Bitburger in its summer version, fitting the recent trend of hyper-pale, soft, neutral lagers in uncoloured bottles - not promising, but let’s pour and taste anyway. Head a bit off-white, loose, thin and quickly dissipating - another bad omen. Colour indeed sunny but not more so than other pale lagers, warm golden blonde, cristal clear. Faint aroma of sweetish, honeyish pale malt, flowery hops and some solvents. Taste very neutral, watery with a malty sweetishness, hardly pils-like but pale lager alright, light sourishness, finishing shortly and very weakly hoppy, thin. Has the drinkability of mineral water but as a beer, totally uninteresting, though I did not find any actual flaws worth mentioning.

Das vielleicht nochTrinkbarste aus der Mischmaschecke von Bitburger mit einem gewissen Erinnerungswert an die Freunde von Desperados. Immer noch schient hier der Chemiker den Brauer zu übertrumpfen, doch zumindest ist dieses Zeug trinkbar.

McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2013
Weak golden in colour with very low head and thin body. Taste of bitter beer that was made weak and some citrus fruits and floral hints. Just no beer at all.

vipinvelp (3886) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2012
Clear light, very light yellow. Hard to tell foam as I am drinking from bottle. Aroma is weak pilsener. Taste is watered down pilsener, with very little aftertaste. Maybe because drinking from bottle doesn’t bring out the essence of the beer. (Düsseldorf 201210)

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2012
#1104 Hellgelb mit sehr wenigem und äußerst kurzzeitigem Schaum. Etwas undefinierbar malziges in der Nase. Im Antrunk dann wässrig. Geschmacklich kaum als Bier zu erkennen: Pappige Malzsüße mit leichter Citrus-Note. Ein Abgang, geschweige denn Hopfen, ist nicht auszumachen. Das Etikett der Klarsichtflasche ist okay, der Inhalt hingegen mies! Test vom 29.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,3,3,1,9,3 - 3,30

Transferring my data before I used to rate at Ratebeer. I’ll add a more detailed description as I drink it again.

Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is grassy, aroma is dry, medium malty, grassy, hops on wet paper, finish is bitter and grassy, strange plastic and paper background.
