Poured from a 330ml bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short white head that fades very quickly and leaves very little lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, adjuncts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with an adjunct and light malt sweetness. Then some grain and malt breadiness follows. The hops presence is very mild, but at least there is some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, high carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Not very flavorful, goes down easily and not too filling since there isn’t much to the beer, mild kick, typical representation of style, it’s not completely bad but there are many other beers even in the style that I would choose first.

From a 11.15oz bottle into a pint glass.

A- Golden yellow color, one finger head that fizzles away quickly. Some particles floating around in the beer. No lacing.

S- Honey, bready, malty. No hops detected.

T- Honey, very malty, bread. Sweet. Lacks hops. Some tobacco taste. Has an awesome bready aftertaste.

M- Not much carbonation. Watery and light. Sort of crisp.

Drinkability- Very smooth and easy to drink.

O- Overall, this beer surprised me with how great it tastes, but needs more carbonation. I really enjoyed its honey/bready/tobacco taste.

Sad to think that the only redeeming quality of this beer is to "put out the fire" if you eat spicy food. A very plain Adjunct Lager that should be sold at PBR prices. I am disappointed by all aspects of this beer. Going out on a limb to try a new beer is not always rewarding.
