A 330ml bottle with a BB of Oct 2014. Acquired as part of a 4-pack from a B&M store.

Poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. A clear golden colour with light carbonation. Forms a decent head of white foam that lasts for a minute or two before dissipating. Some lacing. Aroma of light malt with hints of stewed leaves and a touch of cardboard. Faintly harsh.

Tastes of weak malt with a dry finish. Notes of ultra-light malt, stewed leaves, harsh cardboard and a twinge of solvent. Unpleasant background flavour. Well-attenuated, followed by a crisp bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with decent carbonation and a thin, watery body. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of acrid stewed leaves and woodchips.

Meh - another subpar macrolager. Looks OK, while the aroma and flavour are dull and plagued by subtle off-notes that linger on the palate. Watery body. There's hardly anything to it; faint stewed leaves but that's it. Might be refreshing on a very hot day, though even then I would suspect that you could find something better. Give it a miss.
