The look is a nice golden colored beer with a thick, frothy and bubbly white head. Lots of streaming carbonation bubbles visible.
Smells of malts and that familiar skunk smell. Just a touch of the skunk in this one though. Also getting something like crackers. Something like a bit of mineral water smell as well.
Taste is just a touch of metallic flavor coming through otherwise a real nice pilsner balance of malts with some hops coming through towards the back. The carbonation is helping to push the flavors across the tongue.
Mouth feel is just a bit slick with a nice wet finish that helps to wet the old whistle.
Overall I really liked this pilsner. It has a lot of the European lager qualities that really help make this shine. I like that the skunk is not over powering and the flavor profile is pretty darn clean. This also drinks well from a cold 16 oz. can. And the crazy part is I can pick up a shrink wrapped pack of twelve tall cans for a $12 regular price!

L -- Very pale orange. Clear and fizzy, with a moderate bone white head. Surprising amount of lacing for a tallboy that wasn't particularly fresh.
S -- Mild wheat, corn, malts, and dough
T -- Grains, hops, soap(?), and a metallic aftertaste.
F -- Like a strong Heineken

Typical yellow beer with lots of clarity and carbonation. Aroma hit those Euro lager skunky notes, something I kind of have an affinity for.

Taste has pronounced alcohol relative to its abv and body. Minimal hopping, maximum carbonation, minimal barley. Too distracting of a burn to be a relaxing lawnmower summer kind of beer. Carlsberg just isn't that good no matter what beer they kick down, but at least this isn't as bad as their red.

Kind of like heineken, moosehead and Becks. Ok, but I prefer heineken.
