Decent enough to not want to turn down but I won't be buying again.

This is a golden Helles lager with a very minimal, quickly disappearing white head and an abundance of carbonation. This lager is made by adding lemonade and the scent supports this. The taste is sour and lemony with a slight beer taste in the background. This definitely tastes more like lemonade than a beer. I will say that it is a crisp and refreshing as the bottle promises, however, if you are looking to taste a beer this is not for you since it is hardly recognizable as one.

Pour a clear honey with 1/2 finger head that receeds quickly. Smells sweet, lemon, and a touch malt. Tastes immediately sweet, lemon, and malty. Finishes dry and bready with lingering sweetness. A very light drink that's suited for the beach or sipping as you mow the lawn on a warm day. Would rarely see me buy something like this, but would except it willingly over an adjunct lager from a cooler at the beach.
