Emptied the contents of a 33cl bottle into a clean pint glass.

Rich two inches of head of a beaten egg whites consistency slowly fell and left a single ring of drapery. Pale golden color to the beer with all sorts of carb in the form of jetting streams.

Wet white bread smell with a grassy hop blending in to mustiness. A little corn-y with some detectable veggie sweetness, but nothing off-putting. Nothing exceptional, either.

Oooh, there's some teethy metal to the first bite. The hops provide bitterness and not much more. Some grassy flavors in the midst with a hint of lime. More white bread graininess. Some Band-Aid/medicinal phenolics show up now and again.

A strange bitterness that's mouth-drying. Fizzy and unkempt. Thin and a bit watery.

No reason to go import when choosing an American Adjunct Lager, if you ask me. This one's no exception.
