2.9/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Served cold from 500ml bottle into pilsner mug.

A) Medium to light amber, a lot of bubbles, thin white film.

S) Warm caramalised malt and light hops, quite nice for a cheaper lager.

T) Ouch, the metallic taste is right there in the front, then hop bitterness. No balancing malt anywhere.

M) Cold and refreshing, weirdly it would be improved by making it more fizzy.

O) Disappointing; not recommended.

Light amber, clear, zero head after a couple of minutes.
Smells doughy, hint of vanilla ice cream. Reminds me of cremola foam.
Tastes sweetish, not much hop character. Subdued indistinct bitterness.
Mouthfeel slightly creamy.
Overall it's a bit like a soft drink with some generic hop bitterness.

Okay
everything aside it looks good golden body with big foamy white head that actually retains

There isn't much in the way of aroma sour bread dough and baking soda

Is it called steam because that is the overriding taste
the majority of flavour is a pewter/metallic note tiny amount of malt
like a cheap UK macro fake lager **cough**Carling**cough**

Dull
incredibly dull
