12 oz. can.

Looks a-okay. Bright straw color, good head formation, decent retention, and lacing around the glass.

Being the canned version, there's none of the skunkiness apparent in the bottles. Instead there's just a rather bland graininess. A little grassy and sweet. Quite mild, but about par for the pale lager style.

Flavor is overly sweet and lacks the crispness I'd like to have in a pale lager. Really mild on the hops. Carlsberg and Stella have much crisper and dryer flavors. Musty grain lingers on the finish, along with a chalky bubblegum off note.

Heavy-ish body for style. Carbonation seemed a bit low after the pour.

The esteem of this beer baffles me. I'd take most other Euro Pale Lagers over this, and I'd never pay full price for it.
