From Hipecor. 50cl can. In Ikea's pint glass. Reading CSHTP6 Ch7. Much more balanced than other adjunt lagers, with the corn little noticeable. Very drinkable and smooth. Good body for its low ABV.

Added again after vanishing from Beer advocate...

Bright golden color with a thick head that would not go away (even 30 minutes later) and leaving laces, to make any true Pilsner envy.
Very light aroma of bready malt and very distant floral hops.
Sweet flavor of pale malt and corn with floral and herbal hops. A little cardboard on the finish.
Light body with good carbonation.
An adjunct lager a bit over average.
