Appearance: Clear medium golden color, with a modest white head, slight carbonation, and thin, fine lacing.

Aroma: Mildly sweet malt, pleasant spicy herbal hop aroma, and a faint note of skunk.

Taste: Opens with mildly tart malt, and understated hops. Midway through the taste, some citric notes appear. Finishes with a mildly bitter metallic hop note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, pleasant, and fairly full.

Drinkability/notes: Well-crafted example of a nondescript style.

Thanks to Max for hand-carrying this beer from Germany.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Mild skunk nose from the brown bottle. Cracker malt base, hops are leafy and noble.

Appearance: Bright clear pale yellow glass that gives no head.

Flavor: Skunk, hops are full and spicy. Malt is substantial given the style.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, a bit of grain in the texture.

Overall Impression: Malt Liquor? Maybe the German version. Solid beer none the less.

Big thanks to Max for hand carrying this back from Europe!

A - pours a clear straw yellow with just a bit of bubbles

S - fresh grains and sweet malt

T - bready, yeasty & light sweet malts, slightly tart and a bit of citrus

M/D - very drinkable and good tasting, a very refreshing, clean & crisp brew that would be nice on a hot summer day

The aroma is a bit lemony, some pale malts, overall pretty light. Bright white head poured nice and thick, faded to a film eventually leaving a tiny bit of lace. Not much in the flavor department, maybe a little wheat with a splash of lemon. Very light body, clean finish. This would be very refreshing served nice and cold on a summer day, but otherwise just pick up a Busch and rub a lemon around the edge of the can.

The small, fizzy, white, bubbly head dies fast, leaving nothing but a glass full of dirty gold liquid. Just a little hazy. There is some tangy fruit in the nose, with some nice schpoonk. A little corn syrup. Fruity in the front. Roasty crackers. It gets quite malty in the middle, finishing crisply bitter with some corn. It's a tasty, light lager. Enough malt and some nice grainsiness.
