Light, pale straw colour with a thin, white head not more than a couple millimeters tall. This turns to a patchy lacing almost instantly.

Clean and with some very light grassy hops that are pretty faint. There is some corn and a vague background sweetness along with some grain and a pretty watery aroma that smells pretty cheap overall.

Sweet malts and grain make up most of the taste along with a chemical crispness and cheap malts. There is a very faint hop taste too but nothing much.

Clean and crisp with a lot of grain. The body is light and almost watery with a bit of bitterness in there too.

As expected this one wasn't a great beer at all, it was drinkable but only just really and not one that I enjoyed at all. A very basic and cheap lager, probably not the worst out there but nowhere near acceptable either.

Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some plastic-like aromas. Taste is much the same with a weird plastic-like, chemical flavor on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer with aromas and flavors that make it hard to drink.
