Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is malt, corn, grainy and a little hop. Flavour is malt, corn, grainy, medium sweet, little metallic, little thin and a little bitter.

Drank from 500ml can. Light and watery, no malt flavor, a little grass, and a little skunk (even though it came from a can).

What's not to like? Clean, crisp. Very decent beer.

Fairly decent euro lager. Cheap. Good retention, nice mouthfeel. I will probably drink a bunch of these this summer.

I don't really get the hate for this one. It definitely doesn't have a lot going on, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's kind of a low-risk, high-reward situation--for $0.07 an ounce, I don't know that you can find a cleaner-tasting beer. It's very smooth and has none of the skunky Euro character of its Dutch brethren. It could definitely use more hops, but it has enough for a crisp finish. It's become my go-to easy drinker.

From the 16 oz can.,with the following code stamped on the bottom: 14.10.13.23.36-E14-01.15 FL. Sampled on March 29, 2015.

Pours into the pilsener glass yellow with a big white head and busy carbonation.

The aroma is pretty bland and straight forward with toasted biscuit, toasted bread. toasted malts (get the trend?) and clean grassy hops underneath it all.

The body is light to medium but also rather smooth. That's worth something.

The taste is a pretty straight forward corny, grainy, ale malt character with a clean hop finish. But it did not enthrall me all that much. Nothing unique or individual. I'll have some burgers with this. That much I can defend.

Not that great. Feels like a cheaper Peroni knock off.

Poor lager beer without aroma!
