Pours pale golden, small head, low retention.
Smells of grainy malts, a whif of caramel malts and low typical hops.
There's the expected chewy, sweet maltiness in the beginning, but a vegetable stew funkyness follows. Some funky herbs too, with a mild hop character in the end, a bit dry-metallic, but still refreshing from a certain crispness (lemon zest, not annoying).
Carbonation a bit low, almost flat. Dry metallic aftertaste lingers a bit too much.
Not the best example in its style, not even a great beer on its own. Had worse, still.

Found it in Romania.

A - Light orange, yellow color, low bubbles with almost no white foam.
S- Pale malt with usual lager aromas.
T/M - Medium bitter aftertaste, unpleasant taste. It is maybe young beer, but there is not even one specific taste in it,expect maybe some sweetness.

O - Expected much more from this one, but it was opposite.

330ml aluminum bottle:

Pours a light gold clear bright lager in the glass with a puffy white 2 finger cap.

Demure nose; light wisps of grains, herbal woodyness, sweetness.

Malty front, noble hopping slightly below the malts, thin mouth feel, finishes slightly dry with no after taste.

They advertise this as a "lifestyle" beer...I suppose that means for people who like muted Dortmunders in a swank bottle...seriously, this is a well made beer just muted... it tasted like a thin version of Stiegl.

This one is coming from a 12 oz Aluminum bottle decorated with a bunch of esoteric-poetical phrases such as 'earth glamour' and 'liquid music'. Expiration date: 05/30/2010...assuming a 1 year shelf life, this beer was only bottled three weeks ago.

Color is a fizzy yellow but more than moderate lace is left in the glass. Aroma is a bit straw like but clean and without any hints of adjuncts. Ingredients listed adhere to Reinheitsgebot. Flavor is a bit sour but otherwise unremarkable. Not much reason to buy another when faced with other options, but far from a drainpour.
