this beer is really really bad in american form. the green bottles are skunked 9 times out of 10, and its as boring as can be on tap. the keg cans save it a litttle bit, but theyre only good if your already shitfaced. pours a quickly flat yellow color with a disappearing head. smells like dead beer (most of the time). tastes like watered down malt juice with a metallic tinge, and a bitter aftertaste. it must just be poorly handled, because ive heard its excellent at the source. ill update this when i get there and try it, but for now i will never understand why this beer is at every bar in the world and thought to be a classy brew by the corn lager masses

From a Mini-Keg

Appearance: Poured into a pilsener glass, a nice head formed and lingered partway through the drink, leaving some thin lacing behind with it.

Smell: Fairly plane aroma, nothing really standing out. This would be a good example of what most people think of when asked 'how does beer smell.'

Taste: As with the smell, it is very plain and maybe somewhat sweet. Crisp as well, but nothing to really think about.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated. As the beer sits in your mouth the flavor seems to disappear, which was a very peculiar feeling. This was really the only part of the beer that put me off.

Overall: When its hot out and the beer is ice-cold, it is a nice drink to swig down. This would not be my first choice for such a day though, far from it.

Clean yellow with a fluffy, pure-white head. Pretty high visible carbonation and some drippy lacing. Sweet, somewhat spicy noble hop aroma along with cereal grain and pale floral notes. Sweet, crisp pale lager flavor with some grassiness. Surprisingly not bad, though the sweetness wears on the palate a bit. Thin, slick body. Really not too bad, though the price is too high for me to bother and the green bottles are an obvious turn off.
