A- Very pale gold, big white head that fades fast and leaves patchy lacing.

S- Biscuity malt with some skunk. Slight grassy hop aromas as well.

T- Bready malt opens up the palate and leads into citrus and a slightly bitter finish.

M- light/medium bodied with lots of tingly carbonation. Finish feels a little dry.

O- Not bad for what it is.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance:
lagery. basic apple juice yellow tone. thin dissapearing head. some odd small lace tho.

smell:
smells like it looks, it has a sweet note something like the apple juice is appears similar to. grains and hops present in there. slightly sweet an bitter smelling.

taste:
medium carb levels out to a lagery bitter, some sweet fruit hints in there mildly,
pretty short flovoured, ends up with nice dry feeling left behind, really refreshing,
grain is dominant in the after taste, over all a nice taste.

mouth:
sharp to start, not a heavy carb but a good level. I find it reminds me alot of
carlberg lager, not so much on the grassy notes , but similar, I find carlsberg almost like drinking a pint of the football pitch. this euro lager has simialr qualities, but
in a more hopped way. with a better overall balance.

overall:
this beer had been something I had tried a long time ago, from a flip top,
which was room temperature, and light struck. so naturally my first impressions
were not great, and I avoided buying it in choice for others. After some discussion the other night with a friend who drinks it regularly, I grabbed a can of it, and much to
my surprise, the lager I had hated, turns out to be very good when given the proper
treatment , (being poured properly, and chilled at least slightly) ...I will be adding this to my regulars I think, as the taste is considerably better than I had remembered.
a good clean euro pale.

First off, got it in the flip-top at Trader Joe's. Score. Saving for bottling the next batch.
Second, served it in a pint glass.
A- Light, golden orange. One finger head that dissipated quickly but left a thin film as it was agitated.

S- Sweet malt, light grass, light citrus.

T- Grassy, sweet malt.

M- Light bodied, definite cripsness, a little dry.

O- Basically a Heineken. Maybe a bit more bitter after-taste. Not my favorite but glad for the flip top regardless.
