Demi (small) at the brewpub for 3.10 Euro's.

Crystal clear with white, one finger head. Guessing this is a lager by how crisp it is with slight sweetness. A very easy drinking, non-offensive beer. If I drank 1664, I would say this is a solid local alternative to the mass produced and marketed lagers.

A great head, dense and lasting. I couldn't really judge the smell as the place was, as often around here, quite smokey. The taste I found grassy and hoppy, slightly oily with a nice fruity profile. Also slightly grainy in a pilsner way. The finish was dry but thick and bitter. Interesting.

A dencent though slightly tasteless beer from Oneill.

Pours a very clear slightly gold toned headless liquid with slight to no carbonation within.

The smell hints some fruityness to it accompanied by some lager like feel that is weak and has not much to it.

The taste, I would consider refreshing but not amazing. Lemony and fruity above all but extremely weak and/or watery which makes the malty feel in the end be just an aftertaste rather than an actual taste.

Decent beer to try; certainly.

Drinks crisp and clean, with a nice blonde malt/floral hop one-two punch.
