I always thought of this as Heineken if I can't get Heineken. Which is to say I kinda like it. A little off flavor in there but has some special "Euro" stank to it too. Which I mean in a good way.

330 ml bottle into lager glass; bottled on 2/7/2017, best before 11/7/2017. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is good. Fairly clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a very solid pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Flavorful and not too watery for the ABV. Nice level of hop presence for the style. No skunk notes from the green bottle surprisingly. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Super beer to cool off with after yard work or a twelve plus hour day. Refreshing with no aftertaste. I personally like it better than most Northern European beers for the purpose stated. Thanks, I think I'll have another! Cheers!!!

Decanted from an 11.2 oz (330 ml) green bottle into a conical pint glass; best by 03/01/18.
A: Pours a crystal clear, yellow color with a very limited head, no retention, and no lacing. None.
S: Aromas of cracker, apple, and spice.
T: Flavors follow nose with pepperiness to the light bitterness. Clean, crisp finish.
M: Very light bodied, a bit disappointed by the modest carbonation.
O: Basically a nondescript, commercial beer. Went well with pizza when ice cold. Would not want to try it warmer than that and could not have differentiated it from an army of similar offerings, imported and domestic. Do not pay a premium for this one

Bought a 6-pack Wal-Mart $7.78
Light malt smell
Clear light golden color
Light mouthfeel
High carbonation
Light sweet malt taste, rather clean tasting
Overall just like a macrobrew. Refreshing on a hot day, but nothing about it would make you want this over any other macrobrew. Not worth the premium price
