Can. Golden colour with a white head. Light malty aroma and a grassy light sweet taste. Light body and a light bitter watery finish.

On tap in a very small, green pub in the Castle District, Budapest. As I supped this beer, in a corner, the bar suddenly became rammed with wine-guzzling, flag waving Hungarian pensioners, leaving me little room to breathe, let alone write! Still, good luck to them. A pretty plain lagery beer is Gosser I must say. Refreshing yes, interesting no. Unremarkable, though inoffensive, and nothing compared to the horrors to come.

another average offer from the LCBO. It was light, bearable and quick to the finish. Lowenbrau is a better taste in this style

Pale golden colour, thin white head fading to lace. Light malt aroma. Faintly bready with a noble hop character. Flavour is similar, a bit bready, light caramel with a decent hop finish. Moderate bitterness. Well made, if unspectacular.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden color with a quick diminishing white head. Bready malty aroma. Mouth feel is heavier than I expected. Slight citrus and grassy flavour. A decent brew.

About as middle-of-the-road as a beer can get... Hops are mediocre and give off a slight skunk taste, an ever-so-faint malt presence that needs to be a little more assertive. Not bad, but not worth going out of one’s way to acquire.

1/2 liter can poured a golden-straw colored lager with a decent fluffy cap. Good lacing and the cap has fair retention. Medium effervescence. A pungent aroma of bread dough with grassy-mown hay hop tones ( very promising). Mouth feel a tad thin... malt backbone ( sweet doughy) does not stand out against the hops ( far too pronounced for a helles) which add a lemon twang to the clean finish. Not a bad beer but not enough malt pronouncement for a Helles and a tad much for a pilsner... Is this a pilsner trying to be a Dortmunder or a Helles trying to be a Pilsner? ...this beer has an identity crisis....not bad though.

Grainy sweet malt aroma. Clear golden blonde with shy white head that diminishes to slight ring. Grainy flavour with light floral/herbal balancing bitterness. Somewhat watery with very strong carbonation. Can.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy yellow beer with minimal head. Barely any aroma, just some faint malt. Light grainy flavors with a balanced bitterness. No hop flavors to speak of. Not much malt character, either. Finishes about as clean as water. Could drink like water, but why? Perhaps I need a fresher sample.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Beautiful gold with slow bubbles. A thin white head. Very light aroma of cooked green beans and some bread. The taste is a light and refreshing blend of celery with a hint of black pepper. Not much character here, but this would make a nice lawn mower beer.
