16 oz. can poured into a pint glass. Pour is a clear medium straw in color with a light white cap. Nice bubbling up of gas keeps a light cap throughout. Nose of pils malt with a bit more backbone/body. Light hop presence. Taste follows with a full bodied pilsener sense with some sweet malt notes and a bit of lemon on the finish. Malt character yields a fairly full body for a 5% brew and befitting of the style.

The most mass market and hence most industrial produced brew in the DAB catalogue. When judged against this metric, it’s actually pretty good!

Decent if uninspired pale euro lager. Eminently crushable. Price per can ratio is always inviting.

Can. From Hipercor. In Bavaria hefe glass. At dinner, with trufas burger. Malty, with plenty strong bitterness and some sweetness through. Maybe slight oxidation but fitting well for my liking. High drinkability

Tastes like a budweiser with just a bit more hops going on. A typical macrolager beer. Real thirsty on a hot day after some yard work. This one will be good for that.
