Pours gold with a small head.
Nose shows sweet malty bready notes, sweet corn, soft spicy hops and honey. Exceedingly sweet smelling.
Sweet flavours too. Lots of unfermented malt, very sweet. Some spicy hops and a mild bitterness. Gets cloying quickly. Literally tastes like unfermented wort.
Very watery body.

Appearance was pale pils like with a mountainous head.
Smelt of pils malts, maybe a little hops.
Taste is kind of sweet and kind of pils-ish, fairly good considering the lack of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is satisfactory, not amazing, but good enough.
Overall a cut above alot of alcoholic lagers.

Pours a very pale straw colour. forms a nice 1 inch head which retains exceptionally well and leaves an reasonable lacing. The head retention and glass lacing was thick and very fluffy, almost to the point of being to fluffy and a little congestive, which turned out leaving an inconsistent layer of head.

The beer smells quite fruity and sweet. Sweet malts are present, not much bitterness to speak of.

The flavor of this beer was not bad at all. It had a little bit of range and character; while I wasn’t expecting it to be strong it still wasn’t too bad. Mouhtfeel is pretty clean and well carbonated. The overall taster however is really sweet and displays little to no bitterness at all, this beer is very finely hopped. The beer is very sweet and zesty, all over the palate with tiny hints of bitterness at the back but never coming through to overpower the sweet malts. The aftertaste brings forth more sweetness and a little more bitter hops but nothing huge.

Overall a decent try. It does state on the can it is finely hopped. Taking into account what they are trying to do and considering the market it’s not a horrible attempt. Just a little too sweet for my taste.
