Served in a pint glass
Clear pale gold with a finger thick tight bubbled and bright white head that quickly settles. Definitive adjunct smell with little in the way of hops or malt. The taste too is pretty typical of an adjunct lager. There isnt much there but it is pretty crisp and relatively clean with only a bit of a skunky, vegetable like flavor. There is a bit of hop bitterness in the finish and the carbonation is medium to high. Along with the bitterness at the end there is a touch of sweetness. Overall it's a bit better than average for the style in that it is a bit more well rounded than the typical adjunct lager and it seems to offer a bit more to the senses.
