Our pour reveals a crystal clear, pale straw colored brew, with highly active carbonation. The white two finger head is somewhat resilient, and clings to the glass' walls. The aroma is metallic and malty. It does, however, hide some subtle notes reminiscent of apple juice. The players from the nose come through fully in the taste, which begins with a hollow, tinny assault on the taste buds. The sip peaks with a light malty sweetness, leaving a thin appley taste through the end of the swallow. This brew is thin bodied and overly carbonated, and while it has a standard abv, its drinkability is somewhat diminished.
Overall, when we were drinking this brew we kept saying "apple juice". It packs a light punch in the flavor department, and the overwhelming carbonation leaves the drinker somewhat burpy and unsatisfied.

12oz bottle poured into a lager glass.
A: Dull golden straw color. No real head to speak of, it doesn't stick around. Tiny dots of lacing.
S: Dusty sort of grainy scent. Vague light fruits. Pithy, lemony hops. Hay and grass.
T: Earthy, dusty grain. Odd pervasive sweetness. Grape leaf and vague fruitiness. Grass and hay. Clean. Drying grainy finish.
M: Light bodied. Some malty firmness. Moderate carbonation.
O: I can see how this would be refreshing in its native climate, but then again I'd probably chug any beer you put in front of me while the hot African sun was beating down me. A pretty average "Euro" feeling lager in every respect.
