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.

Awful ! Watered down p**s. Last time I had this beer was almost 20 years ago. I decided to try last weekend @ pub. No flavour, no tastes. Just gassy yellow water. It is arguably the worst enemy of the environmental protection group. Itís complete waste of water, malt(or corn rice or what ?), hop(extract), metal(cans), glass(bottle)electricity and fuel(delivery). Just drink water instead.

Very very weak tasting lager. Exceptionally bland and watery, very mildly bitter. Itís like water with a touch of alcohol and some beer flavouring added. Iíve drank plenty of it in my time mostly when I was younger. In your average pub it seems to be the go to beer for most people. Not worth bothering with.

On keg at Nuneaton FC - Didnít ask for this either. Yellow, fizzy, dry at the back. Ricey.

Iím in about the same boat as slowrunner here....itís a slightly lower than average beer. I used to think Carlsberg was alright, tried it again bunch of years ago, but that was about the time I was getting into craft beer so I just said....eh, probably the last time Iíll have this. Havenít tried it again since. Donít really feel like Iím missing anything. Especially when I see they are charging $7.29 a six pack now!

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.
