Bottle, 0.33l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head, fair lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grassy hops, toasted malt, sugar and alcohol. Taste starts with sweet and rich malt, follows by grainy sourness with strong alcohol note, warming mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate.

HammerTroll (590) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 17, 2014
Clear golden color, small white head. Very very sweet. Way too sweet for my taste. Flat carbonation, thin to medium body. Reminds me of Bavaria 8,6%. Expected much more from Budweiser. (Pivkan 0,33l bottle)

Palate: medium body, average carbonation, medium sweat aftertaste, oily texture. Overall: Nothing unexpected. Solid strong lager with good drinkability.

BOTTLE 50CL as "Premier Select". Look: clear golden-amber with a white frothy small head. Aroma: malty, sweet, a bit metallic. Taste: simple sweetness balanced by light hops bitterness, slightly phenolic, but not really alcoholic.

Pretty decent for the style.

Hanoi (461) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Nose is good (for a larger) cereal and malt. Taste is cereal, grain, sugar a little honey and a slightly too boozy finish. The malts overwhelm and there is not much in the way of hop. Mouthfeel is good and full. It’s not bad for a larger but too sweet
