Pretty average red lager. Obvious red amber color with big carbonation. Nice head though.
Smells toasty and sweet and a little malty. Pretty common amber smell. Taste is very unimposing and simple. Sweet and malty with just a bit of bitterness at the end. The toasted malt is the dominant character here. This beer is fine, but it does taste a little too mass produced. I'd drink it again, but never as a first choice.
