355ml can poured in a mug.

Clear, pale straw yellow in colour. Head is white and foamy but reduces to a thin skim across the top. Some bits of lacing cling here and there.

Aroma is mild and faint. What little there is could be called sweet.

There really isn't alot of taste to this beer. It's very mild and almost like drinking carbonated water except for the brief sweetness at the swallow. The aftertaste however is something different, reminds me of licking envelopes. Envelope glue isn't particularly an attractive flavour for a beer.

Mouthfeel is more like a light macro than a macro lager. Thin, watery and fizzy.

This beer really isn't drinkable. It's two steps up from "reverse drinking" and one step up from a drain pour. Bonus points for the lacing. The can says "Made from water and the finest 100% natural barley malt, hops and yeast." This might qualify it as an all-malt lager, but everything else about this beer screams macro lager. In fact, there are many macro lagers that I would drink ahead of this one.
