Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- slightly cloudy pale golden
- decent white foam that thins slowly

The Aroma:
- not much aroma, just some basic pilsner malt

The Taste:
- taste doesn't deliver much either

The Verdict: You can tell it's a lager beer, but not much else coming through. Taste is clean and finish is nonoffensive, but difficult to come up with much else to describe this beer.
