Tap in our hostel in Eindhoven. Aroma is grainy, light malt. Pours yellow gold with large head. Taste is as well grainy, malts. Easy drinking unless it gets warmer.

Bottle 660 ml. Kind of premium lager, some faint hops and malts in aroma. Quite drinkable.

Gangstergafje (311) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2015
Normal Pilsner beer. There ar no really special aroma’s in the smell. Just the smell of bitter beer. The taste is quite nice for a Pilsner. It has a little citrus appearance. A nice Pilsner to drink on a hot summer evening after a long day of work, what is just as I did.

Color dorado, espuma mínima. Aroma a cereal, a malta. Sabor a cerveza sin hacer, muy cereal y poco agradable. Lager industrial mala.

Bottiglia. Il gusto è inizialmente un poco acido. Schiuma dalla carbonatazione importante e aderente, che resta attaccata al bicchiere, lasciando un pizzo sul vetro. Amaro percettibile, gradevole e intensità olfattiva di alcol, cereali, malto di grano e pane. Persistenza olfattiva corta. Corpo rotondo, tipico delle lager tra leggero e normale con colore dorato. Persistenza gustativa sufficiente, dal gusto maltato e dolce. Intensità gustativa non impegnativa, con retrogusto di media durata e leggermente amarognolo sul finale.

Hanoi (620) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. It’s 88p.... Nose is cereal, grass, metal. Taste is very metallic, coppers, leading to cereal, slight grass and a hint of fruit. It’s a typical macro larger but, you know, 88p. No better or worse than a carling, fosters et al.

Metalflake (50) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
500ml can, poured into a lager glass. Bought this at the grocery store as a cheap beer to use for a beer can chicken recipe, drank half the can before it went up the bird’s butt. Blah. Pale watery yellow colour, heavily carbonated. Metallic, mineral flavour, faint notes of lemon and grain on the nose. Overall a pretty character-less beer, nowhere near the best pilsners I’ve had. Did make for a nice, moist chicken though...

Metal. Synthetic. Stale water. Weird finish. Appealing urine colour. It’s beer Jim, but not as we know it. I should say that this cost me 88p for 500ml so beggars and choosers and all that.

In the can @ home, picked up at Boulder Liquor Mart. Golden yellow appearance with a big white head. The aroma is bland, slightly metallic, some lemon, husky grain. Moderately sweet. Low bitterness. Twangy, lemon, chemical flavor. Not very good.

BOTTLE 50CL. Brewed in Russia. Pale yellow, white frothy head. Very bland aroma with hints of apple pie malts, metallic. The taste is dry, almost devoid of malts, some harsh bitterness with light astringency in the finish. Yuck.
