Pours a pale, golden yellow with a half of an inch of loose, bubbly, soap-like head that fades quickly. There are a ton of noticeable carbonation bubbles that rise to the surface. The nose is very faint and grainy. The flavor is also quite light but with a decent malt character that is grainy and slightly sweet. There are some very faint grassy notes in the finish. The mouthfeel is very light and crisp.

This is yet another lightly flavored, lager. It's drinkable and refreshing, but overall it's forgettable.

Nose is heavy on the grains - straw, wet hay, reminds me of my days working at a garden center. Pours like my piss after a week in the bush, plus a finger of a fizzy white cap. Ends up looking like a decent lager though to be honest. It’s got that metallic brown / corn presence that you’ll find in new castle, stella and the like. I have no idea what this comes from but it’s there across the board. Not off-putting really. Perfectly drinkable. I would never seek this out though. Overall, fine, yeah, it is what it is.
