3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
can from lidl alcudia, mallorca, spain. No mention of what the brewery is, but the can says "Lidl Stiftunng & Co. KG, Stiftsbergstr. 1 D-74167 necarsulm"
also this can is 4.7% not 4.9 - perhaps lidl changed the brewer?
the barcode number on the can is 20040123 - a lidl internal number, does not reveal the brewer.
clear yellow, large smooth offwhite head.nice slightly aromatic aroma, dry pils malty, really nice aroma. flavor is sweet lager, really nice flavor, but towards the end it gets way too metallic.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can from a Lidl supermarket, tasted years ago. This was a pale golden blonde standard lager with medium, snow white head; weak aroma, grainy, sourish hint, some grassy hops, minerals. Neutral taste, slight pale malt sweetness, minerally with strongish carbonation and metallic ’touch’ to it, watery finish with a late and brief, medium, grassy hop bitterishness. Very bland, but not off-putting and okay for its style. Serves its purpose as a cheap supermarket ’generic’ kind of lager.

APPEARANCE: golden color and translucent. average white head with low retention. TASTE: dilluted grainy sweet flavour with medium bitterness that lingers into a semi-dry finish. no hop flavours. PALATE: light body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a slight watered down bulk german pilsner that lacks noble hops presence.
