Black color with red highlights and very thin aired off-white head with short retention.
Light aroma of chocolate, corn syrup and caramel malt.
Refreshing, crisp and clean taste with notes of toasted and grainy malts, mild cocoa, minerals, diacetyl that does not bother, corn, nuts and earthy hops. Mildly dry aftertaste with a low bitterness.
Light body with good carbonation.
Quite decent considering it is an Adjunct Lager, plain but tasty with high drinkability.

Very dark. Red-black with a drying layer of off-white foam. Head looks nice and a decent amount of it sticks.

Musty Euro malts with a rough graininess, some adjunct impurities, light roast bitterness, and obvious corn. Hardly a hop note in here.

Semi-roasted grain with a sweet astringency of nickel, corn syrup, and light cocoa. Not terrible. Easy 'kick-back' beer. Drinks light with a rough carb-rush finish. Husky grains accentuate that coarseness.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

11.15oz bottle(330ml) into a weird-ass 8oz glass

look is a very dark amber, with a small, bubby, mocha head that fades quickly to a ring. smell is faint roast and wheat... maybe some hops. feel is a little on the flat and syrupy side. the taste is mildly roasted and savory, with some earthy hops (think moss, or wheatgrass).

not a bad choice.
