So this is one of those odd beers that dosen't match the style, but is easy drinking. A pale golden pour with a fluffy head, a bit soapy though.
Faint malt characteristics in the nose. I get very little hops and no Nobles. Biscuity is anything. I like it better than American macros, which have that old sock smell. This is fresh smelling. Good malt that isn't overbearing. Yet the crispness is just not there. Very slight citrus and herbal flavors, if I think about it.
Easy drinking. The ABV is very low. Session beer to be sure.

Label read "made in according to Krausening technology.

A: Poured a clear, dull maize-yellow with a bright white 2 finger foamy head that lasted for several minutes after the pour before fading with a fair clingy lacing on the sides of the glass. Visible carbonation was very faint.

S: faint as well with fresh grains and but a hint of lemony citrus.

T: pale grains with lemon notes and fresh corn. The beer starts out with a noticeable malt sweetness and fresh lemons before leaving a citrus and herbal hay lingering fade. Overall the flavor was moderately good I thought.

M: light with a nice carbonation fizzle on the tongue.

D: Drinkability was good, nothing that will oh and ah you but wont disappoint and worth a try.

Poured an extremely pale yellow color with boutious white chunky head.

Smell is very non-descript, with a light fruitiness noted.

Taste is suprisingly good. This tastes a lot like a euro lager, with some nice maly up front, and a surprising hop character that blend perfectly.

Leaves a nice crisp refreshing taste in the mouth.

This is the perfect beer for a hot summer day. Tasty, low in alcohol, crisp. This beer is really a pleasant surprise.
