E Figoun

$1.99 for the chance to try this at tower on Piedmont after this beer originally retailed around $5.99. An old(er) bottle, but with no discernible date on the label I feel totally justified in reviewing it.
Macro color on the pour except for a distinct haze – in that respect, a little like a Hefe in the glass. Poor head, not much retention.
Smell and tastes are slightly sweet, light vegetal aspects with nothing too offensive but at the same time nothing that would lead me to buy it again. Drinking is fairly easy, but one of these is more than enough.
As for style points – close to zero. It’s a macro, Euro lager for all intents and purposes and I would NEVER have guessed German Pils in a 1000 years if tasting this blind.
I dunno, maybe fresher bottles would be better, but for now this is an abomination of a Pilsner and no more than a crappy Euro lager at best.
