Part of a Christmas Beers of the World pack. Flavorless and overall watery. Perhaps a country that is over 99% Muslim should not be brewing beer...

I could & probably should pour this crap down the drain but I’ve decided to Hate Drink it instead. Read the reviews & knew it was going to be an awful mess & so I put it in the freezer but it doesn’t help. Aroma is soggy cardboard & lost dreams. Tastes like sweet corn water from a can sprayed on the arm pits of an exploited day labourer & conditioned in an old work boot. The finish tastes like a crushed asprin stirred into an ounce of water. There’s no real hops or hope with this, all extract & syrup & life denying industrial brewing techniques. If Monsanto opened a brewery, this would be their beer. And of course my local liqour store in toronto wastes shelf space for it, proving that diversity often needs some more diversity. Yuck.

Thanks Darrell. Sunday Dinr. Golden transparent body with a thick, white head. Aromas of grain, adjuncts. Uneventful and bland. Light bodied and meh.

tbonde (194) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2015
50 cl can@home in Lager glass@approx 6 degrees C. Pours clear yellow with sufficient white head. Very faint aroma of straw, cardboard and just a hint of hops. Sweet malty taste, watery mouthfeel - don’t think the rice does it any good on that parameter. Hops only becomes tastable in the slightly bitter aftertaste. There is something out of balance in this otherwise standard industrial pilsner - swetness, maltiness and hoppiness does not add up to a pleasant beer.

This beer deserves a scale from 0-5, not 1-5. The experience is something that I’m working out with my therapist! It has left me scarred for life!

Jankes (104) - Krakow, POLAND - AUG 11, 2015
Złota barwa, średniopęcherzykowa piana dosć szybko zanika. Aromat słodowy z nutami kukurydzy i słabo wyczuwalnym karmelem. W smaku bardzo nijakie. Wysycenie średnie, na finiszu śladowa goryczka.
