look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium gold body with a nice white head. Thin lacing down the glass.

Aroma: Quite strong malt and sweet grains for a pale lager, and a definite hop presence makes for an unexpected surprise.

Taste: Again, quite malty for the style, with a light fruitiness and honey aspects. Medium-low bitterness in the aftertaste. This one is a bit better than the usual offerings (such as Peroni etc), for one that likes beers that lean towards the malt side.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and medium body. Fairly average.

Drinkability: A good example of a macro lager that can be made pleasant. It was better than I was expecting, and perfect for pairing with the wonderful pizza that I had alongside. It won't set your tastebuds alight, but I would much prefer this than the majority of macro lagers on the market.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

A: pours a clear golden color with a decent head that fades to bites of lacing.

S: Mild aroma of a fruity sweetness with a bit of malt sweetness mixed in.

T: Taste of mild fruit and malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish.

F: Light body, crisp and smooth but a bit short on flavoer.

O: Typical non-offensive Euro Pale Lager.

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Clear golden color with a fingers worth of fizzy white head. The head disappeared quickly and there is almost no lacing.

Smell- Light aroma of sweet malt, corn and bread.

Taste- Pale malt flavor with hints of honey and lemon.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied and crisp. An average amount of carbonation.

Overall- Not a very good beer, reminds me more of a typical adjunct lager. If you pass this one up, you won't be missing anything.
