Medium amount of sweet, Pilsner malt-like sweetness with a low amount of lightly toasted, rich malty character. Light husky grainy aroma. Light honey-like oxidation aroma. No hop aroma. No esters. Very light corn-like aroma.
8 / 12

Light golden, almost straw-like in color. Good clarity. Not quite brilliant. Medium amount of white head that retreats to the edges of the glass rather quickly. Steady stream of tiny bubbles rising from bottom to top of sample.
3 / 3

Rich full, sweet, Pilsner maltiness fills the palate. Very light toasty malt character and very light dark fruit-light character is present. No hop flavor but bitterness is enough to keep the rich malt character from being cloying. Balance is tipped toward the malty. Very light metallic flavor is present in the finish. Finishes slightly on the sweet side.
13 / 20

Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Light alcohol warmth and a light creaminess. No astringency.
5 / 5

Overall a very good example of the style with just a couple minor flaws. The sample is slightly oxidized and slightly skunky - most likely from sitting on a store shelf. It's just slightly on the sweet side as well. A little more hop bitterness would help bring this more in to balance.
