This was poured from the bottle into a pilsner flute. It has a light straw color with a decent head that settles quickly. Malt and hops are definately present in the aroma, with the balance being more towards the hops. The flavor is a very strong malt and hop balance, but tipped slightly to the malt side, as it's slightly sweet. It has a medium-light body with moderately high carbonation.

I suppose this is a decent session beer and good for a European 'macro'. This would probably not be my 1st choice of imports, but I do like it better than some mass-marketed European macros and sure beats the hell out of the majority of American mass-marketed beer.

Have had this many times, but picked up a bottle recently to review.

Pours a light, gold color. Almost no head. Strange. I didn't remember that. Lacing on glass.

Nice, crisp tasting. A solid session beer. Some malt strains, maybe a hint of citrus (lemon zestiness!), no real yeast or hops presence. Some nice mouthfeel.

Good beer.
