honstly a pretty good lager. drank a fair few of these in my travels there, but this is my first in the usa. i remember how refreshing this thing was after a half marathon, but i find it a little less appealing in an american craft beer context now. its a basic blonde lager, no additives or preservatives or anything, pretty darn refreshing really, but nothing out of the ordinary. very well carbonated, fresh pilsener type grains, cerealy, with a classic lager yeast. the finish is super clean and quick, light lager all the way. a tiny bit skunky in this green bottle, but not enough to turn me off. watery body, super thin and light. i can see the appeal in hot weather, and i would take it over a bud or a coors or something, but its well below the craft lager standard we have set here in the states. compared to its peers though, its one of the better options.
