From 12 oz. can to a tulip glass.
Clear gold in color.
Smells of corn and malt, grainy.
Tastes great. Grainy, corny, yeasty. Faint sweetness.
Great carbonation. Crispy, dry. Smooth.
Love this beer. Will be in my fridge.

Poured from a can. Pours a light golden yellow with a white head. Smell leans towards apple juice. Taste is juicy and somewhat sweet, with a hint of bitterness. Finish is crisp and dry. Body is more full than most lagers. Overall a solid and flavorful lager. Easy drinking, but not dull.

Huge, huge frothy head, with a rocky, towering crown. Slightly dark honey color. Perfumey aroma, a touch musty. Light, sweet malt smells. Taste features a nice variety of fruit, followed by a smooth, grainy malt aftertaste. Touch of mineral water. Hops are quite minimal, adding a flash of fruit and just a hint of bitterness.

Light, subdued flavors. Kind of thin, but I guess that's the style.

This is what a "regular" beer should taste like. It's simple and relatively light, but unlike typical American fuzzy yellow water, it's got body and heft. My favorite lager.
