look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

This beer pours a clear pale yellow color with a thin layer of bubbled bright white head. There is really no head retention to speak of and no lacing left behind.

the aroma is basic. Pale toasty grain, bread, and a light sweetness. Very similar to an adjunct lager.

The taste is boringly unpleasant. Not much here really. A touch of sweetness is available, some toasty grain as well. A very poor show.

The mouthfeel is thin, watery, and highly carbonated with a large bubble that provides a nice tingle on the finish.

Overall it's a lawnmower beer. Best straight from the bottle when you just want a no think beer. The flavor profile is so mild in nature it feels as though you're drinking a perrier at times.

A: Clear yellow with a one-finger head. Died fast but has a good amount of lacing.

S: Grainy malts and wheat. A tiny hint of honey.

T: Very wheaty with a tiny bit of sweet honey.

M: Decent amount of carbonation with a clean finish. A medium body thanks to the trace amount of honey flavor which seems to thicken the beer by a small amount. A little watery nonetheless.

O: Easy to drink, clean finish, one of the more fuller-bodied Kristalweizen's but was still a little too watery. Overall a good beer with common flaws, so compared to others, one of the better ones.
