Standard lager look and head.

Smell is pretty good actually, very hoppy and fresh.

Drinkable, better than some of the mass produced euro lagers, however it would be better with more hops. This was a can, I might try again from a bottle as from memory it is much better..

Update, it's better in a bottle.

Overall, very watery, not much flavor to comment on. However there is a subtle hoppiness that is well balanced with the sweetness, however very weak and almost un-noticable after 5 months of Belgian beers

2 ea 12oz cans found in the cooler after Champlain Valley Expo. Waste not, want not.

Poured both into a big ole glass stein, formed a dense 1/4" white head over the clear light golden brew. Head slowly dwindles, large bubble burst after large bubble burst, with leggy kind of fleeting lace. Aroma is pervasive, somewhat skunky seeming, although I know that's just the usual Heinie trait.

Taste is adjucty sweet upfront, creamy in the middle, and goes bitter and reminiscent of the nose through the close. Mouthfeel is quite smooth, and drinkability is not bad for what it is. Time and place, people, time and place.
