Easily the best Lager I've had (excluding craft). Poured from a can into a small pilsner glass.
L - Light Golden, few bubbles just a light column bubbling to the surface. Head dissipated quickly.
S - Not much to excite the nose as with most lagers. Smells lightly hoppy with slight sourdough starter smell to me (I'm a Baker)
T - Delightful, clean, refreshing, slightly bitter. Doesn't leave a strong taste in the mouth or a sour taste in the throat. Balanced and doesn't taste as strong as the ABV.
F - Light carbonation, doesn't leave one feeling bloated or full.
O - Best Lager I've tried as far as my memory goes.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours pale golden color with a big billowy white head. The head has a good level of retention, fading over time to leave a moderate sum of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a sweet and bready smell with the sweet being mainly a mix of a caramel and corn aroma. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of yeast and grass.

Taste – The taste begins with a rather light bready taste mixed with a moderate sum of a corn syrupy sweet flavor. As the taste advances, more and more corn flavors come to the tongue with a little bit of a grassy and papery flavor working their way in as well. These flavors take the taste to its end where they leave a somewhat unpleasant mix of flavors to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the somewhat off flavors this is probably the best feel for the brew as it minimizes that flavors the best it can.

Overall- Not the greatest beer out there that is for sure. Pretty much a subpar malt in my opinion, with much better malts out there. I wouldn’t recommend this one.

Really good Euro lager. I like the dry finish its really refreshing. Touch of hops, barley malts, and corn are present. I get Skunk kind of like Moosehead. Cheers!

It's OK! I'm a beer rating genius aren't I? Seriously though it's a decent but not exceptional euro lager. I could still drink this one any day/ anytime.

500ml bottle. BB 29-04-15. Pours a very pale gold colour with a dense white head which disappeared quickly and left minimal lacing. Metallic aroma with some corn and malt. Slight malty sweetness with mild, spicy hop bitterness. Some alcoholic warmth and the finish is quite dry but has an almost salty, mineral quality to it.

Great European Lager! Almost perfectly balanced. Nice and hoppy. Very crisp and refreshing I would definitely get this again!
