Been drinking this one on and off for years. Thought for sure I had rated it. Nope!

A: Two fingers eggshell head. Retention is moderate. Golden straw in color. Vigorous carbonation. Excellent lacing in the glass. What macro lagers should look like.

S: Biting herbal hop presence. Lemony, bit of sulfur. Cracker like undertone of malt.

T: Good clean fun! There is nothing overly complex about this one. Herbal noble hoppiness. Same touch of sulphur. Lemon rind, slighty saltiness. Very cracker like malt. Finish is absolutely clean and dry. No lingering aftertaste of skunk like many Euro Pales have.

M: Light, easy to drink. Carbonation is prevalent but not overpowering like it has a tendency to be in so, so many light lagers.

O: Solid beer. Beach beer. Lawnmower beer. Summer beer. Enough flavor to keep ya happy while being a thirst quencher. I forgot how much I liked this one. Will be revisiting again.

This was very reminiscent of Heineken but skunkier. It's probably due to the duration of shipping. It's wasn't particularly great but I'll drink it if it's available. I wasn't too impressed though. I would like to try their other beers for sure.

This is one of my favorite beers. Very reminiscent of the beer I had at Oktoberfest in Munich (view my avatar)

Beer pours a light gold colour. Lots of carbonation.

Smell is little on the heavier side. Not offensive though.

Taste is what a beer should be. Strong, but not too strong. A little too much aftertaste for my liking, but I will deal with it.

As stated before, this beer has lots of carbonation. Goes down a little harsher then desired.

Overall I love this beer. So glad I had the chance to sample in the beer fests of all beer fests. Give this one a try. Does not disappoint.
