This beer has a crisp clean taste with no after taste. It is light and easy to drink. I purchased at Trader Joe's for $8.99 a six pack of Pint sized cans. I am not a fan of high IBUs. It does not have an overwhelming flavor but it is a good beer for the money.

Can:

Pours golden with a white fluffy head that dissipates to a ring. Little to no real lacing.

The smell is of some light bread. Clean.

The taste is of light bread. Enough hops to balance malt sweetness without adding much character. Rather abrupt finish.

More creamy than crisp, it could use a bit more bubble to fit the style.

Nothing much here. Inoffensive...more like a clean EPL than a true pils. A mediocre brew.

Definitely a European Lager and not a US Pils macrobrew.

A = poured in a pint glass, has nice yellow gold clear appearance, pours with a nice fluffy white head that quickly dissipates to decent lacing and rimming for a little while.

S = nice active nose going on here, roasted malts and some bread, light sweetness and some enjoyable Noble hops notes.

T = much like the scent, it reminds me of something like a Sapporo but not a Pauler, for instance. Clean, with nice malts, slightly sweet yet slightly hops-bitterness. Fairly well balanced, I'm surprised it doesn't get higher scores.

F = satisfying, going well now with some pizza. Would be fairly versatile in the pairings. The finish now seems to have hints of ginger ale but it's still tasting good overall.

O = overall this is a great deal from Trader Joe's, and given to me by one of their regular shoppers.

A solid Euro-style lager. Nice color and easy to drink. Maybe could be more flavorful but nothing off-putting.

16.9 oz can into a pub glass. Tastes like a subpar pilsner. Kind of metallic. There's a lot better out there. Decent looking beer though.
