Presentation: 12 oz green twist ... "Original Munich Formula" is stated on the label. No freshness date seen.
Appearance: Straw yellow in colour with a thin white lace which comes from a light champagne like carbonation.
Smell: Quite clean with faint grassy herbal hop and a hint of grain.
Taste: Crisp and light bodied with a handful of malt texture on the palate. Light yet prickly spicy hop bitterness holds its own to flavour the brew. A touch of sweetness hovers on top after the hops fade ... the finish runs clean with a pinch of residual sweetness. Doesn't taste like it was over filtered nor are there any off flavours.
Notes: Not bad ... not bad at all. Surprise surprise, this brew has taken a turn for the better now being brewed in Canada under contract by Labatt. Decent use of hops to balance the malt ... enough to suffice any beer geek and not too much to turn the macro drinker away. Give it a try ...
Serving type: bottle
