Pilsner appearance, light carbonation. The smell is more complex than other cheap beers that I've had. This one has a cereal nose with a hint of, you never would have guessed it, orange. The taste is nothing special, just crispness in a can, and you can certainly drink many of these guys. I'd say this is a great summer beer. Overall, I'm impressed for the price. This shows that the Europeans make great cheap beer where America makes shitty cheap beer. Go craft in America, go cheap in Europe. That's my slogan.

Pale golden color with two fingers head with medium retention.
Aroma of grassy hops.
Similarly, flavor of grassy hops and malt sweetness.
Aftertaste a bit watery and I felt some oxidation, though not annoying.
Light Pilsner with a refreshing sensation, for a hot day.

Small white head settles into a thinnish lacing above a clear bright golden colored beer.

Light sour citrus lemon with some wheat grains and maybe some slight spices showing up in the aroma.

Light grain malts, some sourness, very light lemon, and some very light spice notes in the taste of this lager.

A dry aftertaste with a very slight sour note on this light bodied beer.

Not a bad tasting beer, just not enough taste within the thin walls of this glass of beer.

Another budget grab from Trader Joes. Poured into 16oz nonic. Poured a very nice golden-straw color with over an inch of fluffy white head that had good retention and OK lacing.

The aroma was on the good side of typical for the style, nice grains and gentle hops. There was just a bit of sweetness in the nose. The flavors were pretty much the same, the sweetness wasn't as apparent and the grains and hops balanced each other very nicely.

The body was good, smooth, even, clean and well balanced. Drinkability was very good, the beer went down quickly and easily after a 2+ hour bike ride. Overall, an above average example of the style. Worth grabbing a can if you see it and are in the mood for light, smooth, easy drinking beer.

A: The beer is crystal clear deep yellow in color and has a very light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down and left patches of bubbles on the surface and a thin ring around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of grainy malts and sweetness in the nose.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell, having flavors of grainy malts along with a slight amount of sweetness. There are also some hints of grassy hops.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but doesn’t have any interesting aromas or flavors.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall fluffy white head that quickly reduces to an extremely thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aroma of grainy adjunct malts with some sweetness. There is a very faint hint of grassy hops but not much.

T: Upfront this beer is all moderate flavors of grainy adjunct malts with just a hint of sweetness. After that there is a light flavor of grassy hops which contribute some light amounts of bitterness which lingers through the finish.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: This beer is not bad but it not anything special either - easy to drink and sessionable but not sure that I would really want to have more than one of these at a time. I wish this had a little more hop presence (not a ton but just a hint more).
