2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2015 CAN. As with every beer, I give it a fair change of being drunk without prejudgment. Though Cara Pils is mostly known as a beer to get drunk as cheap as possible, especially when taste is not obligatory. But anyway, I tried to rate it besides those ideas.
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, rather stable white head.
NOSE: metal, grains, not much else though.
TASTE: flat, metallic, bad grains actually, very watery...
I can enjoy a decent pilsener, even the regular Belgian pilseners, but this was just bad...
Drank at S&G big pilsener tasting, blindly comparing 24 pilseners. Taste for most pilseners was the same, some grains, bit hoppy, quite malty and mostly bit metallic.
=> Conclusion of this beer was surprising, most beergeeks hate it, but tasting it blind, it was just a decent pilsener... So i updated the score a little

@ Sandy Bay, Cypern. Flaska från lokalt minimarket (€ 0.79). Det är fantastiskt att ett öl kan dofta och smaka så här lite och ändå få lov att kallas öl och inte vatten!

14.07.2013. 0,33l Can. Brussel, Belgium. Pale yellow colour with white head. Weak malty aroma. Grassy hops dominates because there is no malt. Very thin. Aftertaste is carbonation.

Well if you are looking for a review...then fore sure you are in the wrong site. :)
Very cheap beer in all the ways. Tasteless and really bad. Only good for people that want to get drunk cheap.

Jaune pâle, pétillance moyenne, mousse tombante. Inodore, mini-amertume et sécheresse sur la fin, aucun intérêt.

33 cl. can @ home, bought somewhere in Belgium. Light yellow with a thin white head. Grainy aroma. Watery taste which is to be expected from this type of ultra cheap lager. Not as bad as expected though.

50 cl. can thx! to Kraddel for this one – finally ticked this one. Cara pils is the official drink of the alcoholics, impoverished, drug addicts, misfits, etc. in Belgium mainly due to being crazily cheap. Without a deposit a crate of this is slightly above 3 euro’s which makes this cheaper than buying water at the supermarket. Bright, clear, golden, urine-coloured with little brief white head. Musty, wet corn in the nose, hay, dirty water, rotting lemon,… Watery, corn wet and dusty, rotting hay, light rotting, touch metallic, rotting lemon, expired medication, unnerving bitterness,… bitter disgusting aftertaste. Wattery. Not very good, touch better than expected.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale golden color with a white head. Tons of corn and a bit of pale malt sweetness. Some straw and grass on the nose. Pretty watery, too. A bit sour on the palate. Somewhat sweet, corn, pale malt, and plenty of water. Definitely some straw and grass. Light yeast and esters. Not horrible, just really bland and watery.
