2.17/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

Poured from a 500ml can into a .5l glass.

Pours a golden yellow color with carbonation coming up from the bottom of the glass. White fluffy head recedes to a soapy film. Aromas are light grassy notes, a touch of corn sweetness maybe, some sourdough bread notes, not bad. The taste is thin and forgettable. I could mistake this for a bud light but this actually has less taste. Really disappointing and not even a good summer beer. I would rather drink a glass a water and save the calories. mouthfeel is thin and watery also. Overall this is probably ok to boil a hotdog in. The only thing memorable about this beer is that I will remember not to drink it again.

(From notes)

This is actually a different brew than just regular 'Cardinal', and I can say that it is actually a worse brew, even.

A - Poured with the thinnest of white heads that disappeared before I barely had a chance to register that it was there; clear light yellowy gold color

S - Light maltiness; no real vegetal notes show up; but very straw-like and a touch sweet

T - Hoppiness never really shows up; bit of metallic twang; some light malts; nothing really going on here and fairly bland

M - Thinner and almost watery; was hoping for a bit more body overall in this

D - Not good; just no real decent flavors and the metallic nature drove this down big time.

Not one of the better macro brews that I've found in Switzerland.
