Pours a very pale straw color with just about no head (I even poured straight into the glass, no effect). Smells sweet and faintly fruity, like plums. The taste is very clean, no real sweetness or bitterness, sort of a chemical finish, not good. Mouthfeel is very watery. Not much else to say about it, really. The smell led me to believe there would be something, but there's nothing there. Overall, it's alcoholic water.

Bottle: a stubby brown 330mL bottle with a pretty ordinary macro label. Cheap package, but it is a cheap beer, so hey.

Appearance: light yellow in colour with big carbonation. A measly head froths up and sissipates almost immediately. Not a good start.

Aroma: sweet grains dominate what little aroma there is, with a touch of fruits behind. An alcoholic fug rises up also.

Taste: follows the nose quite closely, but comes across a bit watered down. Not much happening really.

Aftertaste: again very little going on. Dissipates quickly.

Mouth feel: very watery with a high level of carbonation. The carbonation alters the flavour, and not in a great way.

Overall: a cheap lager which tastes cheap and looks cheap. I'd rather spend an extra couple of bucks and get something better. Not a great beer. Have something better unless you don't have a choice. It isn't unpleasant, just really cheap-tasting.
