Bov (9429) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 4, 2008
clear golden colour with a big irregular and elusive white foam; some herbs and paperboard in the nose; almost medium-bodied, decent bitterness and a quite long herbal finish - acceptable

After seeing Scottyís rating i couldnt help grab a cheaky 33cl can for 39p from lidl. Pours with enormous head, which takes some time to deminish but ends up with big bubbles stickin to the glass. Aroma started horrible however improved over time, german bittering hop and some pale malts in the nose if it was like this from the start it would have had more but metallic end cuts it a bit. Taste is actually quite wheaty, grainy malts, hot much hops but easy drinking enough, carbonation is actually quite smooth. Like i was expecting far worse.

scotty (1049) - SCOTLAND - JAN 29, 2008
Can from Lidl, abv is 4% rather than 4.8%. Thin and lacking in body and taste, pale straw in colour the head is large bubbled and soapy looking and fades away in less than a minute. Not that good...in fact pretty awful!

kappldav123 (4797) - GERMANY - JAN 10, 2008
Can. Made for Lidl. Looks not so good in the glass, much fast disappearing foam. Too sourish and too dry, somehow lumpish. Not a good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2007 new review: Didnít realize until today I got the spoit can when I tried this one, as I was refusing to drink this one all that time. Well, this one was surely a different thing, with kind of artificial but passable aroma dominated by sweet malts. Sweetish bitterish flavor, quite empty again, but not offensive and quite refreshing on a hot day. No traces of metal, soap or anything similar. Still, objectively, very boring beer with almost no finish.

old review: 0.5 l can. Pale yellow body with big white frothy head. More or less watery texture although leaves laces on the glass. Not enough carbonation to look very well. Some sourish industrial nose. Maybe also a bit grainy? Flavor not SO bad as the aroma, but...I could hardly finish it. Bitter, empty, watery. Something gone wrong here. Bad finish, bitter..soapy. In the shop above the product says "German quality" HA-HA! Shit...Iíve been too generous hoping it could be worser! 1/2/3/1/4=1.1

0.5l can, Finkbršu Pilsener, 4.8%, brewed by Oettinger, bought at the local Lidl store (Split).
Poured a light golden colour with a medium sized white thick chem head that went away fast. Nose, grainy malt and some apple. Taste... dry papery malty taste with weak notes of apple. Very weak chewy and just a touch lemony hopiness that continues in the aftertaste. Way less offensive than its Schankbier brother but damn dull and simple. They arenít even the cheapest beers around. Blah.

Very pale and tasteless, but no off-flavors. Totally boring (I did not spend money on this one)

Can at home. Pale orange colour. Thin head. Hoppy. Weak, watery lager. Grassy taste and quite metallic. Nothing special.
