on draft it is a good option for a low abv middlin flavor brew to go with food that is a step up from bud/miller lite. you know.. a go to, when you don't want too much flavor in your beer :). i didn't get any off character or skunkiness. mild flavor & enough liquid to complement a nosh

Straw color, small white head. Smell is sweet. Some adjuncts. taste is grain, corn, sweet malts. Very light hops. Has some pilsner qualities. Mouthfeel is light and finishes a little dry. Not too bad. And at $3.99 for 4 sixteen ounce cans, it's a bargain. This is an average Euro lager. Not difficult to drink. Just lacking a bit on taste.

Very refreshing...had this on draft in Bruges, Belgium. Crisp, malt taste, bready, metallic, very light, hence the comments fellow about being skunky. For sessions involving high beer consumption, this is on point.

Poured from 16oz can (4 for $5...can't beat that deal...NEIPAs go for 1 can per $4-$5) Nice big billow 3 finger head and lots of carbonation. Smell isn't much to be desired. Very AAL like. Taste? Well its got alot of flavor for 5% beer. Not quite sure the flavors are that good though. Bready, but not quite dialed in at all, off flavors are present and can't pinpoint what they are. Slight metallic bitter finish and a long lingering "something" that isn't quite enjoyable. Wish I could identify a little better. Really doubtful I finish this full 16oz beer. Just not enjoying it enough. Now what do I do with the other 3 beers?

Nice Euro style lager. I first tried this when I was about 21, and is was a top-shelf staple around here. I can now only find it at Total Wine. Years of drinking mostly domestic cheap beers have changed my taste, however, and I now find it a little "too refined" for my palate.

This beer supports the stereotype of lagers bottled in green glass: it has a decidedly skunky aroma and a moderately skunky flavor. Light bodied with medium+ carbonation.

I found this to be rather rank and unappealing. Much better choices out there, even among the "classics".
