Light gold color, small white foamy head. Aroma is grainy and sweet. A light tasting, slightly hoppy lager. No green bottle skunkyness. Some maltyness. Mouthfeel is full. Good balance. Clean taste. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Serving type: bottle

2.5/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Kind of an odd duck here. Served cold and poured with a smallish, white head that settle to a light, scummy cover and lots of lace. Color is a clear yellow with some bubble trails. Aroma is mainly skunk ( stored in cooler near fluorescent lites) with a little malt and hop. Flavor is mainly hop bitter and carbonic tang with a little malt/grain sweetness. For such a low alco/calorie beer the flavor stands out, but in a way that isn't all that pleasing. Body is ok and carbonation is sharp. Finish is like flavor, long, bitter, and acid sharp.

Well, perhaps not the worst low ABV beer i've had, but its still quite thin and weak, not much flavour, some chemically hops in the finish, but thats about it, sorry i really can't say much about it, quite boring.
