A: The beer is crystal clear amber yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of pale malts are present in the nose along with subtle hints of corn and grassy hops.
T: The taste follows the smell and is mostly dominated by light flavors of malts. There is a light amount of bitterness, which masks any traces of sweetness. Slight bits of grassy hops are also noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is relatively easy to drink because it doesn't feel that heavy on the palate and does a very good job at masking any traces of alcohol from the taste. Despite the green bottle, no skunk is evident. It's not a bad lager, except that it can be considered a little bland.

Pours a yellow-amber with decent head retention. Malty aroma with some skunkiness, notes of Belgiumy yeast. Mild fruity flavors of grape skin and caramelized plantain accompany a strong, malty beer beverage. It's not great. I could see it accompanying a large, greasy pizza. Or a dimly-lit hipster-Euro-trash college party.

Nose spicey malts, corn, grass, faint skunkiness & burnt caramel. Taste crackers, slight spicey, grass, sweet malt, ABV, honey. Ok Pils!

Pours gold with a small head.
Slightly skunky aroma with some grassy and spicy hops alongside biscuity and grainy malt.
Flavours are a little harsher but retain some of the spicy hops and grainy malt. Some cardboard notes.
