A: Color is clear golden. The tall tan head is soapy and uneven. Decent lacings.

S: Grainy malt, but also corn. Sweet. Faint bitterness.

T: Light taste and lots of corn in the sweet malt.

M: Long sour bitter aftertaste. Body is light and carbonation quite offensive.

O: I wonder why I bought this crap. Boring!

The colour is gold (7 EBC), the liquid clear. The three finger head is off-white and compact. Quite good retention. It leaves some lacing on the glass.

The smell is somewhat sour / doughy. Sweet malts, some distinct bitter flavours. Hints of alcohol and mint. Industrial.

The taste is clean and quite light. Some refreshing lemon sourness. Sweet clean notes in the background. Light body. The aftertaste got some grainy notes and a light bitterness. Lemon/lime and dough in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong; the medium sized bubbles are smooth. The liquid is light.

A quite uninteresting pale lager.
