ghawener (1522) - San Salvador, - APR 11, 2004
Bottle: Light, pale yellow with medium head. Strong, bitter and malty aroma. Taste is quite bitter and plain, like many other commercial lager. Not the best choice.

AlexCorleone (9) - ITALY - APR 23, 2015 does not count
A. Pours a golden colour with decent snowy head of sparse bubbles that sinks pretty steadily. Bead is thin, but steady. Lacing left as rings of white foam. Looks nice. S. Pungent, with a kind of corn sweetness and a whiff of barley. A slight isoamile acetate (bannana gum like Heineken) and some slightly medicinal hop phenols. Has a sourness to it, slightly citric, maybe a bit bready, like undercooked dough. T. Bannana and sourness, but ultimately seems sweet. Aspects of lolly water and a bit of a saline character almost like seawater. A bit of a chemical aspect and quite savoury on the mid-palate, like a crackery malt flavour. Tartness comes through on front and back AT. Mouthfeel is slightly textured with a hint of tingle, but mostly watery, a little bit thicker than your average lager though.

vickey9 (709) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2015
Dark golden yellow clear with small off-white head that dissipated quickly. Nose is fruity and sweet. Light carbonation almost flat. Watery body. Taste is rather sweet and a bit sour. Palate is dominated by malts, fruits and vaporizing alcohol. C@H

Alengrin (3225) - BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2015
Poured into a lager glass from a can years ago so rating from old notes. Cristal clear yellowish blonde with thin, snow white head; grainy, slightly malt sweet, some corn, metallic with thin body, hint of herbal hop bitterishness in the finish, brief. Neutral and completely lacking in character but non-offensive.

Muggus69 (1525) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003 Very cheap, very easy. Not much to it really. Quite watery compared to even most other European lager.

pigeon (16) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2014
Very average larger, bland, tasteless, with a slightly bitter chemical aftertaste? I have a feeling the beer is brewed in massive vats in an unsavoury brewery in Holland. I’ll steer clear in future.

Bamsen78 (4395) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2013
Can. Pours clear pale straw with airy light head. Clear aroma of hops with distinct skunky notes. Watery mouthfeel. Bitter, hoppy onset with a very thin body to folow. Faint dry finish. OK as. thirst quencher but not exactly enjoyable.
