From Alcampo. In Teku glass. After dinner. Very refreshing, with a noticeable grassy bitterness and just the adequate amount of sweet notes to provide it some taste without tiring

Haven't had this since I was living in Toronto a year ago. Would get it in 473 ml cans at a very competitive price. (For fellow Americans , beer there is quite expensive due to government control of sales). For example I could get this for cheaper than a Bud, Molson, or even PBR.. go figure.

It's a fairly decent representation of the style. Very easy drinking, malt forward, but with a hop presence. Generally this was my fall back.. when I didn't really know what to get or had no particular mood for anything I would grab this and it was always a good choice.

Bright straw color with dense pearly activity. Slightly frothy white 3 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint lacing. Flavors of sweet roasted grains, faint skunk and metal, a bit floral, and weak noble hops. Lots of sweetness, low bitterness. Slick medium body with prickly and crispy carbonation. Light finish, lingering syrupy sweet roasted malts, and very faint grassy hops. Very fresh but watery, not very flavorful. Overall the quality is mediocre.
