Clear yellowish liquid in a green bottle. Aroma of corn, rice, husk and a bit of skunky hops. The flavor has crisp adjunct flavor and a small mineral and skunky hop presence. Light bodied, carbonated well. Subpar beer.

Bright pale straw color with dense pearly activity. Foamy and slightly frothy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with decent lacing. Flavors of sweet grains, soft corn and barley, lemon, syrup, caramel, and floral spices. Biscuity feel, a bit bready, with lots of sugars and low sharpness. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Light finish of soft salivating sugary malts, mildly syrupy, with lingering soft leafy and grassy hops. No adjunct feel. Good drinkability for a light, while overly accessible. Well refreshing but slightly metallic. Impressive one from Moosehead. Overall below average quality.

Pours the color if ginger ale. Pretty much a watered-down version of the standard Moosehead lager. The skunkiness in the lager is lessened but so is the general flavor.

From Club del Gourmet of El Corte Ingles. In Ikea's pilsner glass. Watchig Worst Week 1x05. Another industrial lager, and worst than the typical one

nothing more than Moosehead with water added to it, bland and very little taste, they are always giving a free promos with this fare, in effort to get consumers to bite.
