Lichtgeel bier met schuim. Smaak is vlak en weinig bijzonder. Gewoon supermarkt bier.

Countbeer (4424) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Can: Served in a shaker: Medium sized fluffy white foamy head on top of a clear lighter yellow colored beer. Aromas of malts, pils malts, light wood, some oat, some cardboard and herbs. Flavours are quite low: some malts, herbs, mineral, bitters, grains, pils malts, light cardboard and some very light woody tones. Aftertaste is even lighter, some malts, light bitter, some herbs... Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, low bodied and a watery to light creamy mouthfeel. Meh...

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Some supermarket in Rotterdam: Pours golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is grainy, grassy, and cheap. Taste is slightly sweet, a tad hoppy, but mostly cheap and grainy. For a cheap-o beer with a funny label, this isn’t bad.

thanatosti (906) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2013
33 cl. can @ home, bought @ Bas van der Heijden, Rotterdam. Pale yellow with a small quicly disappearing white head. Sweet grainy aroma and taste. Faint hoppy aroma. Clean, decent but forgettable, which is good enough for a budget supermarket pilsener.

foxo82 (692) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle my girlfriend brought back from a shop in Zandvoort. Clear amber, no head. Strong yeasty aroma, metallic, slightly sweetened. Taste is some lemon Jelly Baby and slight bitterness but soon giving way to nothing - just a slight fizz that lingers on the tongue. Gassy and bland.

Douberd (2288) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2012
ABV 5%. Made from Bavaria Brewery. I got this one in a supermarket about a kilometer from my neighboorhood, where I had gone just to check out if I could find a new beer. Well, I got me a new beer but I was a bit disappointing from my findings, since they only had it in cans (where I prefer bottles), the beer looks cheap and also it’s called Best and any product which is called Best is going to be average, if you’re lucky. Poured into my standard glass for pilseners. Pale golden yellow colour, with lots of bubbes rising to the surface and two fingers of white head, froathy at first but as it was losing in height, it was gaining in density. The end result was one finger of thick, soapy head, which left some light lacing around the glass. Not bad at all. On the aroma not uch to report, typical smell of an average pilsener, maybe with some more hay aroma. Taste is neutral, nothing too offensive either, but at least leaves behind a nice, bitter aftertaste. Thin on the body with average carbonation, but far from the watery beer I was expecting. All in all, a decent brew, not the Best in any case, and for the price of 1,14/liter is a very good choice if you want a cheap beer for parties etc. To my surprise, it turned out to be pleasantly drinkable. So I guess as we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, we shouldn’t judge a beer from its can.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours a clear straw golden color with a white head. Corn and water on the aroma. A light grassy note, some straw, apple skin, and pale malt. The flavor is very watery and bland. Very grassy with a light bitterness. A bit of malt flavor and sweetness. Bland and unappealing.

rosenbergh (6800) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2011
330 ml can. Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Clear pale golden colour with average size white head. Apple, earth, farmyard and mild malt in aroma. Malt, apple, some mild fruitiness and caramel sweetness (end) in flavour. Not the worst one to be the cheapest around.

Golden body, white head. Sweet mlat, grassy hops, some apple too. Poor one.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2011
Light yellow colour, lager style head which means small one. Lager type smell, bit hops some sweetness. Taste is sweet, aroma has hops which are light. This has light body, quite thin texture. I find carbonation being on unexpected high level, but in comparison this is not most I’ve had in beer; I’m thinking about the category more in this case. There not much other to say about finish that it ends quick. Overall quite typical supermarket lager. And in the plain typicality I don’t know how in the hell it can be justified that this is called best beer? Perhaps ’mediocre pilsner beer’ was too bold for marketeers to put to label.
