Pint at Naja's place, yes I visit this place a couple times a week if anybody was wondering

Not much smell at all, poured a golden color with a thin white head

Tasted like most light beers with a little spicier bite, but nothing to get excited over

Taste went away almost immediately

Good drink a lot of these becauase they are so so light

From notes. The beer came a barely yellow color with a finger of head that fell to ring the top. The nose was weak, slightly grassey with a slight noble hop. The flavor was very grainey and grassey with a light sweetness and minimal hop. The feel was moderate with a nice active carbonation. Not bad at all. A fair example of a light lager, but not something I would get a half litre of.
