Pours a dark golden yellow with a small short lived white head. Aroma and taste is of grains, cereal, grassy and light fruity notes. A medium body palate, crisp with good carbonation. Finish is grains, grass and fruity. Overall a very non descript mass produced brew, but still an ok brew for summer drinking.

clear golden color with small head. foam needs more duration, but it leaves very thin cover which is enough to protect.
aroma is slight corn and herbal hops.
taste is not complex, standart lager. malt sweetness is dominating, but finish is more balanced.
light body, moderate carbonation. soft on palate.
not special, but this is drinkable summer lager.
