Poker is probably the most decent offering bavaria has, and as such, they decided to tag along on the 'light' current probably in an effort to woe the female crowd.

Not a good effort.

Verly average lager in pour, visual and smell terms- gold translucent, medium head, very bland malty scent.

Flavour- wise it aint much different but what is rather remarkable is that they managed to pull a flavour half close to the original poker serving, an unexpected deal for the usual watering down of an otherwise weak, macro lager.

Not too shabby in all, but not something to go out of your way for.

2.03/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A: Super pale yellow with a small white head that vanishes. Quite a few big zippy bubbles. No lace.

S: Very faint & light. Soft bit of grainy malt, hint of diacetyl. Smells wet more than anything else.

T: All quite faint. Floral esters, light sweetness, hint of grainy malt, some herbal & grassy hops. Ghost hint of diacetyl. Not much going on really. Sort of wet and watery.

M: Light body, Carbonation is over-matched & expansive but not much aggressive. Pushes the fizz-o-meter a bit, but also is bright and crisp.

D: The "lite" version of an already rather light & low-gravity macro type lager. Les aroma, less flavor, less mouthfeel – but hey,it looks about the same. H2O with a spash o f color, a pinch of flavor, some carbonation & a little abv. Nothing is truly wrong, just it barely seems like beer.

Pale golden color with a good head with medium retention.
Predominant aroma of corn, some booze even at 3.1%, with notes of grassy hops.
Unpleasant corn flavor, mostly in the fast upcoming aftertaste coming to a dry state, but with undesirable taste of cardboard.
Very watery body with medium carbonation.
This reasonably new release from the Poker family will need to strive for survival. I wonder who buys it.
