Cheap and cheerful stubbies bought from lidl. Thirst quenching after work, keep it cold though, warm and it tastes off major piss. Very skunky when it’s open.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2008 The 4% screwtop dumpy from Lidl? Unscrews with a gust of pure rabbit piss. Believe me. Grass, grain, straw and....copper penny? Slightly herbal hops detectable. I shit you not. But the licked envelope and caramel E150c tires after a while. Functional, inoffensive budget lager you can ply guests with at family gatherings without offending them. Bearable. Does resembles beer.

Golden color, small white head. Nose of straw, metal, some malt. The hop is bad in the flavor, like a bit of grass. Some sweet malt, moderated carbonation and a small yeast.

Canned. Thanx to Dorqui for this one. Clear golden in color. Bubbly white head, lacings. The aroma is malty and metallic. The flavor is malty and dry with hints of metal and malts.

Canned (4.9%). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, rubber, cardboard and some mild cooked vegetables. Flavour is quite much the same with clear malts, grass and earthy hoppyness being the strongest.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2008 Can. Grassy, perfumed aroma and flavor with a hint of boiled milk. Thinnish. Apple. Disappointing

It was the cheapest thing to buy at Lidl. Cold and poured into a nice glass, it really wasn’t that bad. Clear golden color with a light, white head. Weak aroma; nothing remarkable. Flavour is appealing at the start, a little wheaty (I think). Flavour doesn’t last long though, and the overall impression is that of a rather watery beer. There is a mild bite and I may have detected a little spice. It was refreshing and inexpensive. I can’t imagine beer snobs stocking their fridges with this stuff, but if you just need some cheap brews Finkbrau might be the way to do it.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can 50 cl. Pours a clear golden, with a small head and a bad smell. The taste is very plain, with lots of hops present. The hops make the taste very dry and cardboardish, not very pleasant. Even for this small amount u can find better beers

A Mes rate: Bottle at Tom’s DP4ME tasting.
Tom, Ang and Duff went to get curry. I’d already had some so I stayed behind. Tom thrusts this in my hand, ICE cold from the fridge saying "there’s one you’ve not had." Thanks mate. Clean pilsener gold with a short lived white head. Pukey card and malt aroma. Flavourwise the hops are ok there’s just nothing like enough of them. Milky malt, very watery but possibly still just enough to kill a fish. Low quality pils, I’ve had worse but not many.
