Times are tight at the moment, so I decided to pick up an "Old faithful" beer for a change. 1 pint, 8 fluid ounces with a code of "9345528D0913" in case you were wondering...

Poured chilled into my traditional pint glass aggressively. It yielded a large, 4 inch white head with lots of bubbles. Within 30 seconds, the head shrunk by half. The body of the beer is crystal clear and golden with trace bubbles coming from the base up to the top.

The nose is characteristically "skunk". I actually like this smell. With further sniffing, I get corn, light grains and a hit of light hops, like Saaz in the mix. After the head settled, I sniffer again and it smelled corny at times.

Once the beer hit my tongue, high carbonation and a brief spat of bitterness was evident. The primary flavor of this beer is light grains, delicate hops and creaminess. It's a dry and refreshingly crisp beer. Like the nose, the skunk quality trails in the aftertaste.

Being a macro German lager, I like it. I'd take this over any BMC beer any day of the week. Nice and easy drinker.
