Best before date of 2/18/2015. 330ml bottle.

A: Pours a clear light straw/pale yellow with 1-finger thick white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves semi-rings and splotches of lace.

N: Yeasty, bready, slight lemon citrus, grainy/corn, grassy, faintly herbal esters.

T: Yeasty with a crisp citrus lemon along with a trace of metallic aftertaste.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Clean and light, yeasty grainy finish.

O: Can imagine tropical beaches surrounded by a lagoon with swaying palm trees.

Pours a typical clear, golden color and a small and quickly disappearing head.
Aroma is a pleasant, clean hops.
The taste is surprisingly bitter, but sadly it comes with that unpleasant metallic feel in the aftertaste.
Drinkable and all, but sadly the aftertaste spoils the entire picture.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours clear golden with lots of medium to large bubbles. The tall white head is kind of thick and compact, dissipates slowly into rich lacings.

S: Some mild corn and bready malt, very sweet. Bitter hops and citric notes in the back.

T: Bitter hops, better than many Adjuncts lagers. Mostly malt, but corn as well. Sweet and citric.

M: Aftertaste is very long and bitter. Body is medium to full for this style while the carbonation is strong but un-aggresive.

O: Well-crafted (?) Adjunct Lager.

A finger and half of head on a clear, golden colored body.
The aroma is grain, mostly rice.
The taste has mild bitterness and moderate sweetness. One then the other on the profile.
The texture is a little sticky with moderate carbonation and light body.
The sweetness was a bit much and with the sticky texture makes this a "no-go".
