pours a slightly darker golden color for a lager nice two finger white head that hangs around for awhile with a light sheeting of lace down the glaas. smells of malt grains with some spice and hops. slightly sweet malt and grain husk balanced with a clean hop taste. medium body with a smooth crisp carbonation. good any time you need a cold beer.

Got a pint at McKibbin's Irish Pub.

It's nice and non-descript in the best way possible--not all beer needs to necessarily project itself and make you wince to appreciate its complexity. Not much of an aroma, sweet yeastiness, no skunk, not too bitter. Very pretty, pinkish yellowish color. Very little head. Hydrating. When I finished it I wanted another one, so I think it's a success. Goes very well with sweet foods like cheesecake.

very interesting beer. It’s not awful but it’s not super great. It just is quite plain and super drinkable. It’s the best Euro Pale Lager I’ve had. This beer is really hard to describe. It's just a very satisfying beer.

I'm biased on the whole irish thing, but I'll try to give a useful review. Got this in a world market beers of the world package.

Appearance - Poured a beautiful pale, straw color.

Smell - Smells of sweet barley and hops.

Taste - This is where it is. Slightly sweet, almost minty taste, not too overbalanced with alcohol and hops.

Mouthfeel - I find this beer highly carbonated. It reminds me of the same feel as a monster nitro energy drink. That being said, I enjoy that, so all in all thumbs up.

Drinkability - Could easily down a few on a hot summer day. Want to try on tap.

Worth your money, definitely a different beer.
