Poured from a bottle and served in a flute.

Appearance: Clear golden amber. Thin white head and no lacing on the glass.

Smell: smell was hoppy with some malts and grassy earthy notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium to light bodied. Taste was hops and grassy notes.

Overall: Pretty good beer. I found it very similar in taste to Heineken, but more refined I guess because it was a better beer. I would have this one again.

Sampled last night on 7/15/15 BUT it has been a while and last time this came in a green bottle. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 ounce) BROWN bottle now, do they still brew it in that green bottle? Anyways, bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a hazy honey-amber in color with a good 1-finger foamy white head. Some sheets of lacing was seen when sipped. Aroma is of wheat, biscuit with a hint of corn sweetness. Bit more going on with the taste with some roasted malts in the mix as well. Slight dry finish with a mild sweet bitterness for the finish but didn't last long at all. This one tastes MUCH BETTER than the one in the green bottle. The 'Green Bottle' one had a 'skunky' smell and taste to it where this one doesn't all all. MUCH IMPROVED for sure! Medium bodied with perfect carbonation.
