A beer to be completely avoided if possible. Which sadly here in the UK isnt. Its in every bar and pub. The aroma is one of watered down-ness, like smelling an open can a day after. Taste is one to behold aswell, it has a thickness to it, often with a large head, that makes it very unenjoyable at the best of times.

midovark (100) - Balssagyarmat, HUNGARY - FEB 12, 2016
Drank straight from the 0.5 l can. Medium bodied, average carbonated. Bitter in taste. Average, but I was fine with it.

davidtjm (1019) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2016
Tap. Pour is gold with a thin head, little discernible aroma. Taste is sightly sweet but watery, thin and of nothing in particular. You can drink this, but it basically tastes like nothing

thanatosti (1313) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2016
50 cl. can @ home, gift from Rick. Drank from the can but undoubtedly a clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Grainy cardboard aroma. Watery taste and finish. Just another macro lager.

Rhombic (80) - SPAIN - NOV 28, 2015
Clear golden in colour. Fresh hops in aroma. Some sweetcorn and hops in the flavour. Very short finish. Watery.

Lebo88 (213) - POLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Can 500 ml. Weak and tasteless lager exactly as one would expect. It’s high drinkability is the only positive thing about the beer.

LazyPyro (223) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Surprisingly popular here in the UK, not sure why. Overall this seemed weak and watery, with a slightly metallic/bitter finish to it. Cheap beer for students. Wouldn’t want to drink this again unless there was nothing else available. (old rating, 2007)
