3.3/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 11.2 oz white, red and copper can. Freshness date on the bottom of the can. 11.2 oz? What’s up with that? If you are going to export a canned beer to the US it should be 12,16, or 24oz cans … don’t gyp us on .8 oz, Geezz!

Appearance: Thin cropped white lace, barely holds together though with each sip it rolls back again to a thick lace. Clarity is fine and is of the ultra cold filtered kind.

Smell: Faint rubbing of herbal hop and a fullness of grain in the aroma. Quite clean at that.

Taste: Clean palate within a light to moderate body, the hop flavour gets restless and throws around some leafy and herbal flavours as it drops a clean bite of bitterness. Maltiness is light and actually thin in a way with only a graininess that recedes to a husky flavour towards the end. A ghost like buttery flavour, faint metallic / earthiness and some very light warming alcohol wrap up the finish.

Notes: A decent Euro lager at best, Stella Artois is a half notch better but I’d rather have a Bavik for the sake of smaller breweries. Though at $5.99 a six pack of 11.2 oz cans it is a bit pricey for what you get.
