bit of metallic bitterness on the finish. Ends medium-dry. Nothing offensive, but not much of anything going on here either.
Mouthfeel: Fairly light-bodied
Drinkability: Pretty high
Conclusion: This isn't all that bad; it's good for washing down a good pizza as I'm currently doing; this is better than the typical BMC lager, but I wouldn't buy this to drink on its own.
Serving type: bottle
