From notes. I can't really say what I was expecting...just that I wasn't surprised.

The look is surprisingly...average. A pale yellowish color with a deeper gold hue, this brew develops a small but reasonably sticky white head. It doesn't drop as quickly as I might expect, though it doesn't exactly stick around for the party. It does manage to leave enough spotty lacing for me to decide I really am drinking a beer.
Well...I can't smell or drink this without wondering if it's a macro in disguise, though even some of those are simply brewed lamely for the mass "swigger's" palate but with more skill. This one is too vegetal, with too much of that grainy/fruity thing going on. Cereal grains are strongest, and the only relief comes when at least something by way of some crackery/fruity pale malts and light dusty/floral bitterness manage to find their way out. That said, I suppose it becomes somewhat tolerable once that happens, but it's all that does happen. A bit of sulfur comes through underneath as well.
I expect a light body, and for the style it fits. There's nothing really going on, though. While fairly bland, it's not completely inactive, as there's a nip of crispness on the front and it manages some smoothness.

Appearance has a nice amber color supporting a thin dissipating head leaving spotty lace. Smell of lightly sweet malt and maybe slight adjuncts. Taste of the sweet malt rounded with a mellowing of hops. Mouthfeel has a light body with good carbonation. A little on the sweet side for me, but not bad.

A - Poured out a golden amber color with a one-finger, white head of crackly head. It was very short-lived and left no lacing.

S - It smelled floral with some grains.

T - It tasted malty sweet with earthy, grassy hop bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied lager.

O - This is an okay lager. Not worth stocking up on.
