A : This lager pours a frothy head of about 3 fingers and recedes slowly to a thick ring, leaving webs of lace on the sides of the pint glass. The body is pale straw in appearance, but manages to muster a 20% opacity. An exceptional appearance for a typical adjunct lager.

S : Straw, grass, pale hops. Some cream of wheat, baked grains, and faint dark bread crust. An okay nose, has some character but nothing fabulous.

T : Heavy malt bill here, with a large corn/straw presence and flavors of baked bread (day old), biscuit, and wheat cracker. A faint hoppy stab peeks through here and there, with a tint of grapefruit. A large yeasty ending with a bit of tin as well. The main difference here is that it's closer to a Czech pilsner but without the harshness of hops.

F : It's light bodied as an adjunct lager should be, but it's also mildly creamy with appropriate carbonation and a slight dry nip on the finish.

O : I'd drink this again, given that I can get it for a fair price. It's better than Stella, and it's better than about any macro out there (save for a Coors on a hot day) and incorporates elements of the American and Czech styles in the entire profile.

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.
