12 oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. This is somewhere in the netherland between "straw" and "golden". Crystal clarity, with active carbonation.
Nose is mostly herbal and a tad skunky unfortunately. Maybe some DMS in there as well. Not real promising, to be blunt.
Taste is mellow and malty...a faint whisp of spicy hops in the finish. Not real complex but it sure tastes good on a 103 degree day. Simple and pleasurable.
Mouthfeel is fairly slick, carbonation is high but appropriate for the beer. This is really easy to drink...only the skunk factor detracts. On tap it would be deadly.
Overall I really enjoyed this and could see myself knocking back a few on such a warm day as this. The price is very reasonable for an import and is makes this a high quality alternative when you just want a simple, easy lager but want better quality than BMC. I'll likely be working this in to the rotation in the future. Now if only the bottles weren't green...
