Very clear gold color with two fingers of white head made up of loose bubbles. Head crackles and fizzes down fairly quickly. Tons of visible carbonation.

Smell is a real clean water barley and malts, something like a beer, smell. Nothing really jumping out here. A faint hint of hops in the background. None of that Euro skunk smell, yeah!

The taste was very good while a bit plain. It tastes like a clean refreshing lager on the lighter side without any adjunct flavors.

Mouth feel is very light and crackles across the tounge with all of that carbonation. Finish is pretty crisp with a bit of wetness on the back side.

The Euro skunk did come out faintly as the beer was warming in my glass, but still not as bad as some reviewers state. I did get this in a 19.2 oz. can and believe this may have saved the beer from skunking out. Overall I feel this beer is worth a try from a can or tap. Taste seems to be cleaner than the adjunct lagers and also seems to be a bight lighter and dare I say brighter. Not a bad beer at all. Cheers!

On tap.

A - Pale yellow to straw yellow colored pour with thin dense white lacing.

S - Grainy aroma with some earthiness, a little grassy, and honey malt.

T - Grainy flavor with mild earthiness, honey, and finishes with some light earthy citrus.

M - Medium body with a little thinness, grainy feel that coats the mouth.

O - This beer has been around forever, can't believe this is the first time I'm reviewing it.

This is maybe one of the most boring beers I ever had. It even beats the mainstream lagers from Germany or the Netherlands when in comes to boringness. No distinct smell, taste or look. Pretty highly carbonated. That’s it. Waste of money and time.

If it were cheaper, this would be quite an astounding beer. But for something that positions itself with other quality imported beers, the taste really does not live up to the name. It's great for hanging out with friends unfocused on the beer, but if you're drinking to enjoy the beer itself there really is not much character here. The feel is nice, the look is decent, but the taste you get is pretty much that of beer and not much more. It's decent, but overrated for sure.

16oz can. Aroma is corny and malty - taste follows the aroma light, malty, crips and slightly bitter. Better than a Bud but nothing to "write home about" - an easy drinking summery lager for sure - probably best pared after a nice West Coast IPA.

Utterly distinct smell and taste to this classic light beer. Grassy, weedy, very interesting. This is, in my eyes, the easiest beer there has ever been to just pound down one after the other. What a godsend. Just an incredibly enjoyable experience.
