Realize I am comparing this brew to other supposed "pale lagers" in the US domestic category.

US macros use adjuncts like RICE....

AFAIK Heineiken does NOT!

Macro for sure, but at least it is a REAL BEER! even given the green bottle!

Say what you want.... skunky, or whatever... stilll a better pale lager than the US macros that use ADJUNCTS!!!!

Even via keg, or bottle.... this is a better beer than the US macros....

It is crisp when properly cooled, and refreshing as expected. Good "lawn mowing beer"!
