2.8/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a pint can into a pint glass.

A-Golden yellow lager, bubbly and carbonated; a nice white creamy 1/2 inch white head that shrunk to a creamy white surface along the top of the beer, which stuck around the whole time I nursed the beer. A lot of sticky lace left on the glass.

S-Pretty standard for a lager; light, crisp, grainy, clean smelling sweet malt. Almost adjunct-esque but not too much.

T-Initially going in was light, wet, and fresh. As I began swishing the beer on my palate I began to sense a strong metallic/irony flavor. I am not sure if it was suppose to be that way. The enjoy by date says 3/2014. The aftertaste left the metallic flavor in the back of my throat, along with some sweet malt, light spice from the hops, and perhaps some grains. As the beer warmed, the metallic taste dissipated a little...however, it never completely went away. I tasted a little spice, which would have been nice if the irony taste wasn't there. Also as the beer warmed the aftertaste was a little dry and perhaps a hint of clove spice. Disappointed overall with the taste.

M-light, carbonated, and refreshing; nice body. Tasted like a better lager with more flavor.

Overall, if the metallic/irony taste wasn't there I would have rated this beer higher. Too bad.

2.53/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 300 ml bottle.
Pours a golden yellow colour, with minimal bubbles floating and a 2 finger white, soapy head that becomes just a line of foam on the surface of the beer a whil later.
It has a strong smell of malts and hops.
Taste is typical for a lager, but there are some traces of corn too, thankfully not very noticeable.
On the palate is medium carbonated and thin.
Not bad for your average lager, just one more beer out there.
