275ml bottle. Pours clear light amber with thin to moderate head. Like most macro European lagers it actually looks pretty good in the glass. Surprisingly decent aroma which promises flavour that just isnít there. Weak, watery, incredibly bland. Certainly among the worst of European lagers.

rosenbergh (7867) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2015
500 ml plastic bottle at the Emirates Stadium, London, England.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Watery lager with weak aroma of malt and skunky hops. The flavour was also very weak. Watery and horrible.

Lebo88 (43) - POLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle 500 ml. Iím trying to imagine a beer that would be worse than this, but it ís not easy. Clear golden colour, weak head. Strong skunky aroma and some rotten eggs, very repulsive. You can sense that in taste too, which makes it rather undrinkable.

"iíve had it when it was drinkable, and at other times quite skunky. otherwise, typical macrobrewed pee pee water...maybe a touch above average, but thatís about it. Donít buy."

McTapps (5124) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear light golden colour with low steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of hops, grass, citrus, grains and flowers, Citrus finish with some malty hints. Drinkable but not that nice.

Simple as it can be but still that one you enjoy all over the football world. Had it in different football stadia in the UK and it was how it was. Bit pissy with some malt and straw. Easily to drink and quite low in the back. Always love that bit of citrus upfront. And still way better than some more "sophisticated" Lagers like Oranjeboom etc. you get in the UK. Thumbs up !

Can a friends house. Colour is yellow. Smell is sweet and grainy. Taste hay and a bit watery.
