2.52/5  rDev n/a
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Can: a dodgy yellow can with dodgy yellow labelling.

Appearance: clear yellow with a minimal head that dissipates immediately. Not terribly pleasant, to be honest.

Aroma: an unpleasant off-metallic smell. Nothing more than expected though, from a standard light lager.

Taste: a little bit of grains and corn over the top of the nasty off-metal taste.

Aftertaste: as expected, dissipates immediately.

Mouth feel: standard lager fare - light-bodied, reasonably high carbonation.

Overall: to be honest, why not simply drink water? I'd rather that than drink this. Just do a proper D-D night instead of drinking lights so you can drive.
