Pours pale yellow with a really pillowy head. It looks like the memory foam in my pillow.
Smells like wine. Pretty unappealing smell. Taste is smooth and malty, but almost no detectable hops. Finish is clean though.

Not a really great Euro lager. Pass on this.

330ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear pale gold with a thick one finger white head. Impressive head retention and lacing. I am quite astonished, actually.

Wonderful aroma of bread and grassy hops that is just perfect for the style. Some faint lemon and hay as well. Quite nice.

The flavor follows along the lines of the aroma with an awesom bread and grass character that strikes a nearly perfect balance between malt and hops. Some lemon and orange juice comes through about halfway along with a light, clean bitterness. Fairly full mouthfeel along with a slightly sticky finish.

Overall, a really great beer and one of the better Europ pale lagers I have had. The flavors are so clean and crisp and it is an extremely refreshing beer.

A: One finger head. Fades quickly. Light yellow in color.

S: I'm still trying to get a whiff of something. If this beer has a smell, I certainly haven't found it yet.

T: Hoppy, very carbonated. The carbonation overpowers the flavor. It goes down okay. Like drinking soda.

M: Over-carbonated. The carbonation lasts on your tongue.

O: Is this beer or Sierra Mist? This beer is not for me.
