Picked this up in a single bottle at the local Kroger but had seen it several times at local Italian eateries

Pale almost clear appearance.

Smells almost like nothing very bland average smell.

Very plain taste as well very light on the mouth and very smooth and drinkable.

This beer is almost neutral nothing overpowering nothing special it is very drinkable and I would drink it again and it will probably be my beer of choice the next time I hit up the local pizza joint. Give it a shot.

I guess I expected a shitty lager when I found this in the House of 1,000 beers mixed six section. Pour is as clear yellow as it gets without being a light beer. Another note on appearance is the weird notch's in the back of the bottle. I guess that's for opening a beer with another beer. Screams classy.

Head was just a mere half inch and I was surprised to see it not fizz into nothing. Smell is your typical corn, musk, and hop mix. Taste is equally the same maybe some cardboard and moldy hops yet it taste as refreshing as filtered water. Makes my stomach rumble a tad. Mouthfeel is light and crisp.

Overall these Euro lagers are all the same. Light like spring water. Heavy on corn and sunk hops. Little revisit value.

Served on tap in a 20 oz. pilsner glass

Appearance-Served a straw colored brew with a one finger pure white head. The head faded almost instantly to give only a light amount of lacing.

Smell- The aroma is heaviest of some malt and a light caramel smell. There is a light musty smell as well. Nothing too great.

Taste - The taste starts out of a bready nature mixed with a light caramel sweetness. As the taste advances some light grassy flavors come to the tongue. In the end the grassy flavors grow stronger and mix with some paper tastes to leave a rather odd (and not in a good way) flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was below average to average in terms of its thickness with a carbonation level that is very average. About right for the style, but nothing special.

Overall –Ah…Nothing really too great. I would pass on this if I were you.
