Amber pour with small head. Quickly fade to thin layer. No lacing.
Very fruity and floral aroma, strong sweet malty backbone, with cereal, musk, confectionery. Some spicy hops would have been good.
Taste is pretty boring. Sweet malt, faint corn, low hop bitterness. A bit of hallertauer or something. Again, needs more hops.
Light body, medium carbonation. Pretty good for a lager.
Interesting aroma makes this better than many other pale lagers around... but the taste is 'same old, same old'.
