A very bland thirst quencher. At least there were no ’off’ flavours. Actually not that bad, but doesn’t really have any taste. Just a very basic lager.

Appearance: pale, clear gold with a surprising finger of electric white head that stuck around a bit. Aroma: light grainy must, hint of skunk, light pepper. Taste: as the aroma indicates, but slightly sweet. Finish: short, watery, and mineral. Notes: A crappy pale lager as one would expect. Something weird happened, though. The next day I had one straight out of the bottle, directly after a killer workout, and it was much, much more appealing. Tried the same thing the next day: workout followed by a bottle right out of the fridge. It was darn refreshing and actually enjoyable. Maybe its light, watery crappiness makes it the perfect post-workout beer. Upping the score by a full point in return. Extra bottles left over from New Year’s Eve party.

355ml can on a flight. Pours clear light yellow with a typical European lager foam. Faint nose. Slightly bitter, very watery and a bit foamy. No particular taste to speak of.

Tastes just like a bud light...just fresher. And at 3.5 abv, this is definitely a session-able beverage. It's okay for what it is.

ordybill (172) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has the basic grass and corn aroma of light beers Appearance- Has a pale straw color with a white head Taste- A slight sweet flavor with no aftertaste, faint hint of hops Palate- Light bodied thin textured brew with a soft carbonation Overall- Not a great beer but not bad for a "light beer". If you are on a diet and need a beer to go with a meal this would work

If I’m stuck drinking a light beer, this is a better option than most. No aroma that I could detect. Light golden color. Not unattractive, just normal. Watery and fizzy palate. Light grain taste with a hint of corn. Little hops presence. Meh.

"another in the long line of simplistic slightly skunky macrobrewed beers that make the casual beer drinker think all beer tastes like pee. nothing new about the taste. not quite revolting, but not good."
