A german import with a yeasty, bread-like aftertaste and a tad skunky on the smell. Yet another beer that needs to be ice cold when imbibing. A standby if you don't have access to a more quality crafted, non-corporate (produced in mass quantities for export) brew.

Drank from a bottle. Tough to see in the bottle, but it appeared to be pale and clear. Minimal head. Minimal lacing on the top. Minimal film on the sides. Will give it the benefit of the doubt because it was tough to see and go with a 2.5 (5.0 for RateBeer).

Smelled of skunky malts up front. Grainy, earthy and corn malts as well.

Tasted similar to the nose. Skunky, earthy malts up front. I want to say cereal malts, too. Slightly bitter finish.

Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long bitter finish. Crisp, clean and refreshing.

Overall just a below average beer. Skunky rules the day.
