Clear with a slightly darker than usual amber colour and a thumb sized, bubbly white head that stays quite well on the top of the beer, even managing to leave some lacing on the glass too.

Earthy lager hops and malts to begin with, quickly followed by some adjuncts and a touch of corn. I also detected some bread in there.

Malty lager taste to start with along with some light grain and a touch of lager like grassy hops. The beer tasted quite light on flavour but sadly it was also quite skunky too.

Thin, smooth on the palate with a strong amount of carbonation and a bitter, malty finish that is somewhat muted on the palate although not in a flat tasting way.

Not a great lager in my book, despite what the 'premium' on the bottle suggested. It was darker in flavour than I had expected, especially considering it is a pale lager but better than the standard Pan Lager at least.

500ml can - stupid fucking import agent slapping a label over the pertinent origin and ingredient info on the can. Greasy.

This beer pours a clear, medium copper amber colour, with four fingers of puffy, rocky, and chunky dirty white head, which leaves some densely splattered lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of soured grain, creamed corn, nail polish, and some musty, weedy, and dead floral green hop bitters. The taste is stale bread, corn-forward wet cereal, an untethered yeastiness, and more thankfully understated musty, floral, and dried-hay hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its palate-placating frothiness, the body a so-so middleweight, and sort of smooth, I suppose, but not in a way that you might wish to write home about. It finishes trending dry, in a musty and grainy Euro-trash sort of manner.

Overall - if it wasn't already patently clear, I have rarely been as bored with a beer as I am with this one. Writing about the 'attributes' usually comes easily to me, but I find myself at a loss here. I guess all I can say is: it's not really all that bad, but in no way, shape, or form, is it good.
