Pours a bright, golden color, with a big, bubbly head.

Smells of slightly herbal hay, accompanied by a gentle leaf quality and sweeter oats.

A very light, refreshing lager, with a well dosed amount of carbonation.

Tastes of overly sugery malts, wrapping up the whole palate, while a rich note of wheat, topped by a whiff of lemon shine through.

Too sweet too be enjoyable, while it does provide a convincing freshness, due to the lively carbonation.

Pours clear, pale yellow in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is honey, grass, and light skunkiness. Not horrible, but I have had better. Probably would get other lagers before this one.

Really weak yellow, straw, fizzy appearance beer. Cooked metal can of green bean veggie and corn aroma.

Taste was somewhat refreshing, highly carbonated, corn and rice kind of mouthfeel sweetness delivery system. Would bang with spicy food.
