Light sweet malt taste
Overall just ok. Wouldn't buy again unless it was really cheap.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is dry grain and honey.
The taste is mildly bitter with a touch of honey.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
An easy drinking lager.

Looks inviting enough, typical clear pale lager. Smell and taste offer more of the same, though there is a definite apple/white grape quality that should definitely not be present at 4.6%. These are flavors I enjoy in a stronger beer, but under 5% not so much. Very effervescent bordering on over-carbonated; extremely gaseous.

I would guess that given the large amount of this beer produced, there's not much you could call "natural" in it. You have that chemically, syrupy quality usually only found in cheap ice beer and malt liquors. Definitely using heavy adjuncts and super-potent hop concentrates rather than the real thing.

Another thing: two sips in and I started sneezing, and began developing a sticky feeling at the back of the throat. This always happens when I drink something with artificial flavors and/or chemicals in it. Not pleasant at all.

Give it a pass unless on offer and you want something to drink while the good stuff is chilling (that's why I picked it up). And even then, there are better choices.
